I decided to make some different Christmas cookies this year. Aside from the 1 batch that my husband and children love, the Peanut Blossom, I took a different route. No thumbprints, or mexican wedding cakes or cut-out cookies found here.
I found some great ideas surfing the web. ENJOY
Here is a recipe from my unconventional Christmas cookies 2013.
I used the holiday Oreo cookies in this recipe so they would have a red, Christmas-y look. They turned out so soft and really delicious. Cream cheese in cookies is a great idea.
original recipe found here
1 box white cake mix
1 stick butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup Oreo cookie chunks
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Combine the cake mix, melted butter, egg and vanilla. Beat until a soft dough forms. Add the cream cheese and beat until combined.
Stir in the chocolate chips and then gently mix in the Oreo cookie chunks. Refrigerate dough for at least 30 minutes.
Scoop onto a cookie sheet and bake for 9-11 minutes. The cookies will be very soft. Let them sit on the cookie sheet for about 2 minutes. Then transfer to wire rack to cool.
