The list of Christmas cookies I bake includes a couple of “must-bakes.” Those would be butter cookies (or cut-out cookies), the buttery shapes we frost and decorate. Our shapes include Christmas trees, Santa with his pack, bells, stars, and a few train engines. My other mandatory treat is fudge-full peanut butter bars. Aside from those, there are a half-dozen or more recipes we rotate in and out. Those include chocolate biscotti, rum balls, and various drop and bar cookies. Nothing too fancy, but always tasty!
My oldest daughter and I have sifted through recipes, looking for something new (to us) to try this year. Which recipe do you think should make the cut?
Molasses Crinkle Cookies
I enjoy molasses flavor, and this is the perfect time of year to enjoy it. Besides, if my friend Barb at Cook and Count shares it, I know it’s both delicious and reasonably simple to prepare. No exotic ingredients or special skills required.
Frosted Cranberry Cookies
Sweet and tart are a good combination, and these cookies look oh-so-pretty!
Russian Tea Cakes
These cookies adorn many a Christmas plate. My only fear is that they become too dry. Not much worse than a dry cookie that leaves you groping for something to wash it down with.
Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies
Maybe it’s the red in these cookies, but by color alone, I think they’d make a great Christmas cookie. And, if they’re anything like chocolate crinkle cookies, they’ll be delicious.
Lemon Ricotta Cookies with Lemon Glaze
A little tart to go with all the sweet sounds really appealing to me.
What Christmas cookie should I add to our repertoire?
