Christmas Cookies

I had a bit of a thing this weekend. Like.. a cookie-type-thing. 

Basically, today, for nearly no good reason, I made three batches of cookies. I mean, it’s Christmas guys, I’m not feeling too bad about the whole thing actually. 


Plus, I’ve got a whole office of cookie-eaters to bring these too, so I won’t be eating them all myself. I mean don’t get me wrong, I work in this office too, so I’m definitely a part of the cookie eating crew. And there will likely be extras at home. You know what, let’s not even talk about it anymore. 


I made a batch of these cake batter cookies from Sally’s Baking Addiction, and they are too easy. Like seriously, it’s dangerously easy. I added 1/4 cup flour to the recipe just because I’m at a higher altitude, and these turned out perfect. They’re sweet, soft, and super flavorful guys- I really recommend these. 


Next, I whipped up a batch of snickerdoodles, which you can find the recipe for below. These are basically just sugar cookies that are rolled in cinnamon and sugar before baking, and I actually put a bit of cinnamon into the cookie dough as well for good measure. 


Last, we’ve got Classic Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies, recipe linked here. Basically, I took my classic recipe for these babies and just scooped out smaller cookies to match my other batches. This recipe also has a touch of cinnamon, just for that added warmth and sweetness. Basically, if you’re looking for an awesome chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe, this is my go-to!


Let’s all just skip work and regular life stuff this week for cookies, amiright? Enjoy!
