Chocolate chip with a twist
Everyone loves the classics, and chocolate chip is at the top of most of our list. However, this season let’s put a twist on this classic cookie. Make chocolate chip cookies more festive by adding Smarties to the cookie dough. Why not add red and green Smarties that will give your cookies the holiday cheer but also add a nice crunch to your cookies.
Another twist is making gluten-free Christmas cookies or vegan chocolate chip cookies. A lot of people are turning to vegan eating habits, but just because it is vegan doesn’t mean it can’t be tasty. Veganism means relying on plant-based foods. Instead of using milk, you can substitute almond, oat or soy milk, which are all absolutely delicious. Instead of butter, you can purchase vegan butter or simply use canola oil.
Apple cinnamon spice cookie
The smells of the holiday season are a treat in itself. If you haven’t tried apple cinnamon spice cookies before then, you are in for a treat. The ingredients include cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, apples, dried cherries and walnuts. These cookies are delicious. You can also make a frosting to go with them. For the frosting, use brown sugar, milk, unsalted butter, vanilla and walnuts.
Nutty Shortbread Cookies
Here is another twist on a holiday classic cookie. Shortbread cookies are crumbly yet smooth. These nutty shortbread cookies have the same texture but a smooth nut flavour. For these cookies, use your favourite shortbread cookie recipes, but substitute flour for almond flour. If you really want a nutty punch, you can also add ground hazelnuts too.
Traditional Cut-out Cookies
Cut-out cookies, popularly referred to as Christmas sugar cookies, are fun to bake and decorate. Click here to check out fun ways to target sugar cookies. They are perfect cookies when it comes to adding your own style. What is great about cut-out cookies is they are simple recipes that usually require ingredients you likely already have in your pantry like flour, milk, eggs and vanilla extract. But to be honest, you can use any of your favourite cookie recipes to make cookies in different shapes. To make these cookies, simply roll the cookie dough flat and use shapes like Christmas trees, stars or reindeers. Once the cookies have baked and cooled, then make frosting using milk, butter and powdered sugar. Dye the frosting in any colour you wish, and start decorating those cookies.
