{Christmas} Cookie Monster

{Image from weheartit.com}

It’s getting to be that time of year…A time when I put on my apron and turn up the Christmas jams. I am gearing up for my annual holiday baking and as I stockpile butter (seriously) and peruse recipes of tried and true classics I find myself gravitating toward trying new recipes. Two of my favorite food blogs, Brown Eyed Baker and Smitten Kitchen are providing me with endless and delicious inspiration. I love when traditional favorites are updated and made that much better, S’ mores stuffed chocolate chip cookie anyone? Here are some new cookie recipes I will be trying out this holiday season:

{Black and White Cookies}

{Lofthouse Style Frosted Sugar Cookies}

{Crisp Salted White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies}

{Monster Cookies}

{Espresso Chocolate Chip Shortbread}

{Salted Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies}

{Homemade Oreos}

{S’ mores Stuffed Chocolate Chip}

{Fig and Walnut Biscotti}


Do you bake for the holidays? Will you be baking old favorites or trying something new?

As you can see there is a definite pattern here with my cookie recipes. I love chocolate and sweets with a salty finish. If you haven’t yet tried chocolate and salt, this chocolate bar is a nice introduction gateway drug.

    Omg. These pictures are both amazing and delightful, yet haunting and evil all at once. What can I say, I’m a diabetic with a serious sweet tooth. All joking aside, these are incredibly inspirational! I have to figure out how to make those salted oatmeal cookies…with a reduction in the sugar content. Totally doable, right?
