What’s a better way to celebrate the holiday season than with good food…..COOKIES that is!  My family loves spending time in the kitchen together baking all types of Christmas cookies. However, our top three choices are sugar cookies, peanut butter blossoms, and snicker doodles.

Sugar cookies are made with a super sweet, delicious dough. You can use a multitude of different cookies to make fun shapes!  Roll out the dough and make whatever shapes you have (stockings, angels, snowflakes, etc.). After baking, decorate the cookies using colored icing, sprinkles, and red hots!  Of course, my family tries to see whose iced cookie looks the best. A little friendly decorating competition is always fun!

Peanut butter blossoms are made with a dough that has a little bit of peanut butter in it. (You can get these recipes off of google anytime!)  Roll the dough into balls then roll them in sugar. After baking for a bit, pull them out of the oven and stick a Hershey’s kiss right in the middle of the cookies. Then, continue baking for a bit longer.  They are delicious and are probably eaten faster than any other cookies in the house!Chelsea Crockett - Snicker Doodles

Last, but not least, are snicker doodles!  These yummy cookies are rolled in cinnamon and sugar and baked to perfection. They have an ingredient called cream of tartar in them that makes the cookie crunchy on the outside but moist on the inside!  They’ll definitely make your mouth water.
