Christmas Cookie Day

This year I thought I was going to do good and get all of my Christmas cookies done in one day. Yeah, after about 3 batches, that was over. Then, I didn’t get them in the freezer fast enough and had to bake another round of Hershey Kiss cookies because those seem to be the family’s favorite! I locked those babies up and hid them under the frozen peas this time. 😉 #momwin

Is it a family affair when you start baking? This year Jayden started off helping me, but after he was on hershey kiss duty and was eating one for every 5 he opened, I kicked him out of the kitchen. LOL I don’t go all out with my cookes, but we have a few favorites we make each year and they don’t seem to go to waste so they must be good!

Snickerdoodles

I’ve altered the original recipe a little and sharing below.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine together 1/2c softened butter 1/2c shortening, 1 1/2c white sugar, 2 eggs, 2t vanilla. Next, put together 2 3/4c flour, 2t cream of tartar, 1t baking soda, 1/4t salt. Add that to the creamed mixture. Mix together 2T of sugar and 1 1/2t cinnamon to roll dough balls in before baking. Place on sheet and bake about 9 minutes. Cookies will still look a little wet, but go ahead and remove them and place on a cooling rack. Voila, you’re done!

Chocolate Chip Cookies

These were pretty big, so I doubled the recipe. You know how sometimes with chocolate chip cookies you end up grabbing 2 or 3 because one just isn’t enough? Well, these are so thick and big one is definitely enough!

Chocolate Kiss Cookies

Up until last year Jayden was allergic to peanut butter so I started making him chocolate kiss cookies. However, even though he can now have peanut butter, he requests these still.

Drop Sugar Cookies

I’m not a fan of the hard work of rolling and cutting out sugar cookies. I have my Grandma’s Recipe found HERE but I swear they’re never the same. This year I tried a different drop cookie recipe and they came out great (soft and chewy) just the way we like them! I skipped the almond extract though.

And… Parker will be making another batch of the sugar cookies because Dozer enjoyed a taste this afternoon. Obviously it doesn’t take much for him to reach the countertop. Merry Christmas 😉
