The flavor of the month for December was cookies! A perfect theme for the holidays :D To see more delicious cookies visit Bake at 350!
After Kidlet's birthday I go in to super Christmas cookie baking mode.Cookies are the best gift we give to our family and friends and they ask about them every year!
Raspberry Thumbprints. This is just my sugar cookie dough pressed slightly and filled with some raspberry jam! White chocolate is drizzled on top.
Hidden Mint cookies are Kidlet's favorite! This recipe is by Paula Deen and can be found Here!
Reese cup cookies. This isn't really even a recipe. It uses refrigerated sugar cookie dough, bake in a mini muffin pan and stick mini reese cups in when they come out of the oven!
This is a new one we tried this year. I do not remember where the recipe came from :( It has a cookie dough bottom, pretzels, peanuts, caramel, and chocolate! Yum!
And finally, Cream Cheese Candy Cane cookies! These are always a big hit with the kids as well. The recipe is as follows:
1/4 c. butter, softened
1 (3oz.) pkg. cream cheese softened
1 pkg. Pillsbury Moist Supreme White Cake Mix
1/4 tsp. red gel or food coloring
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl, combine butter, cream cheese and
egg; blend well. Add cake mix; mix until well blended. Divide dough in half.
Add food coloring to half of dough; blend well for even red color.
For each cookie, measure 1 tsp. white dough and 1 tsp. red dough. Roll out
each into 4" ropes. Place ropes side by side. Lightly roll together; twist. Place
2" apart on ungreased cookie sheet; shape each to resemble candy canes.
Bake at 350 degrees for 7-9 minutes or just until edges are golden brown.
Immediately remove from cookie sheets.
Makes about 3 dozen.
Whew that was a lot of cookies! I hope you've all had a lovely holiday and are having a rocking good New Years Eve!
