One Christmas tradition of mine is to bake cookies before Christmas, and so far this season I have not made any! So last night I asked Jacob (the boyfriend) what kind of cookies we should make, and he said Sugar Cookies! And so you have it, that is what we made today 🙂
Now I have never actually made sugar cookies before believe it or not. I have usually made snickerdoodle or ginger molasses cookies (my moms favourite) around this time of year. This is partially because whenever I would be baking, my dad would be like “there better not be any sugar in those”, so therefore it would be pretty hard to make sugar cookies!
So, with my dad not being here I could make them! haha love ya dad… mom would have let me! ❤
For once in my life too, I actually listened to the recipe and set the butter out on the counter to get to room temperature rather then just microwaving it haha which is what I normally do! We followed the instructions exactly and they came out great!
The recipe called for candy cane Hersey Kisses, but we couldn’t find any in all of the stores we tried! So we decided to pick out a few types of chocolate for the toppings and ended up going with Hersey Hugs, macaroons, and mini rolos!
While I was attempting to take some decent food photos, my boyfriend was drooling all over and frustrating me. He also likes to tell me how/where to take pictures so I got mad at him and then he finally laid down on the couch so I could finish my work. I am not very good with food pictures because I don’t take them very often but here are a few shots!
If you want the recipe for these cookies it will be linked here. I would highly recommend this recipe, because its delicious! We made a half batch of the sugar/vanilla cookies, which made 12 cookies, so definitely enough for the 2 of us with all the other sweets at this time of the year!
Have you baked any Christmas cookies yet, and if so what kind?! Or what is your favourite kind to bake and eat? Leave your cookie answers in the comments below! 🙂
Until next time,
