If you asked me what my favorite cookie in the whole wide world is, I would not hesitate for even one second. There are chocolate chip cookies, and then there is everything else, cookie-wise (although my grandma’s molasses cookies are a close second). So me being me, I am constantly messing around with chocolate chip cookie dough to see how many ways I can come up with making my favorites, and that is how this recipe for cinnamon sugar was born. Ready to spice up your chocolate chippers? Let’s make them!
This is the time of year when everyone needs a recipe for easy gingerbread in their back pocket, because Christmas = Gingerbread. And while I am always so impressed by everyone who has the talent and patience to make gingerbread men and gingerbread houses, in my kitchen the gingerbread comes in old-fashioned classic form. Soft, warm, dusted with powdered sugar and ready in a jiffy for when you need just one more dessert. And at this time of year, who doesn’t need one more dessert? Let’s make gingerbread!
Christmas cookie, oh Christmas cookie, how ever sweet you taste! Especially if you happen to be maple walnut butterballs, which are easy little concoctions just begging to be enjoyed with your favorite cup of Christmas tea. They are those delectable little melt in your mouth type of cookie, made with ground walnuts and butter and just enough maple syrup to sweeten them up. I promise that you won’t even mind when the powdered sugar that they are rolled in gets on your shirt, because the dreamy taste is all you will care about. Let’s make them!
Well, tis the season for sure! And while I am always ready for the next gorgeous chocolate dessert, here and there I like to settle down with a cup of tea and something, well, not chocolate. A cup of holiday tea with a friend, a snowy Sunday morning, even taking a break from wrapping the umpteenth present (and where IS that emergency roll of scotch tape that I KNOW I have somewhere?)…all perfect times to have one of these sweet and perfect gingerbread muffins.
This recipe for reindeer crunch is the perfect sweet and salty gift from your holiday kitchen!
