Making Cookies Count When You Don't Bake Much
What's a non-baker like me to do? How about this: just make some simple cookies that taste good and don't require a design degree—or professional baking skills—to make.
It's totally okay to, you know, just bake a good cookie.
Let's face it, these cookies are called the Best Chocolate Chip Cookies for a reason. And that reason is people eat them immediately after looking at them. No time to admire the frosting here.
You want a little decoration, but not too much? Then this is for you. It's an easy cookie with the easiest "decoration" possible.
Just remember, the chocolate goes on the fully-baked cookie. Not on the raw dough. Don't ask me how I know this.
Ooh! These have THREE different parts to the "cookie." But you don't have to make any of them!
There's really no better use of snacks than this.
So, you want a good cookie, and you'd like people to feel a little festive when they see them?
Then these Reindeer Cookies are what you need. Quick and easy holiday cheer!
The great thing about these? They've got "melted" right in the title, so they look festive even if they look, well, melted!
Plus, these are prime candidate for already-made sugar cookies, or some refrigerated dough from the grocery store.
If you're as serious about not being a baker as I am, then these are for you. No oven, no problem.
So go ahead, join that cookie exchange. Bring cookies to a holiday potluck. Set out a plate for Santa. These easy Christmas cookies will disappear just as quickly as the ones that took an expert to make.
