Illinois’ Favorite Christmas Cookie Is An Iconic Holiday Treat
From peanut butter blossoms, to raspberry cheesecake, to cut-out cookies, where does Illinois stand on the best Christmas cookie for the holidays?
Hands down, I freakin' love gingerbread cookies. Think about it: they're lightly spiced, have a warm flavor of gingerbread mixed in, and is the PERFECT match for a cold wintery night.
There are many delicious Christmas cookies that get baked in Illinois every year, but some of the best include:
Sugar cookies: These are a total classic. If your parents never made these growing up, get to baking! They're a big hit at any Christmas party. They can even be decorated with icing or sprinkles, too!
Spritz cookies: A scrumptious, buttery cookie is a favorite in many homes across Illinois. You know those tins of cookies you can find at the store? Yeah, Spritz cookies are inside of them and come in various shapes, like stars, snowflakes, and trees.
Peppermint bark: YUMMMMM! Layering melted chocolate and crushed peppermint candy on top of a cookie sheet never sounded so fun... and mouthwatering. Once it hardens, break it into pieces and enjoy as a tasty holiday treat!
So, what's Illinois' favorite Christmas cookie? PEPPERMINT PATTIES!
Yup, if you have a sweet tooth and craving some chocolatey goodness, look no further.
There are so many different Christmas cookies to make in Illinois, try some of these classic favorites listed above! If you don't like any of those, a raspberry cheesecake cookie from Subway will also do the job - am I wrong?
