Cookies: The 12 Days of Holiday Food Gifts


No Comments
A note from Maggie

I have a million reasons to be excited this December:

  1. It’s my very favorite time of the year.
  2. It’s is the last precious month of 2015 — the year I wrote my very first cookbook.
  3. I’m throwing a long, festive, chock-full-of-food-gifts Holiday Market.

As if that isn’t enough, I’m also thrilled to announce Eat Boutique’s 12 Days of Holiday Food Gifts: 12 days of gorgeous, edible presents that no one (least of all me) could resist. From cookies to pickles to candy to baked goods, we’ve rounded up all these recipes, courtesy of some seriously amazing writers and bloggers. Enjoy and happy holidays!

Baking cookies is my absolute favorite part of the holiday season. In my house, there are a few cookies that appear every year: soft pecan balls coated in powdered sugar, extravagantly-decorated gingerbread men, and almond crescent cookies topped with meringue. My sister and I used to spend hours at the kitchen counter, surrounded by a cloud of sprinkles, decorating sugar and frosting, making sure each cookie was adorned with festive cheer. {lead image from Food Gift Love}

The best part about holiday cookies? There’s no limit to how many you’re allowed to eat. We’ve scoured the web for the newest additions to your Christmas cookie canon, from classics like Linzer Cookies to updated favorites like Almond Rosemary and White Chocolate Chip! Come back tomorrow for Day 2 of Holiday Food Gifts, which is all about jam!

Linzer Cookies: Ruby red jam, a fine dusting of powdered sugar, and the warm crunch of hazelnuts. In other words, the quintessential winter cookie. {from O & O Eats}

Chai Palmiers: A little puff pastry, cinnamon, and butter go a long way. {from Eat Boutique}

Iced Chocolate Peppermint Cookies: The name of these cookies alone makes us want to bundle up and go skating with candy canes in hand. {from Baking A Moment}

Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies: A twist on the classic, these dark cookies look gorgeous decorated with a simple royal frosting. {from A Modern Wifestyle}

Mandarin Orange Tea Cookies: The sweetest (and most beautiful) way to get your daily dose of vitamin C. {from Seasons & Suppers}

Rosemary Almond White Chocolate Cookies: Rosemary browned butter in a chocolate chip cookie? Here’s to new holiday traditions! {from Two Red Bowls}

Eat Boutique Holiday Market: Not a cookie, but a real treat! Visit us for food gifts galore.
