Some of us are great bakers, and some of us have great baking thrust upon us. I was a very lucky child growing up having a mom who was a great baker. My mom set aside most of December to bake copious amounts of cookies that we, sadly, were not allowed to touch unless they were malformed during the baking process. I’ve never hoped so much for an ugly cookie in all of my life.
It’s been a pretty stressful year (years?) for us all globally, so why not wind down with some cookie recipes? Our Marketing Team put together our best and tastiest cookies so you can bake your heart out. Or ask your resident baker to do that for you.
We have provided full details of our recipes at this link. Let us know if any of these show up at your tables over the upcoming cozy months.
Cookies & Cream Cookies – Francesca Barchetti, Marketing/Proposal Coordinator: This recipe is one of my favorites! I make these cookies for almost every holiday now and they are a hit. And honestly who doesn’t love Oreos?!
Peanut Butter Cup Cookies – Hannah Beaudoin, Marketing/Proposal Coordinator: This recipe is perfect for peanut butter lovers! Each holiday season, we typically make these cookies along with sugar, snowball, and chocolate chip cookies.
Cake Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies – Sheila McKell, Director, Marketing: I made these for my son when he was little, and he loved them.
“Kris Kringles” (Butter Crescents) – Lauren McKenna, Proposal Writer: I learned this year they aren’t actually called “Kris Kringles” but isn’t that name more fun? I’m sticking with it. This was always one of my favorite childhood Christmas cookies and, spoiler alert, that’s followed me into adulthood. It’s mind-blowing how these somewhat simple cookies can be so delicious. These cookies always signified a fun, festive time of year filled with good memories. Throw these bad boys in the oven and watch your house transform into a cinnamon-sugary swirl of sweetness.
Double Chocolate Crinkle Cookies – Jessica Lohman, Marketing Coordinator: This recipe is a family favorite! I make them every Christmas and they are so simple and delicious.
Peanut Butter Cup Blondie – Kirk Gipson, Director, Proposals: I spent the first few years of my career in Ohio, and there is a regional cookie there known as the buckeye (so named because it resembles the poisonous nut associated with the state). The buckeye cookie has several variations, but the flavors are always peanut butter and chocolate. I associate these cookies with festive celebrations because they always seemed to be in abundance during the holidays at that time in my life. This recipe is a peanut butter cookie with all the dials turned way up. Don’t let the “blondie” part fool you; this is one giant buckeye cookie to share with your friends and family.
Candy Cane Cookies – Charles Urishko, Proposal Writer: Candy cane shortbread cookies bring back memories of years gone by. Plus, they taste like Christmas.
Whatever you are celebrating this holiday season, have fun, be safe, and enjoy it. Happy New Year!
