Our #CookieModster party is coming to a close, but before we box up our treats and sweep away the crumbs, we’re bringing you one last post, full of sugary goodness!
Ginger Snap Whoopie Pies from The Faux Martha
Oh, snap! The only thing better than one spice-laden ginger snap cookie is two of them sandwiching a creamy filling. Some might argue that whoopie pies aren’t technically cookies, but we bet non-believers will be too preoccupied with these sweet ‘n’ spicy morsels to care. Cookie fun fact — whoopie pies are known around the Pittsburgh area as “gobs”. (Cue the obligatory G.O.B. gif.)
Spiced Cocoa Polvorones from The Bojon Gourmet
Another cookie that goes by many names, these polvorones/Russian tea cookies/snowballs/Mexican wedding cakes are infinitely delicious, no matter what you call them! This recipe puts a gluten-free spin on the classic. Featuring a tasty combo of almond flour, cocoa, cayenne, and cinnamon, these wintry treats will have you craving them year ’round.
Festive Meringue Cookies from This Silly Girl’s Life
Who can resist these cute little trees? Meringue is gluten-free, and totally impressive. Pro-tip for getting those egg-white peaks to form: use a glass mixing bowl, as plastic can hold on to oils that will inhibit the whipping process. Once you master the technique, you’ll have a whole forest of brightly colored trees decked with frosting and sprinkles, ready to wish you and yours the happiest of holidays!
