Deciding what to bring to that special holiday party — whether it’s your work Christmas bonanza or a little get-together at your in-laws’ — can be a challenge. You want to impress the other guests with your creative and scrumptious dish, but do you really want to put in all that effort? The staff at Avery Greene Honda has the solution: this quick list of tasty, easy-to-bake Christmas cookies.
Chocolate Peppermint Crackle Cookies
These are perfectly holiday-theme, and they both look and taste way more complex than they actually are to make. The only extra step you need to consider is chilling the dough overnight; other than that, these cookies will be done in 15 minutes flat!
All you need to make these adorable and delicious cookies is sugar cookie dough, a star-shaped cookie cutter, and your favorite berry jam. Bake the sugar cookies in star shapes and, when they’re done and cooled, put a dollop of berry jam on top of half the batch. Then, place another cookie on top, with the points of the top star in between the points of the bottom. They become the perfect little snowflakes!
Whether these are a candy or a cookie is still up for debate, but what can’t be denied is that these peanut-butter-and-chocolate treats are absolutely addictive. Just whip some store-bought peanut butter together with powdered sugar, melted butter, and a dash of vanilla, then freeze. While it’s freezing, melt some chocolate chips in a pot on the oven. Roll the peanut butter into balls, dip them into the melted chocolate with a toothpick, and you have yourself a buckeye!
From our family at Avery Greene Honda to you and yours: Have a most Merry Christmas and the happiest of holidays.
