Holiday Cookie Recipes

Holiday Cookie Recipes   via

Baking cookies with the family is a tradition that many Americans indulge in during the holiday season. If you’re looking to do something different with your holiday cookies this year, this guide is going to introduce you to a range of different options open to you. You’ll be surprised at how many variations there is on this old classic.

Chocolate Diablo Cookies

This devilish name is given to these cookies because they contain a secret you would never know from just looking at them. Despite looking like ordinary chocolate chip cookies, there’s a hint of cayenne pepper added to the mix. It’s just enough to add a spicy sharpness to the cookies without forcing the eater to run to the nearest water faucet.

And if you really wanted to you could even repurpose these cookies as prank cookies!

Toasted Coconut and Orange Icebox Cookies

Toasted coconut and orange icebox cookies can be made weeks in advance of the date when they’re going to be eaten. The base consists of a toasted coconut and orange zest dough. Roll them into logs, or whatever shape you like, and leave them in the fridge weeks in advance.

Then you slice them into the size you want and bake them. Dip them into some melted dark or white chocolate to complete the dish.

Peppermint Pattie-Stuffed Chocolate Cookies

Peppermint Pattie-stuffed chocolate cookies are the biscuit you want if you want to surprise a few people. It’s essentially a conventional chocolate cookie with a wad of peppermint hidden inside. They only release their rich flavor once you bite into them. Play around with the amount of peppermint baked into them to control the flavor. A master of baking can create wonderful flavors with this recipe.

K and C Thumbprint Cookies

K and C thumbprint cookies are named because of the marmalade-filled in the center of every one. They’re made from a base of black pepper and parmesan. The taste is then sharpened using an orange-cranberry-thyme marmalade. If you feel like experimenting you can even swap out the marmalade for your favorite jam or sauce. You could even try using honey if you want something sweeter and stickier.

Pumpkin Chocolate Butterscotch Chip Cookies

Butterscotch is an alternative to the chocolate and spice-filled alternatives that people tend to come up with during the holidays. If you love both Halloween and Christmas, these are the cookies for you. Their bright orange aesthetic is sure to stand out from the crowd, and the taste of pumpkin on chocolate is quite simply heavenly. You’ll never want to try another cookie again after this.

Baking for All the Family

None of these recipes are complicated to follow. These cookies are great to bake with the whole family. Sometimes it’s not the satisfying crunch of a chocolate chip cookie that makes it worthwhile but baking the cookies from scratch with the people you love.
