‘Tis the Season to Get Baking

Tis the Season to Get Baking


If you’re anything like us, it’s not truly the holidays until that smell of cookies is permeating your house. Grab some cookies, hot cocoa, PJs and your fave holiday movie and you’ve got an afternoon worth staying in for.

Here are three of our favorite recipes we’re baking this December:

When you’re feeling nostalgic: Gingerbread Cookies

These adorb little guys are the cutest treat to make you feel like a little kid again. Plus they’re just tasty. Every time we sip on a gingerbread latte we can’t help but think of these.

Check out the recipe from Life Made Simple.

When you’re feeling like your baking skills are Snapchat-worthy: Peppermint Pattie Cookies

Martha Stewart who? December’s got us feeling all things peppermint, and not only are these peppermint cookies pretty easy to make, they look like you spent all day in the kitchen baking up a storm. Your friends will be so jealous.

Check out the recipe from How Sweet Eats.

When you’re feeling like you want to learn Portuguese for your bae: Sugar Cookie Bars

You’ll love, actually this next recipe. But only after watching Love Actually for the 20th time when you’re snowed in. Our favorite part about these cookies are the cream cheese and sprinkles. That’s all you really need in life, right?

Check out the recipe from Averie Cooks.
