1 Cookie Dough - 12 Ways

A christmas cookie box series that uses one sugar cookie recipe and turns it into 12 different cookie recipes.

The purpose of this recipe was to make Christmas cookies easily accessible to anyone and everyone. With basic ingredients and simple equipment these cookies are all attainable for any baker. You don’t need to have fancy tools and expensive ingredients to make these cookies. Sometimes sugar cookies can get boring and monotonous hence these 12 flavors are all distinct in every aspect. if you are feeling adventurous you can double up the recipe and try out all the cookies, however scale down the other recipes. 

Each recipe is distinct and has other elements to it, you can find the recipes within each cookie however you could also bake them without the additional fillings and icings etc. I have developed these cookies in such a way that you don’t need to make the add ons, they are delicious on their own. Alot of the cookies can be made ahead as their storage is for at least a week. Hence they are a great make ahead situation during the holidays. 

I have lot of holiday baking recipe inspiration on the blog as I love Christmas baking, check out the Hot cocoa cookies and Maple sugar cookie recipe. If you are looking for something that is not cookie then the Instant Christmas Cake Recipe is one you cannot miss, how to soak your dried fruit is essential for this time of year, my Vegan vanilla cake is the best fluffy best cake you will make, festive Panna Cotta, Cranberry orange loaf cake too. I have a ton of festive drinks as well, like the Tiramisu twist, Santaclausmopolitan, Cranberry spritzer, French toast latte etc.
