"Christmas in many cultures was a time of visiting. It was cold, so you weren't out farming and you had time to visit. Cookies were made in large amounts and with great care as something to share. And giving gifts didn't mean going out and buying something. Most gifts were sweets or crafts."
In the 17th century German and Dutch settlers introduced cookie cutters and decorative moulds to the USA. The availability of these utensils facilitated the increase in recipes in popular cookbooks. The cookie baking tradition has come a long way, but certain things never change. Our modern Christmas cookies still contain the traditional spices.
