I made chocolate crinkle cookies for the first time this year and I’m positive that they will be included in my permanent Christmas cookie repertoire from now on! I do not only love how these cookies taste (the chewy, chocolaty flavor) but I also love how they look! Chocolate crinkle cookies make me think of chocolate cookies that were forgotten outside when it snowed. All you chocolate lovers out there should definitely try them! They look as cute as they are addictive.
I didn’t really know what to call today’s delicious treats. Petits fours sounds very fancy and impressive don’t you think? ;)
These thumbprint cookies are buttery soft and crumbly. Plus they have the perfect ratio of cookie dough and jam. The dough itself is not very sweet which complements well the tangy yet sweet taste of the jam. And the dark rum flavor adds a little something.
Thumbprint cookies are very easy to make and even if your ‘thumbprint’ is not perfect, once they are baked and filled you won’t even notice it. If however you are like me, eat the ones that you find have imperfections ;) That is my personal rule!
Can you believe that Christmas is only 12 days away?! Are you done with your Christmas shopping? I still haven’t bought all of my Christmas presents even though I started early this year.. I guess Amazon will be my best friend these next two weeks!
It is day 10 of my recipe baking marathon and today I’m sharing with you my favorite Gingerbread cookie recipe. Over the years, my mom and I tried a lot of gingerbread cookie recipes and they all tasted good but the cookies would get very hard and crispy within a few days of making them, even with apple slices put in the cookie jars. But it won’t happen with this recipe, your gingerbread cookies will stay soft for up to 4 weeks! And your house will smell like Christmas :)
What better way to enjoy a nice cup of hot chocolate than with a crumbly, nutty biscotti. Although pistachio biscotti are not really a Christmas cookie, I always seem to make them before Christmas.
