The holiday season means lot of goodies — especially cookies. They come in all flavors and in all shapes — Christmas trees, Santa’s sleigh and snowmen, to name a few. That’s why today is part of Cookie Cutter Week. In the next few days, in kitchens all over the country, people will be digging in the back of utensil drawers and boxes on pantry shelves to find their cookie cutters, some of them passed down through the family for decades. But today’s hectic lifestyle, with long working hours and tiring commutes, doesn’t leave time for many to do their own baking. To fill the gap, there are nearly 6,300 retail bakeries in the U.S. — where baked goods are prepared on site, including many kinds of cookies in traditional holiday shapes.
