Get into the festive spirit with these gorgeous and delicious Christmas cookies! Perfect as edible gifts, for Christmas Fairs and festive coffee mornings. Check out the features and link up your recipes with #CookBlogShare Week #50.
Welcome to #CookBlogShare Week #50 – my last time as host!
#CookBlogShare is a weekly link party where we share recipes, comment on each other’s cooking creations and generally immerse ourselves in the world of gastronomy!
For the past 2 and a half years I’ve been co-hosting this link party together with 2 fantastic bloggers: Eb from Easy Peasy Foodie and Jacqui from Recipes Made Easy. It’s been a huge privilege and great fun to co-host alongside these 2 lovely ladies and I will miss it. A massive thank you to Jacqui and Eb for being the best co-hosts ever and thank you to all the lovely bloggers who have been a part of the #CookBlogShare family.
I am sure #CookBlogShare will continue to thrive as Eb and I leave it in the very capable hands of Jacqui who will be sharing her hosting duties with Lesley and Michelle from Lost in Food. There will also be guest hosts – if this is something that would interest you please get in touch with Jacqui.
If you are new to this link party please take a moment to read the guidelines below. Joining is very simple and you are welcome to share your old and new recipes (there is no specific theme and all recipes are welcome).
Thank you to everyone who shared their recipe with us last week.
The features: 6 Christmas Cookies
As today is my last #CookBlogShare and we are well into the festive season I thought I’d throw a little party with these fantastic Christmas cookies. You’ve shared as many as 6 cookies recipes with us last week and I decided to feature all of them!
So let’s celebrate!
Jacqui shared these gorgeous Cinnamon Star Cookies, which come together in less than 30 minutes! Jacqui is an accomplished baker so I know theses cookies not only look fantastic but taste yummy too. So if you are looking for a delicious festive edible gift idea that’s also easy to make check out her recipe. Jacqui shares her lovely bakes on Only Crumbs Remain, where you’ll find lots of baking inspiration perfect for Christmas and beyond.
These Candy Cane Kiss Chocolate Crinkle Cookies from Angie at Fiesta Friday scream Christmas! They look so pretty it’s almost a shame to eat them. Hop over to her blog and find out the secret to making the perfect chocolate crinkle cookies! Angie hosts her own fantastic weekly link party over at Fiesta Friday, which I am ashamed to say I haven’t visited for a while but I am planning to rectify this week. I promise to come and bring a recipe over, Angie!
Choclette from Tin and Thyme is another star baker amongst us and last week she shared her Wholemeal Clotted Cream Shortbread biscuits. Clotted cream is absolutely divine so I can imagine just how delicious these festive cookies must be. Especially as they also contain a hint of chestnut and spice. Choclette makes fantastic bakes using whole grain ingredients so check out her blog if you still haven’t done so!
Jenny from Apply to Face Blog shared her Easy Christmas Cookies, which are perfect to make with kids. These cookies contain very few ingredients and are super simple and fun to make. They are great as an edible festive gift, Christmas decoration and perfect for Christmas fairs. Jenny’s cooking is deliciously comforting and ‘good for the soul’ so check out her blog for some great, comforting casseroles and indulgent bakes!
These Florentine Cookies with Dark Chocolate are bursting with festive fruit and make the perfect holiday season treat. The candied fruits are paired with dark chocolate, cornflakes for a crispy yet chewy texture, all encased in lots of delicious caramel flavour. This is another festive bake that’s perfect as an edible holiday gift. Check out Sylvie’s A Baking Journey blog for lots more fantastic bakes!
Kate from Gluten Free Alchemist shared her German Gingerbread Cookies which are deliciously spiced little creations, absolutely addictive and essential around Christmas time. This recipe is very close to my heart as gingerbread bakes are hugely popular in Poland and to this day are my favourite Christmas treat. But I’ve never had gingerbread cookies that looked as good as Kate’s! Kate’s post makes for an interesting read as it gives a bit of historical background about German gingerbread cookies. Check it out!
And that is all for me!
