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 – nothing fancy, but they are simple, they are festive and they are delicious!

You can make your own sugar cookie 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.

Blossom cookies are actually really easy to make. First, prepare your dough. Then, roll your dough into festive sprinkles or colored sugars. Bake according to package or recipe directions.

As soon as you pull them out of the oven, add a candy kiss to the center. You can use regular chocolate Kisses or the white chocolate Hugs, or you can get even more festive and use some of the holiday flavors. (The peppermint ones are delicious!)
