Some Sweet Holiday Goodness

I have been super busy the past few weeks, but I do want to start some Holiday baking. I pulled out the family recipe book, and flipped through it. My aunt has the best frosted sugar cookie recipe, but there are a ton of steps. I really don't have the prep time to make those. They are soo good that my mom usually gives my aunt some money and asks her to make us a few dozen.

I do want to try some different recipes this year. I've been searching all over the interwebz for some great ideas. I wanted to share what I've found.

These are from the Pillsbury website. You just you refrigerated sugar cookies, and some other small ingredients. Very cute! I'm sure you could make all kinds of designs with the right colored frosting.

Festive Candy Cane Kiss Centered Brownie Bites

I saw these on Picky Palate the other day. They immediately made my mouth water. You can't tell from this picture, but there are Candy Cane Hershey's Kisses in the middle of these brownies. I picked up two bags of the Hershey's Kisses last night in preparation for these delightful treats. I love everything on Picky Palate's blog. Now only if I had the time to bake/cook more.

Christmas Candy Cane Cookies

I found this recipe on the Betty Crocker website. The ingredients are quite simple also: sugar cookie mix, butter, an egg, and food coloring.

Oreo Cookie Snowmen

My friend, Kelly, made these. They are soo simple and there's NO BAKING involved. How cool is that? All you need is White Fudge Covered Oreos, M&M's, and some gel frosting.


  1. Those Santa Cookies are too stinkin cute! My mouth is sooo watering over the brownie kiss cookies! I am sooo adding this to my baking list this year! Thanks so much for sharing
    Summer :0)

  2. I have a cookie exchange on Monday at work and I was literally just on the Pilsbury website and saw those before I found your blog. They look yummy!

  3. I've been baking too! Mint fudge, banana/chocolate bread, strawberry bread, candied pecans. Yummmmm is the name of the season, no?

  4. Thanks for all the great and easy baking ideas. I was thinking the same thing. I want to bake lots of fun Christmas cookies, but I just don't want to spend all the time. Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. Those Santa cookies and snowman oreos are adorable!


Thank You for taking the time to comment on my blog. I really appreciate it. At least I know that someone in my life actually agrees with me.
