There are a lot of things to love about the holiday season. Quality time with friends and family, decorating the house, cooking delicious meals and, of course, cookie baking! Sure, you can bake all-year round, but there’s just something about breaking out the rolling pin and whipping up some sweet treats during the cozy holiday months when the weather is cold outside and the Christmas tunes are blasting inside. And if you’re in the market for cookies that taste as good as they look, we’ve got the sweets you need for the season.
If you’re planning a cookie baking party or cookie swap this season, it’s time to go all out! With the GH+ Cookie Countdown Challenge you’ll get easy and delicious recipes, decorating tips and more — meaning you’re destined to have your best year of cookie baking yet!
This 25+ page guide offers classics like sugar cookies and shortbread with fun additions to add to your recipe box, like salted caramel cookies, merry meringues, candied ginger and citrus kitchen-sink cookies. Plus, you’ll find everything you need to know to host a fabulous cookie swap with friends and family — or, at least, how to show up to a holiday party with a plate piled high with goodies!
Our exclusive guide breaks down a timeline weeks out from the delicious event, so you can plan accordingly with your shopping, gift-wrapping and holiday-moving watching — meaning you won’t have to worry about scrambling around at the last minute.
You’ll also get access to easy party tips, decorating ideas, fun recipe card templates and gift packaging ideas. Sound exciting?
