The holidays are meant to be enjoyed with family and friends and shouldn’t be spent stressing out over baking the perfect cookie or dessert. Whether it’s spreading cheer at a cookie exchange or decorating treats for Santa, our favorite cookie recipes and easy baking hacks will help you bake the best batch of cookies, every time
- Meringues are light, airy and perfect for Christmas. They take time, but the results will make your dessert table sparkle! To make sure your meringues stay fluffy, add a small amount of an acidic ingredient like lemon juice, cream of tartar, or vinegar to act as a stabilizer. Don’t forget, eggs are easiest to separate when cold, but whites reach their fullest volume when whipped at room temperature. Try our Peppermint Meringue Kisses for your next party!
- Chocolate Chip Cookies are a classic for any occasion. After creaming butter and sugar, eggs should be added one at a time. Thoroughly beating before the next egg is added helps the mixture retain more trapped air bubbles, which can help you avoid a flat cookie. Whip up these Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies this weekend!
- Sugar Cookie Cut Outs are the ultimate holiday activity. Not only do we love making the dough, we love decorating cookies with the entire family! The key to keeping the cookies’ shape is to refrigerate the cut outs before baking. Build your own snowman using our Sugar Cookie Cut-Out recipe!
