Helpful Hints:

These spicy cookies are a holiday tradition. They store well in airtight containers. Great for holiday treats served on platters or in small bags as stocking stuffers.

If the dough gets too warm while you're working with it, it makes cutting the cookies more difficult. It is best to take out one section of dough at a time as you need it.
