And now, without further ado, I give you:
7 Holiday Cookie Exchange Recipes from The Dinner Divas
Red Velvet Snowballs from The Chef Next Door. It’s not a cookie exchange without a snowball cookie. I think it’s a rule. And Sarah’s red velvet version are melt in your mouth delicious.
Classic Christmas Roll-Out Sugar Cookies from Pook’s Pantry. Sissy pulls out all the stops when she decorates cookies for Christmas. Royal icing, luster dust, nonpareils, the works. You’ll want both the recipe for the roll-out sugar cookies and for the royal icing.
Peppermint Shortbread Pinwheel Cookies from Comfortably Domestic. Not only are these cookies The Cutest, but Kirsten also regales us with a tale of all’s-well-that-ends-well. These little guys were originally going to be candy canes, but sometimes things just don’t work out as we plan. Fine with me, because now we all have this peppermint shortbread pinwheel holiday cookie exchange recipe! Hooray!
Gluten-Free Chocolate Peppermint Crinkle Cookies from me. These cookies are ridiculously good you guys. Chocolatey-minty and deeply, darkly moist and wonderful. You are seriously going to love them. You’ll have to exercise your Iron Will to take them to the cookie exchange. But it will be worth it. Because of bragging rights.
Stuffed Chocolate Chip Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel Cookies from Girl in the Little Red Kitchen. Another treat featuring Ghirardelli: this time, their squares of Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels are stuffed inside a chocolate chip cookie. This seems a very good plan indeed!
Spritz Cookies from The Chef Next Door. I do love a good spritz cookie. I can remember my mom and Auntie Ev making a literal ton of them every year. It was the only time of the year my mom bought real butter. Yes, I grew up on margarine. Thankfully, I have helped my mom change her ways. Anyway, back to these cookies–easy to make, and they make a ton. Perfect for a holiday cookie exchange!
Butter Pecan Biscotti with Chocolate Drizzle from Pook’s Pantry. Feast your eyes, friends. How sexy are these biscotti? So sexy! Butter pecan. With Chocolate Drizzle. It might not get much better than that!
I hope you’ve enjoyed our holiday cookie exchange recipes, friends. Make one or make them all, you really cannot go wrong!
Thanks for spending some time with your friendly neighborhood Dinner Divas, and we’ll see you next week.
Take care, and have a lovely day.
