December 4 is National Cookie Day. With all of the cookies we eat at holiday parties and the cookie exchanges we raid at this time of year, it makes sense to honor these handheld confections. But at this time of year, people love to go over-the-top with their cookies. They do, after all, have to compete with the cuteness of gingerbread houses. So we searched high and low for exceptional cookie recipes to pass on to you. So, for National Cookie Day, here are 5 outrageous cookie recipes for you to try.
Cookie Cups These darling little things look like they came from an elf’s kitchen! Though it’s not too hard to make tiny tarts — including cookies in the shape of tiny mugs filled with hot chocolate — there’s something about shrinking everyday items into Tom Thumb size. The baking part isn’t hard, but assembling the The Gunny Sack’s hot chocolate cookie cups might be the kitchen challenge you’re looking for.
