Have I professed my love for the holiday season enough yet? No? Awesome, cause I have more gushing to do, and it’s not just over these Simple Spiced Linzer Cookies.
I walked into Walmart the other day and seriously, it smelled like Christmas. Smelled.Like.Christmas. It made me so instantly giddy I had to Snap (@asimplepantry) about it. I pretty much haven’t stopped Snapping since. But I’m crazy like that. Did you check out the Snaps for my One Pot Penne Alla Vodka, Cake Mix Cookie Bar Sandwiches, and Chili Cheese Tacos?
And omg you guys. Everyone sending me their photos of getting their Christmas decor up already has me sooooooo jealous. I need to get on that train, ASAP, especially since I am heading to Minnesota in mid-December, which means I barely get one month of enjoying my own decor.
Since life is so crazy busy right now, I am enjoying several of my favorite make-ahead recipes, especially cookies. Because you know I like treats on demand. Easy to please, I am.
It really gets me into the holiday spirit to be able to whip up, store, and then bake my fave cookies whenever I feel like it, so you just know I am turning to Reynolds Cookie Baking Sheets to keep my dough in working order. I freaking love Reynolds Cookie Baking Sheets. They LAY FLAT zomg, which if you’ve ever dealt with a roll of parchment paper…yeah, the struggle is real. I wrap up all my cookie dough in the baking sheets and either refrigerate or freeze them until I am ready to get baking, in which case I can quickly thaw, unwrap, roll out, and get to work. I can even pop that sheet right in my pan, bake, then slide the whole thing onto a cooling rack. They are even oven safe to 420 degrees, so bake away!
I love no hassle, and no mess. It’s the cure for my clumsy, I swear.
But when it comes to these simple spiced linzer cookies, everyone is a winner. Very few ingredients, which you undoubtedly have on hand, a few minutes of prep, and a few minutes of baking and you look like you’re a gourmet cookie person.
Is there a word for a cookie person? Someone please tell me so I stop sounding stupid over here, kthx?
