One of my Christmas season goals is to make special holiday treats with Gracie at least twice.
Every year, we make some holiday treats and package them up to distribute to our neighbors. It's a little token of good will, and everyone loves some extra Christmas cookies.
I'm a little embarrassed to say this, but the most raved about ookie we've shared the last couple of years was actually a pre-made dough from the dairy case of the grocery store.
The horrors! The horrors!
I always get a little anxious when someone asks for the recipe, but really, there's no shame in buying premade cookie dough. It tastes good or else they wouldn't sell it.
Grace likes to use a mini scoop to portion out the cookies onto the cookie sheet.
Unfortunately, using pre-made cookie dough cuts out a lot of the fun of cooking with Grace – letting her try to crack eggs, measuring together, stirring, and using the mixer. I like doing that stuff together.
Here are a few recipes that I like. I will probably use some of them this year.
- Double Chocolate Candy Corn Cookies – Obviously, they won't have candy corn in them. We'll replace it with something else. Maybe Christmas M&Ms? Or maybe something like little tree candies. Or something.
- Peanut Butter Marshmallow Fudge – This would be cut into squares.
- Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls
- Christmas Crack
- Double Chocolate Pecan Cookies
