In years past I have found some recipes that I really liked but were more labor intensive than I had time for this year. I would definitely recommend them so I thought I would include them with my pics from last year.
These Chocolate-peppermint Cookies were WONDERFUL and very festive looking. They are a peppermint-flavored chocolate wafer cookie, dipped in white chocolate and sprinkled with crushed candy cane ........YUMMY!
I also really like the thumbprint cookies which are a basic butter recipe cookie covered in ground almonds with a dollop of jam on top. In the photo below I used apricot jam and boysenberry jam as those are my parents' favorite fruits.
And the standard Christmas cookies.........sugar cookies! These are a lot of fun to cut out shapes of a Christmas-y theme and decorate.
And those are my favorite cookies to make for Christmas. I hope you find these as enjoyable as my family and I have. And have a very Merry Christmas!
