Hello Friends! How is your holiday baking going? Are you up to your elbows in flour and sugar? Or have you just started thinking about what you’d like to make? Either way, we’ve got some StateEats sweets for you.
If peanut butter is your thing (and if not, why isn’t it??) check out these Peanut Butter Buckeyes. These scrumptious morsels of
peanut butter and chocolate are always a sure-fire winner. We guarantee they will be snapped up quickly.
If you love cinnamon, you might want to make New Mexico’s state cookie, the Biscochito. In the Spanish culture, these cookies are
often served after Las Posadas, where actors reenact Mary and Joseph looking for shelter for the birth of the Christ child.
If you enjoy yeasted cookies, check out Czech Kolaches. These take a little longer to make as you need to wait for the dough to rise but
they are so worth the time. Great with a cuppa tea while you write out your holiday cards.
If you favor cutesy cookies that resemble objects found in nature, then Nutmeg Log Cookies with Eggnog Icing are for you. You can’t
beat the holiday flavors here of nutmeg and eggnog and your house will smell amazing as these bake.
Finally, if you have a gluten intolerance, and you still want something sweet for the holidays, try our Maple Cinnamon Walnut Meringues.
Made with egg whites, maple syrup and some nuts and spices, these cookies are left in the oven overnight (with the oven off!) until crisp.
Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
