When my kids were small, I would bake several batches of cutout type sugar cookies just after Thanksgiving. I used Christmas Theme Cookie cutters and also cut Christmas shapes from cereal box cardboard. I would cut around them with a knife to make unique cookies. I would pack them into freezer containers and freeze them. Then, on the day the kids got out of school for Christmas vacation, I would have the kitchen table set up for them with icings in several colors, chocolate chips, raisins, cinnamon red hots, colored sprinkles and colored sugar, coconut. etc. They spent the afternoon decorating cookies and making gift plates for friends and family. They always looked forward to this day.
