2nd Day of Cookies – Macarons

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?

5th Day Christmas Cookie – Glazed Apple Oat Cookies

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.

9th Day Cookie – Chocolate Covered Minty Cookies

Drumroll please…Hello second day of the “copycat girl scout” series! It is 9 days before Christmas and these sweet treats were the perfect fill for a Monday night. Especially after a late Monday work night. The key is planning with this Christmas cookie tradition. I knew today would be a late one so the dough was made before work and chilled until I was able to be off work. Then it was as simple as slicing and throwing in the oven! Slice and bakes are perfect for busy days, well as long as the dough is made the night before or morning of. While making these (and tasting these), next time I would make sure to cut closer to 1/8 inch slices for a true Thinmint copycat. I’d love to hear what your favorite girl scout cookie is in the comments below!
