By December 20, 2017February 23rd, 2021Dental Care

Our dentist office in College Station have picked out some of our favorites.

Gingerbread

Nothing says it’s the holiday season quite like gingerbread, and these cookies are guaranteed to please. The recipe is simple, making it an excellent choice for those who don’t consider themselves to be bakers. Plus, decorating options abound. Anything from piped icing to cinnamon candies to raisins complement the flavor, so you can choose the option that most appeals to you.

Vanilla Bean Sugar Cookies

Sugar cookies are also another classic holiday treat, and the decorating options are almost endless. Again, the recipe is simple, making it perfect for novice bakers. Plus, the instructions include an icing recipe, so you can take pride in creating everything but the sprinkles from scratch.

Red Velvet Cookies

If you are looking for one of the easiest recipes imaginable, then these Red Velvet cookies are a great choice. This recipe uses a box of red velvet cake mix and only three other ingredients, making the process of creating the batter nearly foolproof. And, after they bake, the cookies keep their festive red color. Just dust the finished cookies with powdered sugar, and you’re done.

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

When in doubt, chocolate chip cookies are always a crowd pleaser, and these are outstanding. The recipe is a little more complex than those listed above, as it requires browning the butter and resting the dough overnight (or up to three days), but the results make all of the extra work worthwhile. So, if you’re an experienced baker or are feeling a bit ambitious, these cookies should definitely be on your list.
