A cookie a day
Our favorite Christmas tradition
Whether you're making cookies to give, swap or just enjoy all season long, we know you'll be baking your favorites. Because what better time to cook up dozen after dozen than Christmastime?
As we were getting our supplies together this year, we put together this amazing list of the cookies we just can't live without. Naturally, we thought to share them with you. You might want to consider doubling your batches, especially if you want some leftover for Santa...these will go fast.
Chocolate-Orange Snowballs: Just like the snowballs outside...except a lot tastier. These poppable no-bake treats from our cookbook 101 Cupcakes, Cookies & Brownies are sure to go fast. Plus, with only six ingredients that you're sure to have on hand, they're a snap to toss together. See the recipe below.
9-oz. pkg. vanilla wafers
2-1/4 c. powdered sugar, divided
1/4 c. baking cocoa
1/4 c. light corn syrup
1/3 c. frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
1-1/2 c. chopped pecans
In a food processor, combine vanilla wafers, 2 cups powdered sugar, cocoa, corn syrup and orange juice. Process until wafers are finely ground and mixture is well blended. Add pecans and process until nuts are finely chopped. Transfer mixture to a bowl; form into one-inch balls. Roll in remaining powdered sugar. Store in an airtight container. Makes about 5 dozen.
