First and foremost… Happy Holidays from my family and I, to you and yours!
Noche Buena is always a wonderful evening for my family. We are quite happy to be surrounded by the most special of our loved ones… Christmas Day is near and I am sharing a couple of top cookie recipes with you!
If you are hosting Christmas Dinner this year, surprise your guests with a special treat and replicate one of these recipes. Whether it’s an adult cocktail party or family event with the kiddos- we promise your guests will love them!
Consider making savory cookies to pair with a signature cocktail for the adults, or choosing a quick recipe to make with the kids in the kitchen and have them bake after dinner while they open presents. Below are our favorites! Can you imagine the delicious smell of fresh baked cookies through out your home?! Yum!
Rum- Glazed Sugar Cookies
In a smaller bowl, stir 2 tablespoons of the milk, the rum and powdered sugar into a smooth texture. Add additional milk 1 tsp at a time to desired consistency. Drizzle over cookies. Let stand until glaze is almost set; sprinkle with coarse sugar.
The following are not cookies, but they had to be shared! Indulge!
Peanut Butter Balls
2 Sticks of Butter or Margarine (soften)
2 – 18 oz jars of Peanut Butter
2 lbs of Confectionary Sugar
2 pkgs of chocolate chip morsels
Mix Butter, Peanut Butter, and Confectionary Sugar together until all blended. Then roll into little balls. Melt chocolate chip morsels in double boiler. Dip peanut butter balls into chocolate, place on cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil, refrigerate for 1 hour. – Amy Smith, wife & mother of 3, Chicago, Illinois. Thank you, Amy!
