Christmas Cookies - The First Round

My first round of cookies are done.  I posted the recipe for the three ingredient peanut butter cookies earlier.
In this first round of cookies I made, in addition to the peanut butter cookies, chocolate chip cookies (because they are my husband's favorite), vanilla butter cookies, chocolate spritz cookies, and cinnamon sugar cookies.  These last three are made with a cookie press.

And this is when that homemade colored sugar came in handy.
I brushed the sugar coated cookies with some warm light corn syrup then rubbed the cookie, sticky side down, in the colored sugar.  The tray above I will be taking to a Christmas party.
 The tiered tray sits out o the kitchen counter inviting holiday snacking.
 I also filled up ten little boxes with a dozen cookies each to give away as needed.  People are always stopping by this time of year.  It is nice to have an impromptu gift to give.  Tomorrow might be round two of cookie madness.

Don't forget to follow me on Facebook and Pinterest.

  5. Great idea! I love the little boxes and would be glad to accept a few filled with cookies! Your cookies look so yummy. I always wondered how to get the color sugar to stick to a cooled cookie! Thanks for linking to Snickerdoodle Sunday!
