A Christmas Story Leg Lamp Cookies

For some dads, the best part about preparing these Christmas cookies will be eating the occasional spoonful of peanut butter. All others will simply appreciate the homage paid to arguably the most famous Christmas movie of all time. “Fra-gee-lay—it must be Italian!” Wherever these treats come from, they’re certain to find a nice new home inside your belly.

Chocolate Crinkles

Just four ingredients are needed to make these light and chewy Christmas cookies: a big ol’ box of cake mix, some canola oil, eggs, and powdered sugar. About 10 minutes and 350 degrees should do the trick. Read the Chocolate Crinkles recipe at geniuskitchen.com.

Pumpkin Spice Rum Balls

A splash of Rumchata here, a tablespoon of rum there, and a teensy sip for self-confidence will produce some of the most decadent Christmas “cookies” you’ve ever tasted. If you’re going to indulge in these melt-in-your-mouth rum balls, be sure to hang your car keys up for the night. Get the recipe for these festive *hiccup* rum balls at www.willcookforsmiles.com.

Note: These no-bake booze cookies should be kept above the fridge and away from the little ones.

Cookies ‘n Cream Blossom Cookies

These Christmas cookies are a twist on the classic peanut butter blossom many of us are fond of. The Oreo cookie taste comes from the mountain of dark cocoa powder used to form the dough, but it’s the Cookies ‘n Cream Hershey’s Kisses that seal the deal. Be sure to grab an extra bag of Kisses as you’ll certainly “lose” a few to an invisible thief. Read this simple Christmas cookie recipe at www.delish.com.
