This is another product of my winter baking weekend from a couple weeks ago. This one took a bit more time and effort than the cupcakes in the previous post, but they were just as delicious — and they were in honor of a friend’s birthday, so even more worthwhile!
I used the sugar cookie recipe from Colleen Patrick-Goudreau’s The Joy of Vegan Baking, and a tutorial from Sprinkle Bakes that I found on Pinterest. I did not create such flawless spirals, which I think was mainly because I ended up rolling my dough too loosely. I’ll try to roll them tighter the next time. The thing I really liked about this process was that the cookies were slice and bake. Once the dough is rolled out and layered, you can cut them as thick as you want before you bake. I used AirBake pans, too — I swear by these for making soft, unburnt cookies.
What’s your favorite holiday cookie recipe? Do you have a traditional one you use, or do you change it up every year?
