Alright you little poops, here is a Christmas recipe even my 8 year old sister can handle. Prepare for my favorite Christmas cookie recipe.
WARNING: DO NOT MAKE IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE ADDICTED
- A bag of pretzels (normal twisted ones for beginners, circles for advanced cookie making)
- Hershey Kisses (plain chocolate preferable for beginners)
- A bag of M&Ms
Alright this recipe is super easy for beginners. Here we go:
1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit/135 Celsius.
2. While oven is heating, put wax paper on a cookie sheet or two (you may want to make as many as possible as these are incredibly addicting and will be eaten in .2 seconds. We made 4 sheets yesterday and they’re already running out.)
3. Spread pretzels out on cookie sheets. Then place 1 Hershey’s kiss on each.
4. Stick these in the oven for 3 minutes. Take out and place 1 M&M on each, being sure to smash down the chocolate to cover as much pretzel area as possible. (This step is best done as quickly as possible since the chocolate will only continue to be melt-y for a short time.)
5. Let cool/harden and enjoy.
After practice you can try adding some variety to the mix:
We’ve discovered that if you use other flavors of chocolate, these generally melt much faster and are much messier. We put these into the cirlces and when they were melted we made sure that the chocolate touched all sides of the round pretzels, making a much more difficult, but much more pretty cookie.
The circle pretzels are recommeded only for people who are practiced as sometimes the chocolate will fall through the pretzel or get stuck to the wax paper. However, mastery of the meltiest chocolate and the circle pretzels yields cute looking rewards.
Now, fly my children! Go and make super easier cookies and get quickly addicted!
On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me Christmas Sugar Cookies! ‘Bout time! While the recipes require plenty of time and love, we think it’s well worth it to spend a few hours decorating them with family.
The first Christmas cookies in the US were brought in by the Dutch in the 17th century. Because of new importation laws between Germany and the US, cookie cutters became available between 1871 and 1906. They were often in the shape of Christmas ornaments, and soon recipe books were teaching bakers how to use the baking tool to create this holiday treat.
What you’ll need:
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg, beaten
- Powdered sugar for rolling out dough
