Holiday Cookies?

Question by cutiewithabooooty: Holiday Cookies?
I’m baking a bunch of cookies to give to my friends and family for Christmas.

Does anyone have any really great or unique cookie recipes?

Please don’t tell me to buy pre-made dough – I want to make this special :)

These are easy to make and sooooo good.

Scandinavian Almond Bars:

INGREDIENTS
1/2 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sliced almonds
2 tablespoons milk
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1/4 cup milk
DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
In a medium bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add egg and almond extract; mix until fluffy. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt; mix well.
Divide dough into 4 pieces, and roll each one into a log about 12 inches long. Place 2 logs per cookie sheet 4 to 5 inches apart. Flatten each roll by hand until it is about 3 inches wide. Brush flattened roll with milk and sprinkle with sliced almonds.
Bake in preheated oven 12 to 15 minutes or until edges are slightly browned. While the cookies are still warm, cut them crosswise at a diagonal, into slices about 1 inch wide. When cool, drizzle with almond icing.
Almond icing: In a small bowl, stir together powdered sugar, almond extract, and milk until smooth. Drizzle over the cookies.

    Make rice crispy treat wreaths with green food coloring and put red candies on as hollies. Put candies on after wreaths are made and still soft of course.
    Peanut butter cookies with a chocolate kiss in the middle make a nice holiday cookie.

    People LOVE these! Each sweet chocolate cookie has a caramel suprise in the middle. Dipped in Pecans right before baking gives it that extra kick. Merry Christmas
