Easy Christmas Cookies

I’m not sure what bug bit me this holiday season, but I am baking more this year than ever before! Yesterday the kids and I were in the mood for some cookies, but I wasn’t in the mood to go to the store, so we were limited in making something that we already had the ingredients for.

I needed something easy, but something the kids could have fun with. These Christmas blossom cookies were perfect.  They look fancy, but they are simple, festive and they are delicious!  They only take minutes to prepare so they’ll be ready to serve in no time!

How To Make Christmas Blossoms

Dough – The first thing you’ll need to make is the sugar cookie dough.  You can make your own dough, or buy some store-bought dough (no judging here!) If using store-bought, I prefer using the Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix that comes in a bag – it just tastes the best to me. If you’re looking for a homemade version, here is my  favorite homemade Sugar Cookies.

Decorate Them – Next, roll your sugar cookie dough into festive sprinkles or colored sugars to give your blossoms their Christmas look.

Bring The Heat – Bake the Christmas cookie blossoms according to cookie dough package or the recipe’s directions.

Hershey’s Kiss – As soon as you pull them out of the oven, add a Hershey’s kiss to the center of each cookie. You can use regular chocolate Kisses or the white chocolate Hugs.  You can also get even more festive and use some of the holiday flavors that are in stores this time of year. If you need a recommendation, the peppermint ones are delicious!

Serve – These Christmas blossom cookies are perfect to enjoy with a mug of Gingerbread Hot Chocolate.  They are so easy, you can make a batch for a Holiday Cookie Exchange or neighbor gifts.
