2017 Baking Day Cookies

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about our Holiday Traditions.  One of our traditions is to have a baking day and then we deliver the goodies we bake to neighbors and friends.  So I thought today I would share with you the treats we made.  This year we kept it pretty simple and quick, but there were very delicious.
A Glimpse of Normal Blog, Baking Day Cookies, Treats

1.  Cinnamon Pebbles Rice Krispy Treats - For the last few years we have done cereal treats in our goodie packs.  We love to make ours in all kinds of flavors.  This year we found some Cinnamon Pebbles cereal that we mixed in with our Rice Krispies cereal to make them flavored.
2.  Buckeyes - This is a family favorite of ours.  They are pretty easy to make and hard to keep my family out of so there are enough to give away.
3.  Sour Cream Cut-Out Cookies - This is our go to recipe that I posted on the blog several years ago.  I am not a chill the dough kind of girl and this recipe doesn't have to be chilled.  They are the perfect mix of sweet, but not too sweet cookie and then you can choose the frosting you put on them.
4.  Chocolate Oatmeal No Bake Cookies - These are out other favorite.  I do cheat and instead of dropping them into individual cookies, I pour them in a cake pan to cool.  Once they are cooled I cut them into squares since we make double batches of them for giving away.
5.  Saltine Toffee - We have always called this Cracker Candy, but it is another super easy one.  You can also change it up by adding different kinds of chips with the chocolate chips.  Sometimes I do a mix of peanut butter chips and chocolate chips.  This year for one batch I mixed chocolate chips and cinnamon chips, it was pretty tasty.
6.  No Bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bars - This was a new one for us this year, but it was very tasty.  It is pretty rich and reminded us for fudge.
7.  Rolo Pretzel Bites - These taste like chocolate turtles with a little extra crunch.  They are super simple and take hardly any time to make.
Those are the treats we made this year.  We delivered 15 goodie trays and have taken baked goods to a couple of events.  Baking is therapy and sharing means we don't eat it all.  Merry Christmas!!!
