Thank you for following us for these last twelve days as we made these cookies and upheld a cherished tradition between my mom and I. There are some traditions that make your heart feel so happy and full. Laughing at our silly inside jokes, singing Christmas carols, and talking to my mom in the kitchen during these 12 days of cookies does just that for me. With a very thankful and full heart (and stomach with all these cookies), I’m excited to wish everyone reading this a very Merry Christmas!Continue reading “Final Day of Christmas Cookie Countdown 2019 – Caramel Coconut Bars”
We have made what feels like thousands of different cookies over the years but surprisingly, we have not tried making the classic Macaron. What better time than two days before Christmas and on a day off work! These cute little treats are going to be used for a Christmas get together with both my boyfriend and mine families tonight. Have you make macarons before? What is your favorite flavor?Continue reading “2nd Day of Cookies – Macarons”
I love the anticipation leading up to Christmas. I love all of the traditions, events, decorations, and most of all; seeing my family and friends. It passes by so quickly that I can’t believe that we are only THREE days away from Christmas already! These clementine spritz cookies are great because they make up a lot of cookies! They are used for both neighbor gifts and a perfect filler on a Christmas cookie tray for parties. If you make these and think the icing isn’t important, just as a warning, I one hundred percent think that the part of this cookie with the most clementine flavor was the icing.Continue reading “3rd Day of Cookies – Clementine Spritz”
We have 4 days until Christmas and I am really excited to be sharing this cookie next! What I love about it is that it is a twist on the classic chocolate chip cookie with the addition of the chopped Rolo candies. Plus, it is a simple drop cookie so no chill or roll time is needed! When it comes to drop cookies, the best tool invented is the cookie scooper. It is similar to an ice cream scoop but it has a piece of metal that moves to drop the dough out of the scoop and onto the baking sheet. If you don’t have one yet, I would highly recommend getting one. Our cookie scoop size is 1 ½ Tablespoons we use it for almost every cookie we make.Continue reading “4th Day Christmas Cookie – Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookie”
This apple spiced cookie is reminiscent of the flavors you would find in an apple pie; so warm and cozy. It’s perfect for a cold winter night, especially when that winter night is only 5 days away from Christmas! As of today, I have officially finished all of my Christmas shopping. Now all I need to do is wrap the gifts. I enjoy wrapping gifts at this time of year though. Wrapping gifts is almost therapeutic for me around Christmas. A fun Christmas movie on and a big cup of hot coffee while I wrap makes for a relaxing night. How do you feel about wrapping?Continue reading “5th Day Christmas Cookie – Glazed Apple Oat Cookies”
Is there anything better than stuffing a cookie with caramel?? This one immediately caught our eye with the stuffed caramel (again, YUM), and also the crystallized ginger in it. This is our gingerbread cookie for the year so I was especially excited that the crystallized ginger made the flavor pop in the best way. There are only 6 days until Christmas and we are halfway through our 12 days of cookies! Comment below with what cookie you have been the most excited about so far!

We have had a few different flavors this 12 days of cookies so far. I’m sure you’ve noticed A LOT of them are going to have chocolate in them, #notsorry! 😉 This is the first citrus cookie of this year’s 12 days of cookie tradition. There is a pick between different citrus fruits or you can combine if you are daring. We went with orange because it is our favorite citrus flavor and it reminds us of the Christmas season. Since I was little my dad would always bring home a case of oranges during Christmastime. He got the tradition from his dad.
Excuse me while I go eat a whole bunch of these coin size treats. Comment below with which citrus fruit you would try this recipe with!Continue reading “7th Day Cookie – Citrus Meltaways”
