Important holiday discussion here people. I’m counting down my top 5 favorite Christmas cookies. Eating far too many calories right now but then I’ll have 4 months or so to lose some pounds before DryFins season.
#5 Magic Cookie Bars. Coconut, chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk on a graham cracker crust. My wife cuts them into small bars which allows me to justify eating several every time I open the box.
#4 Deli Christmas Cookies. My wife is going to kill me for not making all 5 things she or my daughter makes, but I love the small cookie potpourri our local deli sells. They don’t bake them there. They come from some large Italian baking company but I can eat an embarrassing amount of them.
#3 Iced Sugar Cookie. I grew up with wafer thin ones but my wife’s family recipe has them a bit thicker. I feel like the mitten cutout is just the right size to allow the correct ratio of icing to cookie.
#2 Spritz. A simple cookie that is as much a part of my childhood as watching Hermie talking about the joys of dentistry.
#1 Chocolate Covered Peanuts. Not a cookie but it’s made at the same time as all the cookies and it sits in a tin just like they do. I could eat ten hundred of these in one sitting.
That’s it. The big holiday countdown. I hope you have a fantastic Christmas. I am off to binge watch the original Miracle on 34th Street and White Christmas.
