Here are some Christmas Cookie Tray Suggestions
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 sticks(12 Tbs.) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs
12 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped into chips or 2 cups store-bought chocolate chips or 2 cups semisweet chocolate chunks
1 cup finely chopped nuts (optional) such as walnuts, pecans or peanuts
preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment or silicone mats.
Whisk together the flour, salt, and baking soda.
In mixer bowl, beat the butter and peanut butter until smooth. Add the sugars and beat until well-blended. Beat in the vanilla. Add the eggs one at a time, beating for 1 minute after each egg. Reduce the mixer speed to low and add the dry ingredients in 3 portions, mixing only until each addition is incorporated. On low speed mix in the chocolate and nuts.
Spoon the dough by slightly rounded tablespoonfuls onto the baking sheets, leaving about 2 inches between spoonfuls.
Bake the cookies, one sheet at a time 10-12 minutes, or until they are brown at the edges and golden in the center. Cool 1 minute; transfer to racks to cool.
Repeat with the remainder of the dough, cooling the baking sheets between batches.

Hi Lorraine, Happy New Year.
What a scrumptious looking cookie tray. So tempting. Reminds me of our Diwali platters laden with mithai and dry fruits. 🙂
Hope your new year is blessed with health, happiness and peace.

A perfect choice of cookies.
If I were visiting I would take a wedding cake(?) one. This year I only made my 4 favorite kinds and in the end didn't miss the others.

What a lovely display of yumminess! Something for everyone 🙂 I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas, Lorraine!
Christmas treats like these are what I look forward to most! Your cookie presentation is beautiful on the tiered silver tray and your goodies look divine!! I've always thought the Russian tea cakes look so elegant and pretty. I'm making gingerbread boys, Merry cherry fudge, Martha Washingtons, and pretzel bark this year.
Have a blessed Christmas,
That is the prettiest cookie tray. A nice variety there too. I'll take one of each 🙂
So you freeze your cookies in tins? Do you put them inside anything before putting them in the tins?
