Satisfy your holiday sweet tooth (and leave a little something for Santa) with festive cookies that exclude milk. Note that several cookie recipes do include butter—not a problem for the lactose intolerant as butter is mostly fat (for the allergic and strictly kosher, use a butter substitute). For perfect ginger or sugar cookie cutouts, chill the dough for a few minutes after rolling out and dip the cutters in flour before using. If eggs are a concern in your family, try these egg-free Christmas treats.
