I had a ton of cookie recipes on my Christmas must-make list, and truth be told, some were pretty fancy-schmancy. But I decided that the list simply wasn’t going to happen. 

That’s sort of the theme of the last few years, right?

Instead of stressing out, I’m making a few Christmas cookies that are simple, but absolute crowd-pleasers. Cookies like these Peppermint Mocha Cookies, plus Peanut Butter Blossoms, Rum Balls, and Snowball Cookies – they’re simple, they’re delicious, and everyone loves them, making them total wins in my book.

I’m most definitely cutting myself a break this year, and if you’re in a similar situation, you should too.

3-Ingredient Banana Oatmeal Cookies

Let’s not mistake these healthy banana oat cookies for traditional cookies, these are best eaten right out of the oven! They are soft and chewy, and so delicious!! Think banana nut bread only as a cookie. You can even eat them for breakfast or enjoy them as a snack or dessert. I’ve also created variations of these banana oatmeal cookies, try these Chocolate Chip Healthy Oat Cookie, and my PB & J Healthy Oat Cookie.

Oh my gosh. New favorite christmas cookie alert!

These cookies are DELISH!

This drop cookie is made with dried cranberries, cream cheese frosting and hit of orange or cinnamon if you wish. It’s FESTIVE. And slightly chewy. It’s so buttery and good.

I’ll be honest. This has never been my favorite flavor combination. Cranberry orange is good but it’s just not something I would choose first. We all know what a psycho chocolate peanut butter fan I am – and those flavor combos are on two totally different spectrums.

I gotta say, this cookie may be changing my mind. This is such a good cookie!!

The original recipe called for fresh cranberries. I like using fresh cranberries sometimes, but they really didn’t appeal to me in cookies. And I often have trouble finding them other than, like, three random weeks in November. 

So here we are! An easy, buttery drop cookie stuffed with dried cranberries. YUM.

Also, the term drop cookie is funny! You really can drop spoonfuls of these right onto the baking sheet. I prefer to do a more perfect “drop” with an ice cream scoop so they are roughly the same size and look pretty. In other words, so they look instagram-pretty. You know.

These cookies are also frosted!! Clearly.

I dollop on some of my cream cheese frosting, making these some of the kids’ new favorite cookies too. Anything with frosting.

The frosting excites me too, because I liiiiiive for cream cheese frosting.

And you can totally spice this up too. Add a bit of cinnamon or nutmeg to the frosting. Stir in some freshly grated orange zest (my fave). (more…)

Peanut Butter Blossoms

Peanut Butter Blossoms – sometimes known as Hershey Kiss Cookies or Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies – are the perfect classic holiday cookie to make with kids or bring to a cookie exchange.

Long-time readers know that I used to teach school full time – more specifically junior high. 

I found myself with an extra period each Friday and had to figure out something to do with the 50 minutes that would both keep the kids busy and force them to interact with each other in a positive manner.

I remember sitting at the computer when it hit me – I could have them cook and bake together.

I quickly pretty much relinquished all control over what we cooked and baked to my students. I allowed them to choose the recipes, create the shopping lists and make the dish from start to finish (minus any knife work).

Although I was a little bit nervous with the whole process, the students displayed an amazing amount of teamwork and enthusiasm – honestly, I couldn’t have been more proud of them.

During the holidays, we decided to make Peanut Butter Blossom cookies. I thought there was no more perfect time of year to introduce them to this classic chocolate-peanut butter cookie.

Even though I haven’t taught full-time in years, I’m still grateful for the opportunity to allow my students to channel their creativity and curiosity in a positive way. I hope they still remember making Peanut Butter Blossoms together and taking them home to share with their families.

I’m one of those moms that packs cute lunches for my girl. Whether it’s ghost shaped sandwiches and cucumbers cut out to look like tiny spiders during Halloween, or adorable little Christmas tree shaped pepperoni and cheese pieces served with gingerbread cookies for a sweet treat – I am that mom and I wouldn’t have it any other way!

Now that Elle is a bit older, I am super excited about getting her into the kitchen during winter break to create some new holiday baking traditions and of course, pass down some from my childhood.

First on our list are homemade gingerbread cookies. They’re not only adorable, but also perfectly festive and so fun to make with kids.

Of course we’ll also be whipping up some of our other family favorites like peanut butter blossoms, snowball cookies, rum balls and Christmas cracker toffee.

These unique and delicious oatmeal cookies are a textural delight: crispy on the edges, soft and chewy in the center, and studded with chunks of cinnamon-spiced dried apples and crunchy toffee bits throughout.

Look, when it comes to cookies I’ll admit to being lured by the fancy: the filled and the frosted, the stuffed and the sprinkled. I tend to write off anything else as boring and not worth my time. I mean, I don’t even have a classic chocolate chip cookie recipe on this site for gosh sakes.

That said, despite the fact that these toffee apple oatmeal cookies are decidedly not fancy, not to mention not the least bit photogenic, they may just be one of my favorite cookies of the year.

Texturally, they’re a delight, something that’s incredibly hard to convey with photos. I’d describe them as both chewy AND crispy, proof that the impossible is possible.
