Ruby Jewel Christmas Cookies (Williams-Sonoma)

24-36 servings
These are very delicious, buttery shortbread cookies. They are relatively simple to make. For this and any recipe that calls for cold butter, I usually place my butter in the freezer prior to use. I do this because if I want my cookies to come out soft and buttery, the butter that is used should be cold so that it does not melt while you are handling the dough. Another thing I do to keep the dough nice and cold is that I also place all the baking utensils that I will be using in the freezer, e.i: the cutting board, rolling pin, cookie cutter, mixing bowl, etc. (except for the cookie sheet). Try to work fast so that body heat from your hands does not penetrate the dough as much.
