Antonias all-time favorite Christmas Cookies Collection

Hello, to our endearing followers and to everybody who is new and just discovered our little blog. Today in this post I show you my collection of my all-time favorite Christmas cookies, which I prepare every year.

This year I started early with my Christmas bakery in the middle of November. Did you know that baking cookies is the perfect idea for a date with your significant other? Well me neither but that’s how I got together with my lovely boyfriend and shared our first kiss while baking and eating christmas cookies. Romantic isn’t it?

Now back to my Christmas cookie collection ?

  • First off I start with my own recipe for Austrian Vanillekipferl (vanilla crescents). These are made with whole grain flour and part brown sugar. My whole family loves them and they are my favorite for the christmas time. If you want to try an Austrian Christmas Cookie recipe, than I recommend you Vanillekipferl, because they are easy to make and you don‘t need a lot pf ingredients. You will find my delicious recipe here!
  • Bailey‘s Hazelnut Chocolate Shortbread Cookies
    These Baileys Hazelnut Chocolate Shortbread Cookies are holiday perfection. The baileys liquor and vanilla extract give these cookies such a great deep flavor and dipped in chocolate are they just pure deliciousness. You can find my recipe here.
  • Ninas Fairy Kisses – unique Christmas Cookie recipe
    This is a delicious Christmas cookie recipe for amazing light and airy Fairy Kisses Cookies. Sugar cookie base – Candy – Meringue on top. Most perfect for that special holiday season of the year and gone before you can count to 10?
  • Brown Butter Hawaij-Spiced Snickerdoodle
    I found this recipe while scrolling through my instagram feed one day and I instantly fell in love with Taylors Blog allpurposeflourchild. It‘s really hard to find a good recipe for snickerdoodles and these are my favorites. I just changed it a bit instead of 1/2 tsp cinnamon I added 1tsp. And for the hawaij spiced sugar I used 1/3 cup granulated sugar, 2tsp ginger, 2tsp cardamon, 2tsp cinnamon, 1/4 nutmeg, 1/4 tsp cloves and pinch salt.
  • Chocolate Chip Cookies from hummingbird high
    I could eat chocolate chip cookies all year round. And there are a lot of really great recipes which make the perfect round crispy on the edges soft in the middle chocolate chip cookies. This recipe is one of those great ones and always have on hand.
  • Linzer Augen – an Austrian Classic
    I found this recipe years ago in an Austrian baking magazine and ever since I have used this recipe.

    Ingredients: 300g whole grain flour, 100g powdered sugar, 1 pinch of salt, 1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste, 150g butter cold, 1 zests of one organic lemon, 1 egg yolk, 150g your favorite jam
    For the dough combine flour and powdered sugar, salt, vanilla paste and cold butter with your fingertips to a crumb like texture. Add lemon zests and egg yolk until dough forms. Chill in the fridge for 60 minutes. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 2-3mm. Using Linzer Augen cookie cutters or an empty glass, cut into matching pairs. Cut a ¾ inch diameter hole from one of each pair. Bake on the middle rack for 8-10 minutes until golden. Let cool completely before spreading the jam on the hole–less side of the pair. Place matching half on top of the jam-covered one. Dust them all with powdered Sugar.
  • Easy Cornflake-Chocolate Cookies
    These are one of my boyfriends favorites and for on of our dates before we’ve become girlfriend and boyfriend we’ve made this cookies. They are very easy to make and only need two ingredients.
    200g milk chocolate and 300g cornflakes
    Carefully melt the milk chocolate and carefully stir in the cornflakes until everything is coated. Use two teaspoons to make little heaps on the baking sheet until you used up all the mixture. Chill in the fridge.
  • Gluten-free Peanut Butter blossom cookies from the toasted pine nut.
    I love everything peanut butter and these are just perfect, even my dad likes them and he. is. very. picky! They are easy to make and you only need a few ingredients, but make sure you use high quality smooth peanut butter.. Try them and tell me what you think.

Lots of <3 Antonia
