The holidays have always been an excuse to spend more time in the kitchen. Christmas just isn't Christmas without the chance to indulge in an extra cookie or two... or seven. For me, sharing good food and good times with friends and family during the holidays is much more important than swapping gifts or cards.

Some of the recipes here are my Italian family heirlooms - simple cookies that squeeze every bit of goodness out of citrus and nuts. Others are more recent additions that I've found over the years and have earned a place on my holiday table. Some are easy as can be, others require a little more time to make. Some of them are elegantly understated, while a few are completely decadent. They are all refreshing changes from the glut of store-bought sugar cookies and candy canes that show up in December. Make a couple for your cookie tray this year and surprise your friends with a little variety. It's the spice of life, they say. And it's most definitely the flavor of Christmas.
