Welcome to Day #4 of Christmas Week, a multi-blogger event co-hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Jen from Juanita’s Cocina! We hope you enjoy this fabulous event. Continue to tune in as we share another delicious Christmas treat today, and tomorrow.
Today instead of a Christmas candy recipe, I have a delicious Christmas cookie recipe instead.
I grew up with my dad making his delicious and almost famous toffee (recipe coming soon) every winter to give out to our neighbors and friends and family. But I don’t have that one thing that I make to give out to people. I like trying so many different recipes that I usually end up giving out whatever I have made that tastes good. I’ve given out peanut butter and chocolate fudge, cookies, sweet breads, we even gave smoked trout one year.
These cookies are definitely good enough to give out to your neighbors, plus they are easy and delicious for you to eat too!
This recipe is inspired by these cookies from Baked Perfection.
- ½ cup butter (1 stick), softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 large egg
- 2 cups flour
- ¼ tsp salt
- ½ tsp baking soda
- 2 TBS milk
- 3 TBS each red and green sprinkles
- about 28 peppermint/candy cane kisses
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- Cream together your butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
- Add in your egg and vanilla and stir to combine.
- Mix in your milk.
- Add your dry ingredients and stir into the mixture.
- Roll dough into 1 inch sized balls (dough is a little sticky)
- Roll each ball into red or green sprinkles.
- Place on baking sheet lined with parchment and bake for about 10 minutes.
- Remove from oven and allow to cool for a couple minutes.
- Press candy cane candy into the center of each cookie.
- Allow to cool a few more minutes, and then remove to a cookie rack to cool completely.
Enjoy these festive, cute and delicious cookies!
