The Top 5 Holiday Cookies

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Look, it doesn’t matter to me what you celebrate, cookies will always be relevant. If you do Christmas cookies on Christmas then great, if you do Jewish Cookies on Hannukah cool, if you’re not about anything of that nature but you are about cookies then that’s also cool. Cookies are meant for everyone. With the wild plethora of cookie recipes out there, here’s my top 5 favorite. Best part, is that they are all insanely easy.

It’s 1am, why am I watching this? Love your content!! But I will never bake or cook whatever you put up because I’m lazy af but still digging the aesthetically pleasing produced videos.

Sugar cookies! I cannot tell you how many times I've been asked for the recipe. Betty Crocker – I could never steal the glory from her…lol. I make mine especially thin. They are uber delush with hot lipton tea. Now, I REALLY want a batch!!

I love the Chewy Molasses Gingersnaps and had a recipe which I misplaced. Yours look very similar. Yum, I wanted a bite when you halved them. They too are wonderful with hot tea.

Cookies for Christmas!! I have a collection of many recipes. I hope one Christmas I can get my whole family under one roof. Between us all I have 6 girls. I imagine 1-3 of our fellas might want to get in on baking a few recipes. I can see my wee small kitchen now filled with all my precious lovelies ❤

Ginger snap cookies! Mmmmmm!!! If you like them, you'd probably also like shoo fly pie. 😋

Jacob Short says:

Hey Joshua where do I get those sexy rubber bottom bowls you use?

Sadie Girl says:

Good choices!!! The Old Standards are awesome! You are very funny. I like how you improvised on the orange scone video!!! Terrific video and I could actually hear you over the music. No more chipmunks. Tanx!

Annabelle B says:

Just found your channel yesterday; love the croissant recipe. My favorite cookies are Snickerdoodles and Gingersnaps. Thanks for sharing your baking skills with the rest of us. Happy New Year!

Class Punk says:

I noticed you got a baking channel and you are breaking out. I recently made homemade pizza and started breaking out and it seems like it happens whenever I dip too much into pasta or dough-related stuff, as much as I love baking, I think this grain-related food is doing it to the average person. Before that I was eating mostly meat and fat with very low carbs and my complexion was so good I was getting compliments from people.

Simon Dias says:

Those sugar cookies are sooooo good. I did a variation on 1 batch of them where I rolled them in chopped pecans and then maple sugar. Love the channel man. 👍

Kevin K says:

There are people who don't like molasses? that's sad. Especially after all the people who perished in the Great Boston Molasses Flood of 1919. Yeah, it really happened, look it up.

The Cursed Potion says:

I recommend red velvet crinkle cookies. they are a cookie with a texture somewhere between a cake and a cookie. Also if you want you could make them grinch cookies by using green food dye instead of red, and you could add a heart sprinkle onto them.
