Baking a batch of cookie ornaments is a popular Christmas craft.
You can hang your cookie ornaments from a pretty ribbon on the Christmas tree and designate them as "decor only."
Or keep the cookies fresh by wrapping them with clear cellophane and then dangling them from the tree. Give the wrapped cookies to guests that visit your home during the holiday season.
**Keep cookies on the tree for a maximum of 1 week and then discard them.
