For some people, the challenge of extravagant Christmas Cookies is a welcomed seasonal feat. For others of us who aren’t so at home in our kitchen, the idea of six mixing bowls and weaving together different colored dough for perfectly crafted, peppermint sprinkled candy cane cookies is stress-inducing to even think about (or write about).

Thankfully, this cookie recipe produces 70 stellar cookies to ring in the holiday season with minimal effort, while looking like they took a whole lot more work than they actually were.
