Christmas spice cookies

When I want a cookie, I usually go for something chunky with a lot of stuff in it. It’s not that often that I’m like, “I’ll take a plain sugar cookie.” But then I have a really good one, like these Christmas Spice Cookies, and I’m reminded of just how much I like them.  These cookies begin with a delicious, basic vanilla sugar cookie dough (Dorie calls it “Do-Almost-Anything”) that’s then amped up with the usual warm holiday spices. You get a crisp, flavorful, subtly spiced cookie with the perfect sandy texture. I’m not much of a cookie decorator, as you can see…frankly, a child could have done better than the hack job I did here. I need more time and maybe a baking buddy to help me get into that, but even with just a sprinkle of sanding sugar, these were festive and tasty.

For the recipe, see Dorie’s Cookies by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll and please join us if you haven’t already!

  1. I have never gotten i to cookie decorating, but I am wondering if doing too much to them would take away from the flavor anyway?

  2. Yum. I cannot wait to try these. Your decorating looks fine! I did the pfefferneusse and they were delicious.

  3. I am not a cookie decorator either. Not even a cookie baker for that matter. The red sugar gives these cookies the distinct holiday look.

  4. These look delish. I’m looking forward to baking them later in the month.

  5. These cookies are so tasty, they don’t need much embellishment. Yours are perfect!

  6. I love sanding sugar and I love the pinkish color you used!

  7. Well these look really delicious and I can’t wait to make them next time. Mine won’t be decorated either…well, at this moment I don’t think they will be and it would take quite a bit to get me going in that direction as I am not at all creative (knowledge well established). It’s so fun being back baking with you. xo

  8. Festive and tasty for the win!

  9. i am lousy at decorating anything! I think your cookies looks great!

  10. I am a lover of the more plain cookie and these sound just perfect for me. Great simple Holiday cookie.

  11. Looking forward to making these, glad they were tasty.

  12. Well they look yummy to me 🙂

  13. Glad you enjoyed these. I generally don’t go for plain cookies either, but they can be so good.

  14. I think they look festive – sometimes less is more!

  15. Lovely and festive!
