Ho Ho Ho, Holiday Treats!

It’s that time of the year again – cookie madness! My little tin above features gingerbread people, red velvet whoopie pies with peppermint cream cheese filling, ginger chews, peanut butter and shortbread (two kind: regular and cranberry lemon zest. Most of the above recipes can be found on my last year’s post with the exception of a few new ones. This year I tried a few new recipes and they are cookie-monster-approved! How do I know? I live with one 😉
Here’s a few for now, more to come.

1. Almond Snowballs

Word of warning, these delicate cuties are a little hard to form – will require some patience and finesse. Be gentle with them while handing the balls, prior to putting them in the oven – they may crumble easily. Having said that, the same crumbly-ness helps to make it more delicious!

2. Soft Snickerdoodles

Fresh out of the over, they guys remind me of mini cinnamon sugar donuts from the fair! Nice and chewy as promised!

This makes a pretty large batch. I decorated half with sugar sprinkles and saved half to decorate with icing sugar.
