One thing you can always count on during this time of year is lots of cookies and candy. That’s probably also why most people tend to gain a few pounds around the holidays. Good thing the temperatures also get colder, so we can dress in layers to cover that up!
With the colder temperatures, I think now is a great time to start baking cookies. Not only does it help keep the house warm, but on days when the temperatures will barely make it above freezing, I have absolutely no desire to go outside anyhow.
I always like to make several different kinds of cookies during this time of year, so there’s something for everyone. I make a few of our favorites that I know will be expected, and then I like to try at least a couple new recipes.
I never have to worry about making too many cookies with our bunch, but if I would somehow make even more than they could keep up with, cookies always make a nice gift. I could always take a variety of them to a family gathering or bring a few to a friend.
This recipe is one of my favorites from Pampered Chef. It’s super easy to make and only requires a handful of ingredients that I typically have on hand. The recipe is for a very small batch (only 6-8 cookies depending on size). It’s great for those who want to make a small batch of cookies for themselves, but when I make it, I always make several batches to make sure we have a bunch. Enjoy!
