Chocolate Crinkle Top Cookies

I don’t go crazy making Christmas cookies but I do have two or three favorites that I like to make each year. My Mom takes care of the sugar cookies. She has a lot more patience than I do for rolling and decorating. I like to make these Chocolate Crinkle Top Cookies because they’re easy. No rolling or decorating required.

We always make up a few extra batches of Christmas cookies so I can give them away as gifts. We often give them to our mailman, UPS driver and FedEx drivers. They stop by our house with deliveries almost every day and it’s nice to give something back to say thank you.

Cookie serving suggestions

When you give cookies as gifts, you can give them on a pretty Christmas plate. But, I find that it’s so much easier to use those cookie boxes. Last time I used a plate, the plate almost tipped and dumped the cookies on the ground. With a box, you can seal the top with no worries of accidents.

You may also want to try my Peanut Butter Fudge or my Buttercream Mint Candies. Those are huge family favorites around the holidays as well.
