6 Christmas Cookie Trends

Here are 6 cookie trends this holiday season that I’ve noticed from perusing the web.

1.  Chocolate and orange.  What a great combination and they come together perfectly in this cookie, Candied Orange Peel & Chocolate Chunk Cookies by Goodies a Volonte.

2.  Jazzed-up snickerdoodles. Snickerdoodles are a classic cookie, but this season they are being jazzed-up with brown butter, sea salt and caramel.  Try this delicious version–Toffee Speckled Snickerdoodles by Very Culinary.
