It's that time of year again! Everyone is doing their holiday baking! Honestly, I'm a bit behind. I'm taking the day off tomorrow and plan to bake ALL DAY LONG!
Looking for something new to make? Well... I'm hoping at least a couple of these will be something new to some of you. Or maybe they'll just make you remember a long forgotten favorite!
This is a mix of old favorites and newer favorites that end up on my holiday cookie trays. Click the cookie names or the pictures to take you to the recipes.
I'll start with my favorite! (I think these are Whitney's favorite too!)
These are my mom's favorite. (well... they might not be her favorite, but of the cookies I make, they are her favorite!)
Swedish Tea Cakes
Aren't these on everyone's Christmas Cookie Trays?
Peanut Butter Blossoms
It's not a Christmas Cookie Tray if it doesn't have Mum's Cut Out Cookies on it!
Mum's Cut Out Cookies
These were my cousin Tami's favorite. We miss you Tami.
I wish these were on my trays every year. But they only make them once in a while. They seem like a lot of work. But once you get to making them they really aren't.
They are my second favorite!
Swedish Tosca Cookies
Is it really the holidays without these??
These are a pretty new addition, but I LOVE the Toffee ChocoChip variation!
Icebox Shortbread Cookies
These are VERY popular with pretty much everyone who tries them. My mom has been making them for decades!
I also make what Mum calls Press Drop Cookies... I think they are Spritz Cookies to the rest of the world. But I've been having cookie press issues for the past couple of years. This year I have a new to me, vintage cookie press... and I might have an electric one. So stay tuned Press Drop Cookies!
What goes on your holiday trays?
Is there anything that doesn't go on your holiday trays?
Much to our friend Jeff's dismay, you will never find a chocolate chip cookie on mine. You also won't find oatmeal cookies or any other cookie that I would consider an everyday kinda cookie.
But I do try to try a new cookie every year too!
So what's baking for your trays?
