Unique Holiday Cookies
I’m always in search of unique holiday cookies. Yes, year round I make the old standbys like oatmeal and chocolate chip. And, yes, those are great at the holidays, but let’s make them a little different with some tweaks for the festivities.
Not sure what the best cookies out there are. But, I can assure you that the collection of cookie recipes that I’ve created for you is spot on!
Delicious Cookie Recipes
My Grandma had a small enclosed porch off her big family kitchen. And, on this porch were only sweets. Yes, for a little girl like me, it was the equivalent of a Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory. Lining this table during the holidays were delicious cookie recipes. All kinds of cookies! And, some not so typical.
Best Cookie Recipes in the World
My curated collection of best cookie recipes in the world include some from around the world. Just take a look at the Persian cookie recipe. Then there’s a fabulous Eastern European cookie. You’ll eat them and not realize you’re tasting different cultures and traditions in each bite. That’s what makes food so exciting. Knowing the we all connect and have common DNA with our food.
How to Make Holiday Cookies
My formula for how to make holiday cookies is to start about a week or more ahead of time and freeze some of the cookies that freeze well. Then all you do is take them out, even a few at a time, and serve. Many of these cookies are great frozen for a week or two. And, the with others you can make a few days ahead of time and store in airtight containers. Then there are cookies, like the buttermilk blueberry scookies, that are best made the day of serving.
