Christmas Cookie Dishes – Gifts For That Special Someone

christmas cookie desserts

Christmas cookie recipes are one of my favorite gifts during the holidays. I have baked and supplied cookies to family, friends, and acquaintances for many years. They are usually a big hit at our gatherings. They are usually a little expensive, but they are well worth the price. In this article I will give you an idea of what you should look for when buying Christmas cookies.

First Of All

You should choose your recipe based on the size of your cookie cutter. I usually use a 9 inch square pan for small cookies, and a rectangle pan for larger ones. This is just a rule of thumb, but it can vary depending on the manufacturer. You don’t want a cookie cutter that is too long or too wide. It can be hard to make a good picture when the cookies are too thick.

Choose your flavors. I usually have a basic vanilla flavor and a dark chocolate flavor. If you choose a dark chocolate cookie, it should be at least 70% cocoa. Dark chocolate tends to have a stronger aroma. Try to use a high quality chocolate if you have to choose a generic brand.


Choose a simple recipe. There is no need for complicated flour blend, sugar blend, and yeast. Just choose a simple recipe that you can create by following directions. Many cookie recipes will already be done for you, so you don’t have to go crazy finding them.


If you are making large batches of cookies, you might want to consider freezing them instead of shipping them. Freezing them will keep them fresh for a few months. Also, your cookies will stay fresher for longer if you don’t open them immediately after they are baked. After baking, let the cookies sit at room temperature for a minimum of four hours. Don’t open them until the first morning.


You may consider making Christmas cookies just as you would any other cookie. Use your own mix, don’t use store bought mix. Just use natural vanilla flavor. Follow the directions on your mix, but just try not to over bake. Add cranberries or raisins for a little extra sweetness.

When you’re done, let the cookies cool on a wire rack before you wrap them individually in foil. They will be easier to gift because they won’t look like they’re covered in frosting. Wrap each individual cookie individually with plastic wrap or aluminum foil. You can also add a few chocolate chips and red and green icing to the ends for a unique look. This will give them a festive look and smell, just like a holiday treat!

In The End

They make healthy, homemade gifts that will be cherished for many years to come. Just be sure that you take the time to find original, creative cookie recipes. It’s always best when people have their own ideas when it comes to cooking.

Also, think about what kind of food will go well with your cookies. If you’re giving them as gifts, then your choices are pretty limited. But if you’re baking them yourself, consider the food you’re baking separately from the cookies. For instance, a ham and cheese cookie recipe makes a wonderful addition to Christmas cookies. A fruit-flavored icing works well for Christmas cupcakes.

You can find a lot of Christmas cookie recipes online. Check out what websites have the best ingredients for your cookies. Some include shortening, butter, eggs and baking powder. Many other websites provide recipes that will let you put together your own special flavors. If you’re not sure how to make them, it can be a fun and educational project for your kids when you can see the finished product.

Christmas cookie desserts are a hit at any event during the holiday season. And they make great gifts for friends and family members. Baking them is also a creative way to spend time with your children. If you need some help in that department and want to try to combine your skills and interests, then I would highly recommend trying to create Christmas cookies.

They’re a whole lot of fun to bake, too. My daughter loves taking the cookies apart, which I find rather fascinating. Each time she does it, she makes a new, and very different, creation. As a result, I get a new collection of cookies to try out each year. And she still gets new and interesting flavors. Christmas cookie recipes are a great gift for anyone, but especially for children who love baking.
