On Sunday evening I finally found some time to bake up my first batch of (non-vegan, ha!) Christmas Cookies!
When it comes to my family, a huge part of getting into the Christmas spirit is baking Christmas cookies, and we have a long list of yummy recipes that we “NEED” to bake each year.
This year, I won’t be home in New Hampshire until Christmas “Eve-eve,” so I definitely wanted to get some baking done while still in NYC!
I decided to veer away from my family’s list of cookies and try something new: a traditional sugar cookie (funny that such a standard doesn’t make the Campbell cut!)
These cookies turned out to be such a treat!
Two things I especially love about this recipe?
1. I love the sparkly effect that is created by rolling the cookie dough balls into the sugar crystals.
The sugar crystals make for such a glittery, photogenic cookie! And, they are delicious.
2. I love how salty these cookies are!
Between the salted butter and the actual use of salt, there is a delicious balance between salty and sweet.
I suggest you bake these ASAP. They are awesome.
For you: What is on your “must bake” list this holiday season?
