These buttery shortbread cookies get a little dollop of raspberry jam right in the middle before baking. Finish off with a sweet vanilla icing drizzled over for a Christmas cookie that everyone will devour.
Nothing says the holidays like a red velvet dessert. And these red velvet cookies are a cinch to make. And pairs so well with white chocolate.
This is the closest recipe I could find that mimics my grandmother’s recipe. It’s a favorite cookie from my childhood. Rolled in powdered sugar and toasted pecans!
Is there anything more adorable? I placed a snowflake in the middle but you can keep them simple or have fun decorating them!
This was my other 2nd favorite cookie. It’s a rolled cream cheese dough that puffs up, and a sweet raspberry jam and walnut filling.
You can use festive green and red M&M’s, or after baking plop a kiss down into the center and turn these into peanut butter cookie blossoms.
Not sure if these are “holiday” or not. But with a hidden surprise of caramel in the center of these cookies. No one will care!
Grab a bag of those red and green M&M’s to whip up a batch of these soft
