Planning for Christmas Baking

Via Twitter, Facebook and FriendFeed, several of you provided suggestions for my Christmas Cookie baking list. So far, the most intriguing recommendations have been Romance Cookies¬†and Midnight Cookies. The kids want Peanut Butter Blossoms — you know, the peanut butter cookies with the Hershey’s kisses in the middle — and of course I’ll make some sugar cookies, too. For the sugar cookies, this year I’m going to try reliable old Alton Brown’s recipe and decorate with Royal Icing.

If I get really ambitious, I may whip up some macaroons, too.

I’m still taking suggestions! I will bake this weekend so leave your favorite cookie idea in the comments.

    We prefer the peanut butter cookies with mini Reese’s cups in the middle.

    I went the bar cookie route, and experimented with my sugar cookies … http://www.ammusings.com. I’m very pleased with they way things turned out – the chocolate chips are to die for! I’m going to post an easy candy-mix recipe today if that interests you.

    The aunts made those fabulous cookies, kind of a sandwich cookie called Cream Wafers…melt in your mouth great …I have the recipe around if you get in the mood…Since I am one of the aunts now I guess I should be baking and mailing them out…not!

    Have you ever tried peppermint snowballs? I got the recipe at bettycrocker.com after misplacing mine–you make them with crushed candy canes or peppermint candies. I also tried a new cranberry and white chocolate cookie this year that you make with craisins and white chocolate chips–mmm. Have fun!

    My granny would make wreaths made out of corn flakes (made like rice crispy treats) add a little green food coloring, form small wreaths and then and 2-3 red hots for decoration. They are really good and are very festive.
