12 Days of Christmas Cookies

12 Days of Christmas Cookies

The Christmas holiday always seems to revolve around cookies. Would you say? I mean more than other holidays the Christmas cookie is an icon. However, with so many delicious cookies out there how can one decide on a single Christmas cookie recipe? We’ll you don’t have to! 

With just 12 days left to Christmas I decided to kick off my 12 days of Christmas cookies baking. Everyday from now until Christmas I’ll be baking a new set of Christmas cookies and sharing the recipe here on Akram’s Ideas

There are so many cookie recipes. Since I don’t usually bake cookies, so to decide what cookies would make my cookie list I decided to search Pinterst for some cookie ideas. I decided to bake the following 12 cookies: 

Chocolate Chip cookies
Lemon cookies
Pumpkin cookies
Holiday Cake mix Cookies (with kisses)
Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies
Apple Pie Cookies
Snicker Doodle
Red Velvet (raspberries) Cookies
Poinsettia Blossoms
 Hot Cocoa Cookies
Gingerbread Cookies
Christmas Sugar Cookies

I decided to start the list off with my “Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies” I wrote about not to long ago. Why, you ask? We’ll for one I love those cookies, I know the recipe in my sleep and I always have all the ingredients on hand, in case I just get the urge to bake cookies.

I quickly whipped up a batch using my trusty Kitchen Aid.

As usual the cookies came out just right! Moist, chewy and chocolatey.

Now your probably wondering with so many cookies, there is no way I could eat them all right? Right, so I’ve decided to make a cookie tin for friends and family to share these tasty cookies with me. I plan on putting a few of each cookie on the list in the tin along with the recipe and mailing it as a Christmas gift. I only hope that they survive the mail, and that they arrive in time for Christmas.

Okay so one cookie recipe down, eleven more to go. Wish me luck and stay tuned!
