I dressed these Cream Cheese Cookies in red for Valentine’s Day, but you can dress them in any color you like, or even leave them plain. The choice is yours. All I suggest is that you make them right away because they’ll soon become your go-to favorite cookie! Crunchy and creamy! Oh yeah!!!
When we got married, and Mark and I started our own family, there were certain traditions I wanted to continue from when I was a little girl and hopefully pass along to our two boys. These cookies were one of the things I incorporated throughout the years to fondly rekindle my joyous Christmas memories. I am happy to report that our boys (now grown) feel exactly the same way about these cookies as I did, and still do to this day. Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without Santa’s Favorite Sugar Cookies.
I adapted this recipe from one I shared back in 2010 called pecan snowball cookies. I was going to do a recipe re-do where I updated the photos in the original post. However, before I knew it, my brain was adding the festive red and green elements of pistachios and dried cranberries, and omitting the pecans altogether. The result is utterly delicious. I do hope you’ll make these Buttery Sweet Pistachio Cranberry Snowball Cookies. I know you’ll love them just as much as we do!
I hope all these tips and tricks will help, not hinder, your desire to make this cornucopia crusted pumpkin pie. They’re not meant to intimidate you, they’re meant to inspire and bring out the food artist within YOU! You can do this!!
Every year for Christmas it’s tradition for me to make my family’s favorite sugar cookie. I’ve shared the recipe in the past (way back in 2010) and dubbed it “Santa’s Favorite Cookie.” This year, I decided to mix things up a little so I used the same recipe (basically), and made pumpkin shaped sugar cookies for my family as a special surprise treat they didn’t see coming! Needless to say, the cookies were gobbled up quickly. 🙂
I’ve never been a fan of candy corn candy, but I do love the colors. This is why I wanted to come up with a colored pound cake recipe which would replicate those fun, festive and bright autumn colors, but would still hold true to a rich, buttery, pound cake flavor.

I’m sharing this recipe for Savory Pumpkin Sage Biscuits in honor of #PumpkinWeek 2017. I’ve paired the pumpkin with the subtle woodsy flavor of fresh sage, but feel free to substitute a different fresh herb or even dried herbs from your pantry. However, If you choose to use a dried herb, cut back on the quantity you use as the flavor of dried herbs are considerably stronger than their fresh counterparts.

I found the recipe for sweet potato cookies in a small Amish pamphlet cookbook while visiting the gift shop in the St. Louis capital building around this same time last year. I tweaked the recipe only slightly here and there. I omitted the nuts, substituted allspice for ground cloves, and increased the brown sugar by half.
