Cookie Round-Up 2010!

Grab some insulin, here we go!!

Based on your feedback, Christmas (Crack) Bark is the 2010 delight that needs to come with a warning sign and disclaimer.

I take no ownership for Christmas Crack addictions. Prepare at your own risk (of complete ecstasy!)!!

 

A perfect Rolled Sugar Cookie with Christmas Cookie Frosting.

 

Chocolate & Peppermint Bark Cookies were 2009’s top pick!

 

Lemon Coconut Snowball Cookies lighten up and refresh any Christmas cookie spread. These cookies are perfectly bite-sized and full of lemon & coconut flavor.

 

The Peanut Butter Blossom is the classic cookie aimed to please both the peanut butter and chocolate lovers in your life. You can never go wrong with peanut butter + chocolate, sealed with a KISS!

 

Quick, easy creamy Peanut Butter Fudge.

 

Candy Cane Biscotti…coffee has never been classier or more delicious.

 

The life-changing Maple Snickerdoodle. Look no further, you just landed upon the recipe for THE BEST snickerdoodle…ever!

 

Almond Toffee is the traditional, rich candy treat. There is something about toffee that is elegant and very chic.

 

 

Smooth, creamy, mouth-watering Fleur de Sel Caramels with Vanilla Bean

 

Mr. P’s personal favorite: Crock Pot Peanut Clusters..

 

Chocolate Truffles…decadent and rich.

 

The perfect red & green treat: White Chocolate Cranberry-Pistachio Fudge

I did say to grab some insulin, right? 😉

I don’t know about you, but I’ve more than had my fill of holiday junk…I’m ready to ring in the new year with some wholesome, nutritious, and delicious foods.

How about you? Are you all tuckered out on junk and sweets? Do you have plans to start 2011 out on the right, healthy foot?

Be well,

  1. all of them look so tempting…and very beautifully done

  2. I made the recipe you posted for peanut butter blossoms yesterday, and they are seriously the fluffiest, most delicious peanut butter cookies I’ve ever eaten! Thank you!

  3. I actually haven’t eaten much junk food this holiday season. Not sure why, but it’s okay with me.

  4. I have only barely started to bake for the holidays and i already feel like I need to inhale broccoli by the pound! This is one great round-up!

  5. Lol at “grab your insulin”! Thanks for the round up… I have some baking planned this weekend and have been researching recipes.

  6. Wow, this is one seriously delicious round-up! You are really a girl after my own heart, Nicole, since everything you chose is something I already love or would love to try! Speaking of which, I really need to make those Snickerdoodles!

  7. Tracey @ I'm (not) Superhuman

    Like an idiot, I gave up sweets in early December. I can’t decide whether reading blogs this past month has made my sugar craving worse or whether it’s gotten me over my cravings.

  8. Tracey @ I'm (not) Superhuman

    Like and idiot, I gave up sweets in early December. I’m not yet sure whether reading blogs this month has made my cravings worse or whether it’s helped me get over my need for sweets.

  9. As soon as I kick my Christmas Crack addiction ( attending a 4 step program right now…lol), I will be jumping on that healthy eating bandwagon with ya! 🙂

    What a beautiful display of all your baking masterpieces this year! happy holidays!!!

  10. Weighting For 50

    Your photos are stellar!!! Thanks so much for sharing them. I personally haven’t had TOO many sweets this year, so would happily indulge in ANY (actually ALL) of the cookies above. I’m ready to grab the insulin!! 🙂 Have a good Wednesday.

  11. ugh, I’m with you! I’m on junk food overload!! Gotta get back on track (& treadmill!) Of course, might have to make Christmas crack one more time 😀

  12. So many treats! Gosh you’ve made so many goodies this year. I’m all sweet-ed out. Even just walking by sweets make me feel sick a bit… Give me a couple days and I’ll be down for them again!

  13. I have my insulin pen in hand just looking at all those pics! 😀 I have done really well this holiday season. Yesterday in my office we had:

    homemade cookies
    homemade donuts
    a crock pot of hot apple cider
    3 boxes of Polish danishes
    1 box of caramels with sea salt (a lot like yours above)

    and I didn’t have any of it. Until someone got an edible basket and I ate cantaloupe and honey dew melon – who is this Biz and what did you do with the old one?! Ha!

    I’ve been tracking my points, including the wine – loving the new program. An office I worked with had a WW program too – nice to hear your office is doing the same!

  14. I’ve already made my cookies but looking at these make me want to bake some more! Great collection of recipes!

  15. Oh my goodness! You’re kitchen looks delicious! I’m making Christmas crack tonight – hope it’s as awesome as everyone says it is!

  16. You did a truly outstanding job with all of your holiday baking this year. But it really shouldn’t surprise me, your recipes/pics always leave me coming back for more! 🙂

  17. Oooh, love the idea of maple snickerdoodles! I LOVE adding maple flavor to desserts 🙂
