‘Tis the season for Christmas cookies! We love to bake and share all our goodies of the season with our friends and neighbors. Though the season may be different this year the love we have for our friends and family is still the same. Here are few cookies you may wish to try in finding some new favorites!
These are my favorite Christmas cookies. My grandmother used to make them when I was little. We called them meatballs because when they are cooked and not frosted they look like meatballs (at least to a child). These cookies have cloves and cinnamon. It sounds strange with chocolate but is so good!
If you are a fan of Eggnog you may want to give these cut-outs a try for a variation on your regular cut-outs. Add your favorite icing and they are delicious!
Hot Cocoa Cookies are super simple to make and with a few mini marshmallows on top make is seem like a mug in hot cocoa in cookies form. These make a nice addition to a cookie tray or a nice hot cocoa buffet for something different.
Remember the Oatmeal cookies from your childhood. These are those cookies! The recipe right off the back of the Old-Fashioned oats container. These cookies can be made with a drizzle of white chocolate over the top to make them “fancy” or plain for the cookies you remember from childhood.
These white cookies are a simple white cookie rolled into a ball. You can add your choice of flavoring (almond, lemon, vanilla) to make them special for you. A smear of your favorite frosting and some sprinkles on top make these a deliciously simple Christmas cookie.
Christmas Fairy Bites are the simplest cookies to make. They are a shortbread cookie with Christmas nonpareil sprinkles stirred in. They are simple and tasty.
Chocolate chip cookies with an extra burst of chocolate in M&Ms. Yum! They are festive with the red and green M&Ms. Kids love these cookies and adults too.
