These Christmas Crinkle cookies are some of my daughter’s favorite cookies to bake. She has been baking with me ever since she was a baby. I would set her in a bouncy seat on the counter and she would hold the spoon while I baked my go-to chocolate chip cookies. Then as she got older, she helped put the ingredients in the bowl and would turn on the mixer…now she creates recipes on her own and runs the whole show!
We both love these simple cookies because they are easy to make but they turn out so pretty! These red velvet crinkle cookies are great for Christmas cookie swaps!
My nieces recently visited and we enjoyed baking and eating red velvet and chocolate crinkle cookies!
