INGREDIENTS FOR CHRISTMAS COOKIES

For this easy Christmas cookie recipe, you’ll need just a few simple ingredients including:

  • flour – I use all-purpose flour for this recipe.
  • cornstarch – helps provide structure.
  • baking soda – assists the cookies rise.
  • salt – brings out all the flavors in the cookies.
  • butter – I use unsalted; lends flavor, richness and tenderness to the cookies.
  • brown sugar – helps cookies retain moisture and gives a deep molasses flavor.
  • granulated sugar – adds sweetness.
  • vanilla extract – using a pure vanilla extract enhances the flavors in the recipe.
  • egg – acts as a stabilizer for cookies.
  • chocolate chips – ooey, gooey, warm, melted chocolate; need I say more?
  • butterscotch chips – adds more depth of flavor.
  • red and green M&Ms – adds festive color.
  • chopped pretzels – make sure you break them into small pieces.
  • toffee bits – one of my favorite flavors as it melts all through the cookies!

TIPS FOR MAKING BEST-EVER KITCHEN SINK CHRISTMAS COOKIES

  • Make sure you don’t overbake these cookies. Go ahead and pull them out of the oven while the centers are just slightly underdone. That’s how you get that perfectly soft center in the cookie.
  • I prefer to use mini pretzels that I broke in thirds. You can use pretzel squares or sticks, just break them down into smaller pieces
  • While you can use any type of toffee, I prefer to use Heath Milk Chocolate Toffee Bits. These can be found in the baking aisle.
  • Add a sprinkle of sea salt on top of warm cookies to take them to another level.
