Christmas Cookies 2013

I thought I had it all under control this year, but I’m way behind!  So just like last year’s Christmas post, I have no time to write a story.

Now that I think about it, part of this post will be like deja vu, because I tend to make the same cookies each year (with a few different ones, don’t worry).

So, if you didn’t read last year’s post, then you’re fine.

If you did, just act surprised!

Here are the Chocolate Spritz Cookies- with glaze, without glaze, and half-glazed!!

I made chocolate-dipped pretzel crisps to switch it up a little.  Yum!

Here are my gingerbread men this year:

And the Christmas party mix I make for the teachers (I had to make extra because I couldn’t stop sampling.  You know, to make sure it wasn’t getting stale… every few minutes…)

See the tiny marshmallows? I dipped them in chocolate and sprinkles myself!

The low fat Chocolate Chip Biscotti is one of my favorites.  This year I dipped the bottoms in chocolate (yes, this was exciting for me):

My really messy 7-layer cookies.  I blame it on my new oven, of course.  🙂

I also made very buttery thumbprint cookies:

And now for the ones that are basically the same as usual:

My favorite– Christmas trees!!  I LOVE these- I think it’s the cutest cookie cutter.

Three sizes of snowflakes:

Snowflake Cookies- small a


Snowflake Cookies- medium 2a


Snowflake Cookies- large a


I always make Almond Biscotti because, well, it’s probably the only Christmas cookie my husband likes.  

I know, it’s insane.

And finally, the M&M and Oreo Bark:

And I still have to make 2 more, but it won’t happen any time soon, so I’ll have to post them later!

Happy Holidays!!

  1. It all looks so delicious! Beautifully done, as always 🙂

  2. recipe for party mix? pretty please? Cookies all look great, Ger!

    • Thanks, Liz! Party mix is sooo easy! I took 1 C Wheat Chex and 1 C Rice Chex, 3 C pretzels, and 1/2 C craisins and mixed with melted white chocolate. Let it dry and then mix in M&Ms and mini marshmallows (I dipped them in green chocolate and covered in sprinkles). And that’s it!! Yum! (I was in a hurry and the chocolate didn’t cooperate– otherwise it should look much prettier.) 🙂

  3. Wow those are stunning!
