Wow your guests and cover your Christmas tree with gingerbread snowflake ornaments. Roll out the cookie dough and trace these patterns into the dough and cut out with a knife. Bake according to the recipe instructions. If the cookie is to become an ornament bake an aluminum ornamento holder or bent paper clip into the dough.
Don't decorate the cookie with icing however, as the icing will soften the cookie and it may fall off the Christmas tree. Try making stained glass window cookies with chopped up hard candies to melt into windows.
You can find hundreds of snowflake designs to base your cookie designs upon at paper snowflakes, a Scissorcraft web site.
