One of the best things about the holidays is that cookies, cakes, and candy – the majority of my guilty pleasures – aren’t so guilty. Lately, I have had the urge to cook and bake more, and I REALLY want to bake some Christmas cookies. They make really good gifts, and cookie exchanges are a good way to achieve variety without having to do a huge amount of baking. I am thinking of joining in the one at work.
Should you want to participate in your own cookie exchange, here are some fun recipes: Reindeer are my favorite here are 1, 2 fun recipes to try. Here are 1, 2, 3 cute little melting snowmen, which seem to be popular this year. Christmas trees are also popular, like these 1, 2, 3, 4; and finally, ornament cookies have been yummy since I was a kid, like these 1, 2, 3, 4. These are for Santa. And, I’m sure he wouldn’t mind washing them all down with a little Christmas Cookie Martini. Eat, drink, and be merry! Photo: Lulu the Baker
