Melting Moments Christmas Cookies

By Rachel Castro /

Baking Christmas cookies is always a tradition that I celebrate with my Mom every holiday season. Now that I live 2 hours away from her, it’s the thing I look most forward to! We spend the weekend listening to our favorite Christmas music and whipping up all of our family favorite cookie recipes passed all the way down from my great-great-grandma (as you can see by the faded writing and very messy recipe cards.) We bake really early so we can mail out a tin to my siblings and then freeze the rest (minus some for late night snacks) and pull them out around Christmas. The holidays are crazy enough so it feels good to get the holiday baking out of the way early!

Melting moments is in the top three of my favorites we make each year. They’re such a simple recipe – 6 ingredients total and a unique texture and taste that really stands out on that festive cookie tray.

Holiday Ginger Cookies Recipe

By Miranda Rosbach /
When it comes to quintessential holiday scents, chocolate and gingerbread might top the list. It’s no wonder, what with the warm, earthy quality of both, each lending a coziness to the time of year spent indoors—where kitchens swell with the fragrance of seasonal baked goods and hearts lighten a bit. Think of these cookies as a sophisticated take on the holiday classic without the cookie cutter. Little hands can even help roll the dough into balls and coat them in Turbinado sugar. Pair these ginger cookies with a cup of tea and nestle down to share a story together.

Simply put, Friendsgiving is Thanksgiving dinner shared between friends friends.  A gathering to raise a glass and celebrate with those who you may not not see as often as you’d like, but when you do, it’s like no time has passed.
