Candy Cane Christmas Cookies and Other Must Have Holiday Recipes

December 23, 2014

The holiday season is the perfect time of year to enjoy baking. You make lots of yummy things, and have the opportunity to gift them to friends and family. Baking makes wonderful quick and easy gifts, and we especially like baking for the wonderful memories it creates for the little chefs. 

Our favorite way to share the cookies we make, is to host a relaxed cookie party. First, invite a few friends who also like to bake. Tell them to bring a dozen cookies for each person attending. Finally, have plates or bags available so that your guests can swap their cookies with the each other. That way, you have to make only one type of cookie and come home with a bunch of different types. It's easy and great fun. This is especially nice when you don't have time to spend making several varieties of cookie. It's so much easier to just make a single recipe but doubling it.

Here are some cute cookies that just holler Holiday! We want to eat them all up.
