Christmas is right around the corner! That means it’s time to tie on your favorite apron, spend some time in the kitchen and whip up a batch of delicious holiday cookies. We all have our favorites like Grandma’s Spritz Cookies or Mom’s Peanut Butter Blossoms, but why not try adding a new potential favorite to the mix? Grab your loved ones and the vacuum (for the inevitable flour mess you know you’re going to make) and check out some of our new favorite cookies to make for the holidays!
Pistachio Cherry Melt-Away Cookies
These red and green cuties are perfect for Christmas in the looks and taste department. The marriage of pistachio and cherry flavors creates a delicious cookie combo. Our tip for the cherries? Chop them in a food processor and drain them in a sieve. Pat dry to ensure all the juice is out. Want to skip all the steps? Try substituting dried cherries instead!
Frosted Peppermint Brownie Cookies
Is it a brownie? Is it a cookie? That’s up to you, but what we can tell you is that these cookies are 100% delicious. This decadent brookie (brownie cookie) is gooey, chocolaty and worth every bite. Don’t forget to use the cream cheese peppermint frosting to make it over-the-top divine.
Hot Cocoa Cookies
What’s better than hot chocolate during the holidays? Hot chocolate in a cookie? Sounds pretty good to us! Topped with a marshmallow and chocolate, these cookies were made for winter evenings. Try pairing with a cold glass of milk, or go crazy and make a cup of hot chocolate. Why not? It’s Christmas!
Melt-in-your-Mouth Eggnog Cookies
If you’re like us, you wait around all year for eggnog, and when it finally arrives you can’t get enough of it! Take a break from the eggnog coffee creamers, lattes and ice cream and try your hand at these frosted eggnog cookies. The frosting is a decadent eggnog buttercream, and when topped with nutmeg, brings these cookies into Amazing Town.
Soft & Chewy Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies
The name pretty much says it all about these cookies, and we can’t get over how much we love this dessert. Slightly tart cranberries, creamy white chocolate chips and sweet vanilla, all tied together in a delightful cookie! Trust us, these cranberry cookies are worth a try!
White Chocolate Dipped Ginger Cookies
What would the holidays be without ginger cookies? Whether you shape them into men or decorate them with holly berries like this recipe, it’s a must-have for the season. White chocolate transforms these plain ginger cookies into a work of art perfect for sharing at parties or gifting to friends and family.
Perfect Sugar Cookie Cut-Outs
The holiday season is all about family, traditions and fun. This recipe takes a traditional recipe, and adds a few secret ingredients and techniques to make it innovative and creative. We love deciding on the shapes we want the cookies to be, and decorating them with sprinkles and frostings.
