Holiday cookie exchange recipes

We're having a cookie exchange at work this year instead of our normal potluck holiday party. My signature holiday cookie is a linzer tart but they are a lot if work and we have to make 3 dozen for the exchange. Plus I'm 7 months pregnant and feeling a little lazier than usual. Does anyone have a go to cookie recipe that's yummy, quick and easy that they'd be willing to share?

Tha ms!!

I made the dough for a cranberry/white chocolate/macadamia cookie (I freeze the dough) and I think its going to be a hit. Its a drop cookie so its easy. It got really good reviews.

I literally just made cranberry/white chocolate/ macadamia nut cookies last night for a cookie exchange this morning........and I'm 36 weeks pregnant!!! I was really looking for something not too time consuming. I just couldn't stand by the counter for a long time!

I used this recipe:

I've also made these, except I omit the raisins and add white choc chips, and everyone loves them:

I just shared this recipe on another cookie thread. It is the easiest recipe ever and everybody raves about both the taste and look.

Preheat oven to 275
Place a round pretzel (can find these at Aldi) on cookie sheet lined with parchment or wax paper and put a Hershey Hug Kiss or Candy Cane Kiss in the center of each pretzel.
Heat in oven for just 2 minutes
Remove from oven and top each Kiss with a M&M. I use red and green for Christmas.
Slide the parchment paper off the cookie sheet and let cool for at least two hours.

The stripes from the Hugs make it look like you have painted stripes on each cookie. And most people love the sweet/salty taste. I recently had knee replacement surgery and these are my go to cookie this year because I have limited ability to stand.

We've done the pretzel, kiss, m&m thing. It's easy and great with kids.

I will toss in the family fudge recipe that is so quick and easy that everything else is too much of a hassle.

3 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 can condensed milk
1 tsp almond extract

Dry mix:
1 cup each of:
marshmallows
raisins
shredded coconut
chopped walnuts

Pre-mix the dry ingrediants in a bowl and set aside. Open the can of condensed milk and pour the almond extract right on top of it.

Melt the chocolate chips. When fully melted, stir in the condensed milk and extract. It will start to thicken very quickly. Once combined, fold in the dry ingrediants mix. Keep stirring until everything is fully covered. Drop by teaspoon onto aluminum foil (on cookie trays for ease). Let harden. Stick in a container and you're good for weeks!!! We usually put the cookie sheets outside to cool if the weather is cool enough and if the outside critters won't help themselves.

Cake box cookies are awesome.

One box of cake mix, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup of oil or butter.

Once baked we frost them. We like Red Velvet cake mix and cream cheese frosting and then we add sprinkles to nake them festive.

I made a new cookie this year, one I sort of invented, I'm sure it's out there somewhere, but I've never seen a "recipe" for it.

1 box of Nilla Wafers
About 1/2 cup of finely crushed peppermint candies
3/4 to 1 Cup Vanilla Frosting
3 oz Vanilla Candy Coating melted with about 1/2 tsp vegetable oil (stir to combine once melted

Combine peppermint candies and vanilla frosting, spread between 2 wafers and dip one end into the melted candy coating.

I also sprinkled some peppermint candy on the candy coating after dipping just for prettyness, but you could use sprinkles or colored sugar just as easily.

We've done these as well and my DD turns them into whoopie pies by putting icing between two cookies. Yummy!

And Colorado - those sound great! May need to do those as well.

Go easy and go for chocolate chip cookies, snickerdoodles, or chocolate dipped something, like pretzels if that is allowed.

They turned out pretty darn good if I do say so myself! The frosting makes the Nilla Wafers just a little soft, and cuts the harsh peppermint flavor. Now I just need to give them away before I eat them all!

Yes, the cake mix cookies, linked in the thread above, are so easy to make. When you use different cake mixes and different add-ins, they always seem more complicated than they are. But they are so easy to make!
