Is there anything happier than a platter of Christmas cookies? These are an assortment of my families favorites and so many happy memories!
Chocolate Chip Cookies are my son’s favorite and if I do say so, they are the BEST!
Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
¾ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking powder
2 cups ground oatmeal (grind old fashioned oatmeal in a food processor or blender)
3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips preferably Ghirardelli’s
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs one at a time. Mix flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder in a separate bowl. Add gradually to sugar mixture. Add ground oatmeal slowly until fully incorporated. Mix in chocolate chips, drop by spoonfuls and bake on greased cookie sheet for 10-12 minutes.
Christmas Tree Cookies are a tradition and Brooke and I usually make them together.
Magic Cookie Bars are my Mom’s favorite and we make them every year!
And last but not least, Snowball Cookies are irresistible!
