In the lead up to Christmas, we’re all busy decorating the house, rushing to the shops and of course, planning our awesome Christmas cookies and menus!
Flicking through my Pinterest Christmas board, I noticed I had pinned SO MANY incredibly delicious looking cookie recipes that I have yet to try out so, I’ve shortlisted 6 of my favourites to try out this Christmas!
Have you tried any of these recipes? Let us know what you thought in the comments section below.
Speculoos Spice Cookies by The View From Great Island
Ring in the holidays this year by baking a batch of good old fashioned spiced cookies – that’ll get some serious Christmas scents wafting through your home! This recipe promises a deliciously spiced cookie with a dough firm enough to allow just about any shape you like: Just look at those delicate little snowflakes!
Sugar Plum Shortbread Christmas Cookies by Wicked Good Kitchen
Who doesn’t think Christmas thoughts immediately after hearing the words ‘Sugar Plum’? YUM! Can’t wait to give these ones a go and would love to experiment with some different colours and flavours, such as lemon or strawberry!
Caramel Filled Bon Bon Cookies by Creations by Kara
Another great ‘Mini-Pudding’ idea: Buy a supermarket Christmas cake and crumble it all up in a large mixing bowl. Add a few dashes of brandy (or orange juice) until you have a roll-able dough. Roll into little balls and shape into tiny Christmas puddings. Decorate with melted white chocolate and lollies (as in the above example) and voila – Another great way to serve tiny Christmas puddings this year!
Marble Sugar Cookies by Two Sisters Crafting
A super delicious and deceivingly easy to make twist on a traditional Christmas favourite, these Marble Sugar Cookies will add a colourful pop to your dessert table this Christmas. Very excited to try these out – I’m all for fancy-pants cookies that are also EASY to put together!
Hot Cocoa Cookies by Pip & Ebby
Now these take my breath away. A fudgy chocolate cookie topped with a gooey marshmallow = Perfection! This image has been shared among all those I hold dear, as if I am showing off a newborn. I simply cannot wait to try out this recipe!
Holiday Pinwheel Cookies by That Skinny Chick Can Bake
Now, I have had this particular cookie recipe on my Pinterest board for the longest time ever. I always look at it and feel guilty that I’ve still not made it, but all that must stop this year as I fully intend to bake these beauties in every single colour of the rainbow!
