Feel Good Friday: Christmas Cookie Extravaganza

Boy oh boy, did I cook up a storm this past weekend!

I don’t know what hit me but I cooked FIVE Christmas cookie recipes (well four cookies, one muffin) and it was all super fun.

It definitely got me in the Christmas spirit.

All in all, it took about 4 hours.

Here are the five recipes I followed, all from other bloggers:

For all my gluten-free friends: Almond Flour Frosted Sugar Cookies

I don’t often use Almond Flour so I didn’t know quite what to expect here, but for gluten-free cookies, these came out great! Healthy and good. Win, win.

A request from Sam: Cranberry Walnut Maple Muffins

We both love anything maple-flavored.

Have you ever cut a muffin in half, spread butter inside and seared them face-down on a pan?

Damn good idea.

One of my favorite things to make: Chocolate Chip Biscotti

These are perfect dipped in hot coffee. šŸ˜‰

If you’re more adventurous, try pistachio and cranberry biscotti.

Anything gingery is great to me: Chewy Gingersnaps

I knew I wanted something that involved pecans: Butter Pecan Cookies

Soooo buttery. šŸ™‚

Such a fun day baking lots of goodies.

I plan on bagging these up and sharing them with friends and family.

What are your go-to holiday recipes? I’m always looking for new ideas to add to my collection.

Have something sweet,
Ari
