I am attending a cookie exchange this weekend and I want to bring a delicious new recipe to the party. I’m more of a butter cookie or chocolate chip kind of gal usually.
Nothing too complex or over the top, I have to make six dozen and I don’t have endless amounts of time.
So ladies what is your favorite holiday go to recipe? Share please!

Chocolate cookies! This recipe adds peanut butter chips, but you can use any kinds of chips and ad-ins. I’ve used toffee, crunched up peppermints, etc, and they go over like gangbusters.

Macadamia and white chocolate is always a hit! And shortbread at Christmas time with half of the biscuit dipped in chocolate is very festive too.

@Treejewel19: I make chocolate chip cookies, but instead of just chocolate chips, I add in white chocolate, peanut butter and butterscotch chips. We call them “all chip cookies.” So if the recipe calls for 2 cups of choc chips, I’ll do 1/2 choc, 1/2 white choc, 1/2 PB and 1/2 butterscotch. They’re really delicious and each bite is a different combination of flavors!

I make chocolate chips, but instead of using all flour, I sub hazelnut flour.

If you don’t want to spend too much time, I’d avoid any roll out cookies
+1 to PP’s suggestion of snickerdoodles. I have a recipe for pumpkin snickerdoodles that I’m going to try this year: https://takeabigbiteoflife.wordpress.com/2012/10/04/pumpkin-snickerdoodles/
I made these egg nog cookies last year and they were SO good! http://www.savorysimple.net/eggnog-cookies/
I’m also going to try these mint truffle cookies this year: http://www.loveandoliveoil.com/2012/12/chocolate-mint-truffle-cookies.html

@Aqualov: I PM’d you. Snickerdoodles are my favorite!
@lovekiss: I love lemon. Do you have a recipe you can email me?
@MsJ2theZ: Oh I forgot about these. My grandma makes these every christmas. I like the idea but I remember he having to chop a lot of nuts for it. Will have to look into this! Thanks.
@HisMoon: OH MY GOODNESS! That sounds delicious. The recipe looks easy too. This just may be a winner.
@Lollybags: I fear that is too fancy. Goodness knows me dipping chocolate would end in catastrophe. Although you had me at macadamia nuts. I will have to look for a recipe. Thanks!
@pineapplez17: My husband would love that! Thanks!!!
@housebee: So its like a Nutella cookie!??! Where do you get hazelnut flour? Is it easy to find?
@futuremrs1986: I agree no rolling out or cutting cookies. I don’t even think I own a rolling pin (gasp!). 🙂

@Aqualov: Could I also please get the Snickerdoodle recipe from you, please? 🙂

@Treejewel19: LOL well yeah if you’re making 6 dozen that’s definitely a lot of nut chopping. But a blender or food processor could fix that for you!

Okay just found out that someone else is bringing Snickerdoodles. Boooo!!! So I have the chocolate peanut butter chip cookies. Anything else? Something easy. 🙂

My easy go-to recipe is for Hershey’s Kiss Peanut Butter Cookies (I think that’s the name, but they’ve been called thumbprint cookies, black-eyed susans, and more by others). They’re gluten-free if you use milk chocolate kisses.
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
24 Hershey’s Kisses, unwrapped
Mix, roll into 1 inch diameter balls, and cook for 9 minutes or so at 350. Remove them from the oven, let cool 5 minutes or so, then place one unwrapped kiss on each cookie and press down a bit (until the cookie flattens out some). Let the cookies rest until cooled (about 30 minutes) or until the kiss has gotten shiny from the heat and then re-solidified.
My uncle asks for these whenever we come around because he has celiac and his wife doesn’t really do fancy baking, so he can’t get gluten free stuff very easily.

@Treejewel19: These are absolutely the most delicious, melt in your mouth, peanut butter cookies
They do take a little extra time due to the refridgeration and rolling them into balls, but I promise they’re worth it!
