Hello there and welcome to a wonderful Tuesday post. As we move closer to Christmas many of you are probably starting your holiday baking to fill your home with wonderful cookie scents. In fact, this past weekend I spent two days baking with some ladies and made tons of different cookies. So for this post I thought I would share some of the best recipes that we tried with you! Enjoy!
Throw back to this lovely day with Lux!
Christmas dessert recipes:
Prep time: 15 minutes Cook time: 10 minutes
One of my friends made these delicious cookies and they are quite delicious. Soft sugar cookies filled with melted caramel and topped with chocolate drizzle. These are definitely one of my favorites for this Christmas! Click on the link for the recipe.
Prep time: 60 minutes
These cookie dough truffles were definitely amazing and totally worth taking a whole plate home. They are cookie dough balls without the egg, covered in chocolate and chilled in the fridge until they harden. Seriously delicious. Click on the link above for the recipe.
Prep time: 20 minutes Bake time: 12 minutes
I was the one who took the lead on these cookies and they came out amazing. Basically you take a sugar cookie mix and add maraschino cherries to the mix and Voilà! The chocolate kiss on the top melts a little since they are still warm when you remove them from the oven so make sure to try one right off the plate. To see the recipe, just click on the link above!
Prep time: ~10 minutes
Feeling a bit thirsty while you are baking all of these cookies? Then make some caramel apple sangria! This recipe is super easy to make and it definitely pairs well with friends and baking in the kitchen all day. Definitely one of my new favorite sangria recipes to keep around this winter.
Melt time: 20 minutes
This is not really a recipe but definitely a great tip to remember when you need to dip cookies and pretzels in chocolate. Instead of dealing with two pans and melting chocolate on the stove, simply place chocolate in mason jars and warm in your crock pot. We decided to melt chocolate this way to dip pretzel sticks in and it was a life saver!
No bake! Prep time: 15 minutes
So I am not a big fan of anything butterscotch but these little haystacks are absolutely delicious. Also these haystacks are really easy to make and you only need four ingredients: peanuts, chow mein noodles, butterscotch morsels, and peanut butter. You have to add these to your baking list!
Prep time: 25 minutes Bake time: 10-12 minutes
These great little cookies put a twist on the typical sugar cookie by adding a hint of peppermint in a cute holiday candy cane twist. I will warn you, after a while making candy cane shapes can become rather boring so feel free to make other designs, I know we sure did!
Here is a photo of a few of the cookies we completed over the weekend. If you look closely you can see the chocolate dipped pretzels, cinnamon sugar cookies, candy cane cookies, and no bake cookies underneath. It was a lot of fun getting together with my friends to make all these treats so make sure you make time to bake those cookies for Santa!
Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
