The Sweet Life! with Christine Kropp; The Perfect Christmas Cookie for your Cookie Exchange

The Perfect Christmas Cookie

Does the thought of baking Christmas cookies leave you in a sugar rush? Do you make the same cookies each year, following family traditions or try a new recipe featured in one of the pretty holiday magazines?

I love hosting a cookie exchange with friends. It is the perfect way to spend one afternoon

baking your favourite cookie recipe, and finish with a freezer filled with dozens of cookies in a variety of flavours.

Where does one start in choosing a cookie recipe to share with friends. Something quick and

easy, like a drop cookie or maybe a refrigerated cookie that can be sliced and baked. A bar

cookie that is pressed into a pan and cut into squares. Maybe a pressed cookie, that one time a year that you can dust off your cookie press.

One of my favourite cookie recipes is the classic sugar cookie. Truth – I have accumulated quite a few cookie cutters over the years. Christmas cookies are a wonderful way to use a variety of these cookie cutters in shapes and sizes. These cookies can then be decorated with a simple line of royal icing or full on sprinkles.

 When making cookies, don’t overmix the dough, mix in the flour only until incorporated

 Silicone Baking mats are excellent for even colour cookies, and easy clean up
