Would like ideas for Holiday cookies not using the oven.

Our oven just stopped working and they say 2 weeks to order and deliver a new one. With Christmas approaching in less than 2 weeks I am looking for ideas for cookies that do not require baking in the oven. My son is severly nut/ peanut allergic so using bakery products is not an option. I have a recipe for pizelle and another for Welsh cookies "baked" on a griddle. Do you know of any others? Thanks!
