Christmas Cookies

Andy Williams sang “It’s The Most Wonderful Time of The Year,” however the general reaction we’re getting from everyone is that they aren’t in the Christmas Spirit. The year has been a chore at best, and we’re all feeling weighed down. No one wants to think about cooking, and Christmas Cookies have been the last thing on our minds. But we mustered some holiday spirit, updated a few recipes, (Heather’s toddlers are not thrilled with the “bad cookies” a/k/a oatmeal raisin), and created an easy-to-find page filled with Christmas treats and sweets all in one spot.

Ease is important to us. We are all at different life stages and want to ensure that everything we do helps you to invite ease and comfort into your life. Sure, work is involved, but once you manage some of the hard things, it does get easier. Taking care of the day-to-day things in life is difficult, and when you add in the holidays, the chaos can zap energy levels, leaving us miserable and cranky. This is why we created a list you can scroll through — it’s easier than searching the site.

Please note that we are retesting and recreating every recipe on Home-Ec 101, including new step-by-step photos. If you see us in the grocery store buying mass quantities of butter, sugar, and flour, with cookie crumbs clinging to our clothing and a dazed look on our faces in 2023, you will know we are doing it all for our Home Ec 101 family.

These are the black sheep of the cookie family. Not a whole lot of class, but we love them anyhow. Don’t let the no-bake name fool you. These are less kid-friendly than most baked cookies, as the hot butter and…

Updated 2022, Originally published December 2008 I almost wish I hadn’t updated this microwave peanut butter fudge recipe. Why? It’s dangerously easy. I don’t mean it’s dangerous in that you’ll hurt yourself making it. I mean that it’s too easy…

    • I hope the coming year is better. We had a non-traditional Christmas dinner the year and it was a big hit.We made birria and chorizo tacos. This may be a new tradition going forward. We’ll see. It was nice to not spend the whole day cooking.
