I have a love/hate relationship with cookies. I love eating them; I hate making them. Baking is something I do more out of necessity (desserts are my most viewed posts) versus really love to do. Thus, I try to keep my desserts simple, and cookies, while not difficult to make, are more hands-on and time-consuming so I rarely make them. Even though I still pin plenty of cookie recipes, I just have no intention of ever making them … until now.
Shortbread cookies are my favorite. Something about their crispness and buttery goodness hits all the right notes for me. But they are cookies … so I never make them, which may or may not be an actual blessing, since I don’t have to battle their temptation either. But then I saw these gorgeous shortbread cookie bites on Cooky Classy.
Immediately, I knew they were going on my holiday treat platter this year. Not only were they absolutely adorable, but a bite-size morsel is perfect for the holidays, because they leave plenty of room for me (and you) to nosh on everything else too. Plus, these are more cut-and-bake, so the process for both baking and decorating is much simpler. Woot-Woot!
These guys are unbelievably tasty and incredibly addictive, like gobble them up by the fistfuls good. They also freeze well, so make a batch now and freeze for your holiday festivities. They also make great gifts too. I can’t imagine anyone being unhappy to receive a container full of these crispy, bite-size yumminess. Also, these are year-round cookies. You can change the funfetti colors to match different holidays or use regular funfetti for every day cookies.
Be a hero this Christmas and whip up a batch of these delightful treats for your loved ones. You’ll most definitely make Santa’s nice list this year. 😀
