Tis the season for sweets and cookies galore so it’s a good thing today is Bake Cookies Day!
One of my favorite memories growing up was when my mom, sister and I would go over to my grandma’s house and all bake cookies. My great aunt was usually there as well and we would spend the entire day baking cookies for every Christmas celebration that year.
We would make Peanut Butter Blossoms, M&M cookies, spritz cookies, and more!
My sister and I would have to make sure that we each got to put the same number of Hershey’s kisses in the peanut blossoms and we’d sneak as many extra kisses and M&Ms as we could. It was one of my favorite traditions growing up.
I don’t get this same big baking day anymore but I usually try to make a batch or two of a cookie that I can eat and enjoy during the holidays, while there are often other treats that don’t fit within my dietary restrictions. With that said, I did a little scoping around Pinterest and these are my top contenders…
