Since I have SO much content this week, I need more than my usual three blog posts. Yay!!!
This weekend, my friend Anna and I are hosting our 4th Annual Cookie Exchange. Our girlfriends look forward to this party every year, and this year no exception. We’re doing a brunch along with it, so I’m sure it will a huge hit.
In honor of this trusty tradition, I thought it was best to share three of my absolute favorite cookie recipes with you. I may or may not make one of these for the exchange this weekend. It will be a surprise 🙂
Sugar Cookies – I have searched far and wide for a sugar cookie recipe that not only is easy to work with, but also tastes amazing. Look no further, friends… (PS-Happy Hanukkah)
Spritz Cookies. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I have had a bit of a debacle with my cookie press this past week. Long story long, I broke my trusty cookie press last Thursday (the spring broke). Then, I went to Target to get a new one. That one was designed by an idiot and the gap between the cookie press and the cookie sheet was way too big.. Then I got one at Sur La Table and that didn’t work either. SO, I have a new one coming from Amazon tomorrow. If this doesn’t work, I might quit life. So frustrating.
Gingerbread Cookies– My dear colleague gave me the recipe for “Double Ginger” Cookies last year, and I thought I’d modify them to make gingergread men and, guess what? It worked! Yay! These little dudes are SO good. The spice in them is the perfect amount. Yummmm.
Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and molasses and blend well. Sift dry ingredients together. Add half of dry mixture to creamed mixture and blend with a mixer. Add remaining half and blend by hand. Chill dough for several hours.
