These are very special cookies. Traditionally, my family makes these cookies only for Christmas and maybe weddings. On Christmas, the Rinaldis put these Italian holiday cookies out on a plate for Santa when he comes down the chimney. My mother always made cookies like these with my aunt, and they passed the tradition down to me. Making all three varieties makes for a special holiday display. For an easy but impressive garnish, lay a fork and spoon in the center of the plate. Put a spoonful of cocoa powder into a fine-mesh strainer and dust the cocoa over the platter. Carefully pick up the silverware and arrange the cookies around the stenciled pattern.
