Christmas Cookie Box

Throughout the year I baked a lot... I baked when I was sad, baked when I was happy, baked because it was a Tuesday, and baked to perfect my craft. So for our Christmas presents this year I decided that baking would be a heartfelt gift! 

It all started with a list of cookies I wanted to add to my box...

Christmas Cookies Box:


2.sugar cookie


4.crinkle cookies

5.chocolate peppermint cookies


7.linzer cookies 


Then I took to the internet to find the best rated and most used recipes. Being that it was my first time making some of these recipes I wanted to make sure I had it down the first try. 

Starting with the Baklava:

a dessert originating in the Middle East made of phyllo pastry filled with chopped nuts and soaked in honey.

We used this recipe from fifteen spatulas  and out of all desserts this is the one I was a little afraid of trying. It’s probably because we eaten so many delicious versions over the years and thinking that it would so hard to replicate. If I’m honest with you, it turned out just like the ones from the restaurants! PS: you do have to wait 8 hours before you can eat but totally worth it!

Then I made an assortment of cookies for the boxes.after making the dough for each cookie I added the gingerbread, molasses, and the sugar cookie to the freezer to set because I feel like it keeps it’s shape better when you let it cool. 

Chocolate crinkle cookies

Molasses rolled in sugar

Chocolate peppermint dipped in white chocolate 

The gingerbread recipe I think is probably one of my favorites and I’m not a gingerbread fan. So that’s saying a lot! I found it on YouTube from the channel “stay at home chef” Rachel is awesome and so is her recipe!

My favorite part of baking all these treats was seeing
how excited my family was over these! Their happy faces while eating them brought me so much joy. I loved how they said it was delicious. It is now going to become a Christmas tradition and I hope that for 2021 my cookie game is even better! 

Do you have a Christmas tradition?
