Scrumptious, crumbly, and oh so delicious cookies to indulge in
Awwww yesssss, it’s that time of the year again!
Where the jingle bells go ringin’ and Mariah Carey’s ‘All I want For Christmas is You’ plays on unabashed loops in malls all over.
The anticipation is growing with each day and it’s probably about now that you start ticking off your Christmas checklist.
Christmas playlist? Done!
Christmas tree? Done!
Christmas gifts? Done!
What else is there? Christmas cookies of course! Never, ever forget to leave the cookies out for Santa or you won’t be getting any nice presents! (or so they tell us anyway). Well, regardless of whether it’s for a chubby old man in a red suit or just a sweet treat, Christmas cookies will only add to the joy of the season.
So, if you’re browsing for Christmas cookie recipes, here are a few that’ll get the festivities up and running.
I’m sure you’re familiar with the iconic Gingerbread cookies. Maybe not so much with their taste, but certainly with how they look. The most important tool in this recipe is the gingerbread cookie cutter. The icing will add a colourful touch and sweetness to the cookie, but just the gingerbread man by itself is enough to roll out the Christmas parade.
Fudgey Brownie Cookies
Every celebration is an excuse to make chocolate cookies, and Christmas is no different. This Fudgey Brownie Cookie recipe is loaded with soft dark chocolate filling, coated with a crusty shell to give it a crunchy indulgence. For a lil’ something extra, dash on some flaked salt for a slight tinge of flavour. It’s the joys of Christmas captured in a bite.
Triple Chocolate Cookies
Good things come in pairs, but great chocolate cookies come in trios. This triple chocolate cookie recipe can attest to that. Sure, you’re likely to have an euphoric sugar rush and a chance of diabetes later, but it’s oh so worth it. Best part is, this recipe teaches you how to store the cookie dough to save it when the cravings kick in.
Linzer cookies are a Christmas classic. They’re similar to Hari Raya’s Biskut Thumbprint with the jam filling as a sweet centre. This recipe uses a heart-shaped cutter to spruce the cookie a little, but we say as long as it tastes delicious the shape won’t matter. It’s the inside that counts anyway, right? Just fill it with plenty of jam and you’re good to go.
Snowball Almond Cookies
Unfortunately in Malaysia, we can’t merrily sing ‘Let It Snow’ while jumping amidst a rain of winter flakes. While that’s still an elusive dream of ours, we’ll just have to make do with these Snowball Almond Cookies. Honestly, we’re not complaining. They may look like mochi because of the powdery ‘snow’ glaze, but they’re not gooey at all. Instead, the buttery, crumbly texture of the cookie will provide a rich taste as big as your Christmas gift card. It’s a reminder that although the absence of snow is unfortunate, it’s still the most wonderful time of the year.
