Hello and welcome to this thing we’re doing where we help you figure out what you’re gonna put in your mouth this week. Some of these are recipes we’ve tried, some of these are recipes we’re looking forward to trying, all of them are fucking delicious. Tell us what you want to put in your piehole or suggest your own recipes, and we’ll talk about which things we made, which things we loved, and which things have changed us irreversibly as people. Last week, we gave you ways to eat more goat cheese.
I’m gonna be honest with you: I am kind of a grinch. I’m not crazy about Christmas or the overall holiday season! It weirds me out that holiday songs play 24/7 for a solid month! I am not very good at being cheerful! I don’t even really like sweets or candy! I am tentatively open to cookies, however. I will forever hold these cherry kiss cookies in my heart, and I like that holiday cookie-making can be a group activity; I have fond memories of my brother and I breaking the limbs off sugar cookies of Christmases past in a childish and morbid celebration of the holiday season. So bring on your cookies and overly intense cupcakes and Yule logs, people. I can deal. Let’s do this.
these look delicious and also hard.
if somebody makes me some cookies I will bring peppermint hot chocolate and booze to your house and knit and listen to you talk about your crush for as long as you want. I AM LAZY AND I LOVE COOKIES.
I never have anyone to bake for and love peppermint hot chocolate and booze. We should probably be best friends.
Also have you ever had the hot chocolate with the candy cane pieces in it? Your hot chocolate experience will never be the same
PROBS. no I have not! will try!
As a bitter Jew who doesn’t celebrate Christmas and thinks Chanukah should only be celebrated with latkes and filled donuts, I want all of these delicious treats in my mouth/tummy space. I’m a shitty baker, but I’m a really good cook. If anyone wants to make some of these for me, I’ll make latkes or essentially any vegetarian food of your choice. I can also provide a dog to snuggle. Deal?
Will Bake For Latkes
Rachel, you are the fucking best. I wish I could hug you as thanks for bringing the recipe for Salted Bourbon Chocolate Chunk Cookies into my life.
no problem bb
jesus christ superstar I want them all
WELP I know what I’m spending my xmas/new years mini-vacation doing. Indulging my houseboi fantasies by cooking and baking all day, everyday. While drinking! I’m excited. This list is exciting. Everyone come over.
A fantasy I didn’t even know I wanted until now
I just can’t even.
You guys always know exactly what I want….exactly what I NEED. There’s like at least 5 recipes I really wanna try. The question is whether school work will give me the time to bake or not.
These look amazing! I can’t wait until I get over being sick and I can start baking cookies!!!! Personally I was already going to start with the tried and true recipe “stick Hershey’s hugs on round pretzels, bake them together, and top them with red and green m&ms so they are Christmas cookies.” I’ve never made it myself but my aunt does and for some reason that’s always the best kind she has to offer.
I’m going to make and eat all of the cookies. ALL OF THEM. And then I’ll be sick. #noregrets
Oh God I just made the rum balls except with vegan butter and with maple-finished Crown Royal, and I think I found the one thing I need to eat and be with for the rest of my life.
My pms brought me here.
It’s all about the muffins for me yo!
I need to make xmas food for vegans, is there a vegan cookie guide somewhere on here? or does anyone know how to substitute butter and eggs with vegan things? weirdly it’s the straight folks and not us lesbians that are the vegans in this situation.
http://www.peta.org/living/food/baking-cheat-sheet/ This is a pretty good list of substitutions to use to veganise non-vegan baking recipes! Apple sauce (1/3 of a cup replaces one egg) is also nice to use as an egg-replacer in baked goods, but isn’t on the list.
You can make sugar cookies with cats on them using this
cat-engraved rolling pin. They have other designs too, like dinos!
Rachel you saved Christmas!
I have no money but I’m at my mom’s house! I give me entire family cookies omg!
Wow, in my excitement I forgot how to english
