A Baker's Dozen of Christmas Cookies -- Day 7

I was an avid cook as a child -- even before I was allowed to use the oven by myself. My mom would never let me make cookies without supervision, but I could use the stovetop to melt chocolate. My poor mother: Come holiday season I made batch after batch after batch of these cookies.
