To be completely honest with you guys I usually don’t make cookies from scratch anymore. Most of the time when Sean wants cookies I don’t have the time to make them from scratch because he requests them the day before he wants them… at like 5 p.m. So usually I make cookies out of those bags of mix, which you do have to add stuff to and still bake but it isn’t truly homemade.
The time of year that the cookies are homemade is of course Christmas! And I would like to share the 5 cookie recipes that we always use.
These are hands down Sean’s favorite cookies and it is his number one request for me to make when it is Christmas time.
The classic that basically everyone loves and I just follow the Nestle Toll House recipe on the back of the bag. You can’t go wrong with the classics.
Sean’s second most requested cookie at Christmas time! Snickerdoodles are an interesting cookie in my opinion because of the odd tanginess they have.
My grandmother made these every year and truthfully I don’t really like them that much but there are a family favorite.
Sean’s third choice is the basic peanut butter cookies. These classic cookies always turn out soft and perfect for dipping in milk.
I hope you give our favorite cookies a try and maybe link your favorites in the comments below.
