Christmas Cookies-fun and free recipes

Christmas Cookies are fun to make, and even more fun to enjoy. Made with red and green colored sugar, they brighten up any platter and everyone’s face! They are a combination of peanut butter, and chocolate! The fun part is the rolling up and dipping the balls into sugar. That, along with placing the kiss into the warm cookie when it comes out of the oven, is the best part!

Rosemary Hersey


½ cup Crisco shortening                                 1 tsp vanilla

½ cup granulated (white) sugar                       ½ tsp salt

½ cup brown sugar                                          1 tsp baking soda

½ cup peanut butter                                         1 ¾ cup flour

1 egg                                                                2 tablespoons milk

1 package HERSHEY’S Kisses (unwrapped)


Mix above ingredients together until smooth. Batter will be thick.

Roll into balls and dip in RED and GREEN Sugar.


Bake at 375’ for 8-10 minutes.

When the cookies FIRST come out of the oven, place one kiss into the center and push gently… It just start to melt and be sure you taste one when they are warm! 

Makes 4 dozen.

I usually double the recipe and freeze half.


Happy Baking!

The Zorc Family recipe

From Rosemary’s Kitchen:

Christmas Cookies



2 cups granulated sugar                   2 cups shortening (white)

3 eggs                                               2 cups oatmeal

3 ¾ cup flour                                  1 ½ tsp cinnamon

2 tsp baking soda                             ¾ tsp salt    


Cream shortening and sugar, add beaten eggs. Mix. Add oatmeal (nuts/raisins if desired), mix in sifted flour, cinnamon, soda and salt. Roll into balls, dip in colored red and green sugar, press with a fork crosswise.

Bake @ 375’ for 8-10 minutes, careful not to overcook.



These freeze well in Tupperware with wax paper in between.

They can be made anytime during the year. Be creative and use different colored sugar for each occasion. For instance, pink and red for Valentine’s Day. Or green for St. Paddy’s Day. Blue, yellow, pink and green work well for Easter.


Soft Spritz Cookies

From Rosemary’s Kitchen


Single Batch (2-3 dozen)                                        DOUBLED (4-6 dozen)

1 cup real butter (2 sticks) softened                          2 cup (4 sticks) real butter

¾ cup sugar                                                             1 1/2 cup sugar

1 large egg                                                               2 large eggs

1 tsp vanilla                                                              2 tsp vanilla

¼ tsp almond extract                                                1/4 tsp almond extract

2 ¼ cup flour                                                            4 1/2 cup flour

¼ tsp salt                                                                 1/2 tsp salt

Combine butter and sugar until creamy. Beat in egg, vanilla and almond

extract. Add flour and salt. Divide into 2-3parts and color dough (green

for trees, yellow for stars, red for ornaments, if you’re really creative,

divide into 4 parts and make one blue… really pretty when served on a

plate. ☺ )

Use press-out cookie maker to make shapes. Press cookie dough onto baking sheets.

Bake for 7-9 minutes, until just beginning to look light brown on edges.


Personal Note: These are great for Christmas.I use the Christmas tree,

ornament, and star die with spritz cookie press.
