Are you a cookie fiend? A Cookie-A-Holic? Are you looking for that perfect plate of cookies to exchange at your office, church, or school function? Do your taste buds water for new recipes, but you don’t know where to find just the right one?
As the holidays approach, one great way to celebrate is a cookie swap. Whether you're hosting or a guest, everyone will love this kind of party. Each guest makes a few dozen cookies and brings copies of the recipes to swap with the other guests. All the guests should leave the party with a wide assortment of cookies to try.
The Christmas season is now upon us, and I can’t wait to make (and eat!) some Christmas cookies! I remember when I was little, going to my grandma’s house in the weeks before Christmas for a day of baking. I would help her mix up the dough, cut out the cookies using her huge supply of cookie cutters, and patiently wait for the first batch to come out of the oven and cool enough that I could begin my cookie decorating extravaganza. There were all kinds of colors of icing and sprinkles to use.
What would this holiday month be without those tasty, sugar-sprinkled, melt-in-your-mouth morsels we call cookies? To commemorate this cookie baking month, the Cookie Cutters Collectors Club has deemed December 1st-7th National Cookie Cutter Week.
What is your favorite Christmas tradition? In my family, it just isn't Christmas without our favorite cookies. My kids love our candy cane cookies made with sugar cookie dough.
We roll out a small ball of red dough and a small ball of plain dough into thin pencil shapes. Then, we twist the two together and form a candy cane shape and bake. If we are feeling lazy, we make the candy cane with plain dough, and after baking, we frost the cookie with white frosting and use red sugar sprinkles to decorate.
October is National Cookie Month, now I have an excuse to eat more cookies! It wouldn’t be right if I didn’t support National Cookie Month. EVERYONE likes cookies!
This would be a good time to have a cookie exchange with your friends. What a great excuse to get together with friends, taste cookies, and trade recipes. Never tried a cookie exchange? Here is what you need to do.
This Christmas involved a lot of baking on my part, and the festivities just wouldn't have been complete without a batch of cookies or two. This year though, I deviated from the tried and true sugar cookies and went for something a little more culturally interesting. I made peppernuts. What are peppernuts? Well, they involve neither pepper nor nuts, so don't let the name scare you away. They're tiny round cookies that are meant to be eaten by the handful. And they involve something that's difficult to find around here -- cardamom.
