It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas and I have been busy in the kitchen planning for the holidays! Yesterday I was in the kitchen all day working on a holiday cookie platter in preparation for upcoming holiday cookie swaps and get-togethers. If you don't have any keto holiday cookie swaps planned, you should totally get on that!
I love most keto foods equally, but baking and party foods have always been my passion. I love preheating the oven first thing in the morning and baking all day long. It reminds me of the baking days I shared with my mom before Christmas. We would spend all day together cooking up a storm and I will never forget those days. I also want to pass those memories down to my own children.
One of our favorite recipes was always Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough Balls. Though they sound like they would be raw cookie dough balls they are actually cooked. I try to bake anything that has eggs in it, unless of course, it's the eggnog!
Let's get on with it!
I always try to make my cookies the same size so I usually form a square and have been known to measure it with a ruler to make my lines!
Once you have your balls formed don't forget to roll them in the cinnamon and sugar mixture!
Don't they look delightful!
One they are done baking let them cool before displaying them.
