Having started my holiday baking today I wondered what types of cookies my fellow bees bake for the holidays.
My proposed cookies:
vanilla orange cranberrry cookies
red velvet cream cheese cookies
chocolate cookies with peanut butter chips
peanut butter cookies with chopped reeese’s p.b cups on top
malted milkball cookies
apple cider caramel cookies
chocolate chip cookies
white chocolate macadamia cookies
raspberry & almond shortbread thumbprints
pumpkins cookies with maple icing
I have to admit I dropped many of my old favorites in order to try out many of the new recipes I found on pinterest. Anyone else’s Pinterest addiction driven them to change their usual Christmas traditions?
What kind of cookies are you planning to bake ?

@secondchances: Wow, that is a very impressive list! I’m a horrible baker, so I won’t bake much (maybe some candy for my mom, though that’s not really baking right?). I have tried several new cooking recipes that I found on pinterest though.

Holy crap. That’s a ton of cookies. Can we be friends, IRL? (In Real Life)
I’m gonna make these in a few weeks. They are “cinnamon bun cookies”

My co-workers have asked for snickerdoodles, so I’ll be making those classics for the first time this year! Every year, I bake the following with my mom (it’s such a nice tradition!):
Peanut butter with hershey’s kisses
Sugar cookies (cut out and decorated!)
And then there’s a few others we’ll do, but we’ll mix it up every year. In addition to cookies, I’m baking:
Chocolate pecan pie
Fruit pie of some kind (my mom wants me to teach her how to make pies!)
Apple tart (I made one for Thanksigiving at my in-laws’ and I showed my mom a picture and she told me I have to make one for her now!)
IF you haven’t guess, I LOVE BAKING!!! For Thanksgiving, I made a chocolate pecan pie, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake, and an apple tart. Baking is my therapy!

Sure we can be friends IRL! Come on over and you can be my official cookie taster. I need oone since I cant do my own tasting (gluten intolerance}. You have to share that recipe! They look amazing!

I haven’t got a list yet, but this year I’m planning on making some of my old family recipes gluten free for some of my family members with Celiac disease/gluten intolerance. So far I’m planning on:
Almond sandies (gluten free)
Iced sugar cookies (gluten free)
Spicy chocolate cookies
Chocolate dipped shortbread (gluten free)
Empire cookies (gluten free)
Not sure what other types I’ll make, but I’m guessing Pinterest will have something to do with it.

Wow! I usually limit myself to 5 types of Christmas cookies each year. This year’s list:
– Sugar cookies (w/icing)
– Peanut butter with kisses
– Chocolate crinkles
I love Pinterest for recipes, but all of this year’s cookies are family recipes – and I’m really excited to try out my new pizzelle press I got at my wedding! I have a lot of cookies to make – I like to give cookies to my office, DH’s office, our leasing office, neighbors, etc.

I’m making the norm: sugar, chocolate chip, peanut butter blossoms and probably oatmeal or oatmeal chocolate chip.

I’ve made oatmeal raisin and Kris Kringle (cranberries, pecans and white chocolate) ones so far, but I also plan on making chewy ginger cookies, Gingerbread men (with DD), shortbread, sugar, and hopefully windmill cookies (DH’s favourite). Apparently they’re not the ‘regular’ ones you can find a recipe for, though… they’re ones that his Mum used to make when he was younger, with Smarties in the middle…
She has misplaced the recipe, but I’m hoping she can find it before Christmas!

@abbie017: Peppermint snowballs? Do you just add peppermint extract or is it a whole different recipe?
Post # 13
S2013 those look amazing… recipe please? 🙂
I am probably sticking to some classics, just because of time restraints! And def. making fudge, FI’s granfather saved the plate the fudge i gave him last year was on and returned it to me a month ago letting me know he would appriciate it if i would fill it back up again, lol!

@LadyBear: peppermint extract and crushed candy canes in a basic sugar cookie dough, then roll them in powdered sugar after they are baked

I don’t cook or bake or any of that but I have a list of cookies I want! lol I actually haven’t really come across a ton of cookies on Pinterest but I do have a lot of no bake things I want to try on there.

I have never made snickerdoodles either! I always say I am going to and then they get bumped off my list lol. Please tell me what you think of them when you make them.
You sound like me. I love baking too! LOL I just listed cookies. I will also make three types of pies, a cake, cream puffs and a dozen varieties of fudge. Yes baking is therapy : D
What is a snowball?
