The holidays are in full swing and baking has been the last thing on my mind. Thankfully Pinterest is here for me when I need ideas in a flash. I rounded up some quick and easy Christmas treats I’ll be baking this weekend to fill tins to deliver to family and friends.
Christmas Treats for Giving or Eating
Rum balls are easy, pretty and delicious. The perfect little bites of boozy goodness that are off limits to the kids, so you will always have a stash. They’re my Dad’s favorite and this recipe from Alexandra’s Kitchen is on my list of must-have’s this holiday season.
Peanut butter cookies are always super easy. Sweetopia has a cut-out version of peanut butter cookies that will tempt your taste buds and make easy work in the kitchen this Christmas.
Cookies from a cake mix are super easy. Sally’s Baking Addiction Confetti Cake Batter Cookies are exploding with green, red, and white sprinkles. These cookies are perfect for this Christmas holiday.
White Chocolate Peppermint Fudge – a decadent, but easy, fudge recipe perfect for the season.
Chocolate sugar cookies will give me a needed chocolate fix in snowman form. I’ll add silver and gold sprinkles to create festive cookies for everyone on my delivery list.
It’s a well known fact that sour cream sugar cookies melt in your mouth and taste even better when coated in sprinkles and dunked in milk.
I’m not much of one to decorate for Christmas, but I’ll be trying my hand with this handy how-to guide from The Kitchn. Will these be Instgram worthy cookies? Only if you’re looking for tasty laughs.
