This is somewhat of a mega recipe in that it makes an entire box of Christmas cookies in a variety of flavours. But the best thing about it is that it all comes from one cookie base recipe! Seriously, all of the biscuits above came from one cookie dough. You have to try it to believe it!
I really hope you'll give these pecan Linzer biscuits a try at least once. They're one of my favourite cookies ever and the pecan adds so much flavour to the classic Linzer cookie!
These peanut butter refrigerator cookies are simpleness personified and are made on the stovetop and then set or "baked" in the fridge. These are for when you don't want to turn on the oven or don't want to spend more than 10 minutes making cookies!
These festive looking cookies are actually chocolate choc chip cookies with a blanket of snow or icing sugar on top! Rudolph is apparently a bit of a fan ;)
Savoury lovers these cheese biscuits are one of the easiest to make yet are ridiculously tasty. There's a classic cheddar biscuit but then there's also a blue cheese, cranberry and pistachio biscuit. And you won't be able to just stop at one (just a little warning!).
So tell me Dear Reader, do you have a favourite cookie type? Have you tried any of these cookies?
