If you’ve been following our #12CookiesofChristmas posts, then you know that we have been baking up a storm over the past few weeks. We made 15 different kinds of cookies including two brand new recipes and a twist on crinkle cookies by using Red Velvet cake mix instead of Devil’s Food. Over 1,000 cookies later,… Continue reading The Daily Soirée’s 2015 Cookie Tray
For years, we avoided making sugar cookies because decorating them with royal icing just seemed like too much of a hassle given the number of other cookies we make (check out #12CookiesofChristmas posts to see what else makes it onto our cookie tray!). Finally, a few years ago, I decided with all of my decorating… Continue reading Christmas Sugar Cookies
In our family, we all love coconut and chocolate coconut candy and desserts. And so when we came across a recipe for macaroon with a chocolate center, we knew we had to give it a try. That was a few years ago and Inside Out Mounds have been a part of our cookie tray every… Continue reading Inside Out Mounds

Pizzelles aren’t the only Italian cookie we make during the holidays. Last year we added amaretti to our cookie list and they were a huge hit! The nice thing about these cookies is no mixer is required. You just need a food processor. They also only have 3 ingredients making them a breeze to throw together.… Continue reading Christmas Amaretti
Instead of just making red (strawberry), green (Mint OREO), and white (vanilla) pudding shots for Christmas parties this year, I decided to try out something new. After giving it some thought, I decided that Peppermint Bark pudding shots would be delicious and festive.
We are officially half way through our holiday baking! The last cookie we finished up tonight was our Mint Surprises. Just like the name implies, these cookies have an Andes mint hidden inside. They are so well hidden, in fact, that we had to start making the icing on top green so people had warning!
Over the years, we have worked pretty hard to make sure we end up with a well-rounded cookie tray. Sometimes it’s hard to find interesting non-chocolate cookie recipes and so when we discovered the Brickle Drop Cookie recipe on the back of a package of Hershey’s Heath Toffee Bits we were excited to give it… Continue reading Brickle Drop Cookies
