Jolly ol' Saint Nick will be sliding down chimneys soon, and you’ll want to make sure you have the tastiest cookies around to fill up his hungry belly. (It’s not compared to a bowl full of jelly for nothing!)
Or, if you’re more worried about your own Christmas cravings, that’s fine too! (And completely understandable.) Here are some of Seattle’s tastiest holiday cookies.
There’s nothing quite like the spicy zing of a great gingerbread cookie at Christmas. Grand Central Bakery is offering deliciously adorable decorated Holiday Gingerbread Cookies this year. Bonus: For every decorated cookie/gift bag you buy, they’ll donate 50 cents to Treehouse or Human Solutions. Because, after all, who doesn’t love a #CookieForACause?
If you want to shock Santa’s taste buds, go for the Orange Habanero Chocolate Chip Cookie at the delightfully cute Hello Robin cookie shop. It’s a great combination of sweetness, citrus notes, and spiciness all in one little flavor bomb. My other favorites at this blue and white bakery are the Chocolate Chip and Mackles’more, a s’more cookie with Theo chocolate chunks.
Macarons are beautiful any time of year, but I especially love them at Christmas time! They make beautiful gifts and liven up any holiday celebration. Try the special holiday flavors at Le Panier this year, including Ginger, Candy Cane, Chestnut and Orange Ganache Macarons!
Not only are the Ugly Sweaters Sugar Cookies from Little Rae’s Bakery delightfully cute (and not ugly at all), but they’re also safe for little elves with nut allergies! Little Rae’s is a completely peanut-free and nut-free bakery. This isn’t a physical bakery, but you can order these cute little guys online.
At this Tom Douglas favorite, they’ve put together everything you need to create beautiful holiday sugar cookies. Kits come with 12 baked sugar or gingerbread cookies, four bags of royal icing, and sparkling sugar.
