Tis' the season to share. And that's what we're doing, sharing Christmas Cookie recipes.
Recently, we asked on our Facebook page to share your favorite Christmas Cookie recipe. Everyone loves making cookies this time of the year. I remember baking with my Nana and Aunt every year making Christmas cookie cut-outs. We would ice them with pink and green icing. Christmas trees, angels, Santa, and so many more. It is such an awesome tradition and great memory that I passed on to my daughter.
My Mom made her "famous" chocolate chip cookies from scratch. "Famous" to the neighbors and friends of Quakertown, PA (LOL). She never used a recipe so I can't share it with you. Every year she would throw something different into her chocolate chip cookie batch. I remember helping her, she would cover the the entire kitchen with little balls of chocolate chip cookies. And, that smell, I will never forget it.
Here are some recipes our WOBM listeners shared. Thank you for sharing your traditions with us:
Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies from Allison
1 cup Peanut Butter

"It's so easy", Allison says.
Also you can use Nutella in place of Peanut Butter.
Reindeer Plops from Jane
Get all your ingredients ready first. It moves fast.
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup WHOLE milk
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup raisins or craisins
1 cup oatmeal. (I have switched this out for gluten free granola when needed).
Grease a large cookie sheet or line with waxed paper.
In a pan over medium heat mix together the sugar, milk, cocoa and butter. Mix completely and stir frequently.
Boil for 1 minute then remove from heat.
Add the peanut butter, raisins/craisins and oatmeal.
Let the mix set for one minute then drop by spoonfuls onto your cookie sheet.
They will not spread much so you can place them closer together than you would for baked cookies.
Let them cool completely.
Store in an airtight container.
