Hi everyone, Alissa here! I’m sharing a Christmas cookie recipe with you today that’s been a staple in my family for generations. The holidays just wouldn’t be the same without them! Okay, so they’re not the healthiest cookies on the planet, but they’re delicious, you can share them with friends and family (perfect for cookie swaps!), and you can make cute little shapes with them!
Some of you may be familiar with them. They’re called “Snow Flakes” and are very similar to Spritz Cookies. Both are typically made with a special cookie press that “cranks” them out in different festive shapes. The main difference between the two recipes is that, unlike Spritz Cookies, Snow Flakes contain cream cheese and cinnamon which give them a little extra flavor. Yum!
Note: To create the shapes you’ll need a Spritz Cookie Press which you can find here, but it’s not required. They’ll taste just as delicious if you roll them with your hands. 😉
I hope you love these cookies as much as my family does!
If your family has any holiday recipe traditions you’d like to share, please feel free to do so in the comments below! We’d love to hear them! 🙂
