There are a few good reasons why crinkle cut cookies are a holiday tradition:
- These cookies are so good you need the holidays to force moderation.
- This particular type of cookie offers the perfect amount of sweetness. The deep, rich chocolate flavor will lead you to be satisfied after only a few, yet leave room for you to try a few other sweet treats from the holiday table.
- The powder sugar finish creates a festive snowy appearance.
- Crinkle sounds very similar to Kringle, as in Kris Kringle, AKA Santa Claus!

Admittedly, I’m a pretty sub-par baker. After subjecting my loved ones to countless batches of charred, tasteless creations, I took a hiatus from making desserts. It wasn’t until I unearthed this delicious and easy recipe from a friend’s Detroit-based cookbook, Sister Pie, that I decided to give the whole baking thing another go.

There was a time in my 20s when the oven was the most used appliance in my kitchen; almost as much as my coffee maker. I loved baking so much back then, that friends constantly showed up at my apartment knowing there would be something good to eat.

After living in Germany, I will always associate holiday time with speculoos cookies. At every Christmas market throughout Europe, you will find beautiful and perfectly spiced cookies. Some are adorned with glaze, some with almonds, and some even handpainted. My spin is a simple speculoos cookie sandwiched with a thick and gooey caramel filling.

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.
