Take Back Thursday Gingerbread Delights #TBT

Since Chrismas falls on Thursday this year, I thought it would be fun to re-use my favourite Christmas cookie recipe today and show you how I decorated my gingerbread cookies this Christmas. I'm just posting early since I know I'll be a little busy tomorrow!  

This year I bought a reindeer cookie cutter and created little reindeer and Santa combos to munch with milk, eggnog, or whatever our hearts desire tonight. And, if there are any left, Santa will get some too! 

Enjoy your holiday tomorrow! Best wishes from my home to yours!

Tangy Chocolate Christmas Cookies

To me, chocolate is the king of desserts and cookies are the king of Christmas desserts. So that means that chocolate cookies must top the list, right? I like to think so.

This Christmas I felt like making a few new cookie recipes in addition to my tried and true favourites,  just for the fun of it. And clearly that meant trying a new chocolate Christmas cookie.

I taste tested my way through a few different recipes, a really tough job, and finally create this recipe - one so good that it will be pulled out all through the year! These cookies are tangy, rich, decedent, and pretty healthy too because it's almost all chocolate and that's dairy!

So let's get down to the recipe for my new Tangy Chocolate Christmas Cookies! You have to try these!

Grinch Cookies!

I love everything about about Christmas, but watching a Christmas movie while munching on homemade cookies would have to be my very favourite holiday activity. And to make this year's favourite activity even more festive, I made a new cookie that's inspired by one of my favourite holiday movies, the Grinch Who Stole Christmas!

I've enjoyed matcha tea, a powdered green tea, in lattes for awhile but adding it to a batch of cookies is the perfect way to naturally dye my cookies a delightfully grinchy green. And simple pink piped hearts, three sizes too small, adds to the Who-ville experience in a way I know every single one of you will agree.

So get out your mixing bowls and cookie sheets to bake up a batch of what I think is going to turn into everyone's new holiday favourite - Grinch Cookies!
