I don’t usually make cookies. I usually make cakes. If I can get away with it, I make one-bowl cakes. It’s not because I don’t love cookies, it’s because I dislike chaos. The problem lies, really, in the newest member of my kitchen staff. She’s a fantastic baker. When my sous-chef cracks an egg into a cup, she can pour it into the bowl like nobody’s business. And man, can she handle a whisk! I can usually turn the cake baking completely over to my trusty assistant.
Cookies are another story. For some reason, cookies invite disorder. Instead of the well orchestrated pouring of cake batter into a pan, cookies result in a mad grab of multisized cookie balls, violently rolled and then squashed flat by little fingers onto the cookie sheet. Making cookies turns into a race to the sticky finish.
And that’s saying nothing about the rest of the household. When cookies are being prepared, people swarm into the kitchen (and by numbers this family is officially a swarm), pinching off fingerfuls of raw dough to eat, hovering, distracting my staff so that things are dropped, left out of the recipe, thrown..
But, it’s Christmas. And there is no Christmas without cookies.
Over the next few weeks you are going to see A LOT of Christmas cookies on this blog. I’ve actually assembled a team to eat all the cookies I’m making so that I don’t accidentally eat them all myself. They’re all going to be as easy or even easier than this recipe.
These are made with gluten-free Bisquick. I love that Bisquick comes in gluten-free. Our cookie baking needs as many shortcuts as possible. Betty Crocker has tons of great recipes for gluten-free treats on their site, and the recipe is adapted from here. I added cinnamon to the cookies because I wanted to keep the Snicker Doodle taste. The cookies themselves are rolled in Christmas sprinkles.
