We interrupt this Thanksgiving meal trail to get in on the Cookie Week posts over on Twitter. Oh heavens there are a mess of cookies being posted on Twitter and I can’t wait to try them. Especially those that involve maple syrup and bacon. Oh yeah. You heard right. Bacon in cookies. I still have yet to try the bacon and maple cupcakes making the rounds so maybe during the holiday I will try those too. It is going to take all my strength and willpower to stay on Weight Watchers during the holidays but I am up to the challenge. I think. I hope. Aw heck maybe I should just give in now. Just give me a minute.
Ok, back in control now. These are sweet recipes I’ve posted previously but would be great for the holidays.
Mexican Hot Chocolate cookies
It is sad, I know, that before I made this recipe I had never touched Mexican hot chocolate. As far as I know. Now my grandmother used to give me hot chocolate when I was a kid and would ask for coffee so she could have slipped some of this in without my knowledge. She was awesome like that.
No Chill Sugar Cookies
Now we are on to some cookies I tried to recreate from my youth. One of my aunts used to make the best sugar cookies ever. They weren’t cut out or anything just round and rolled in sugar. I know she got them out of a cookbook but I haven’t found the exact recipe. Yet. I may have to break down and call her to ask for it.
Jomancillo aka Dulce de Leche
Ok now I know Jomancillo isn’t a cookie but it’s oh so delicious I couldn’t leave it out. We have this every New Year’s Eve along with Bunuelo’s (funnel cake like cookie). My family has made this for as long as I can remember. I remember my Uncle Johnny being at the house and making this. I just scoop it up with a spoon and eat it like that – real classy I know. My mom has it on bread and eats it like a sandwich. Try it if you haven’t. Heavenly!
