This post on Christmas cookie Recipes is brought to you by Bing. All thoughts and words are my own. #ThisIsBing
I have quite a collection of go-to Christmas cookie recipes. Between my own that I’ve accumulated over the years plus family-favorites that I make every season, I’m never at a loss for something to bake. But sometimes I like to browse online and see if there’s anything new out there that catches my eye, or even an old favorite that I’ve forgotten about.
One way to look for great recipes is with Bing Smart Search. You don’t even need to open a browser, you can just swipe and tap to get started. The search results are really visual; you get a web preview without even having to click. I love that feature, especially when I’m searching for recipes or crafts. Cutting down on unnecessary clicks saves me time.
Bubbles wanted to make some kind of treat this week so I entered different variations of Christmas Cookie Recipes into a Bing Search. There are a number of them that we plan to make in the next few days, but with the rain, snow, and sleet that’s been coming down all week, I didn’t want to leave the house for ingredients. One of the recipes we saw was for Reindeer Treats, which I have made before but not in a few years.
Reindeer Treats are simple to make. You just need pretzels, chocolate kisses, and a topping like chocolate candies or nuts. Cover a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper and lay out the pretzels. Top each one with a chocolate kiss and put them in a 170 degree oven for 8 minutes. As soon as you remove them, top each chocolate kiss with a chocolate candy or nut. We used Gingerbread M&Ms and walnut halves.
I hope to share more Christmas cookie recipes that I find on the new Bing Search in the next couple of weeks. Maybe even some craft ideas, too! It’s kind of addicting to just type and tap all the beautiful pictures.
I could go on forever…. peppermint bark, sugar cookies, chocolate chip cookies, molasses cookies… I like cookies.
I have a couple of old family recipes that I love at Christmas time. They remind me of growing up and begging my mom to make them.
This is a nice idea for when you don’t have time to search your cookbooks
I am so not a baker, so this is really helpful. Thank you
Hmmm… just one?? 😉 I love peanut butter cookies, oatmeal and chocolate chip, snickerdoodles… OMG… I want to go start making them now!!
I am partial to regular old chocolate chip cookies. But I love anything fruity, too. Especially lemon. Thanks for all the great info.
Thanks for the infl. I love making Christmas cookies w/the fam.!
I use Bing all the time, I love how it doesn’t include all those pesky Google Adwords links!
oh this is very timely! I am starting to learn how to bake and now I know where to look for recipes!
Super cool. And all those cookies make hungry. LOL
Oh how fun is that! I want to try some new cookies this year, matter of fact! Those look fantastic!
Bing has been my preferred search option for some time now. I love using Bing!
Unfortunately I don’t have Windows 8.1 so I can’t use Bing right now. But that cookie recipe looks great! Thanks!
I only bake the cookies that you just cut and bake. But thank you for reminding me about the wonderful features of Bing search. I’m so used to using Google that I always forget about how much I love Bing for images.
I don’t need to make cookies but these look so good!
I’m probably a sugar-addict but my favorite thing about christmas cookies isnt the cookie recipe but the frosting recipe! I loveeee homemade frosting!
I might have to agree with you there, Emily! Sometimes with cupcakes, I don’t even eat the bottom – I just break them off at the wrapper-line and eat the top with frosting 😀
I love the Christmas orange cookies my mom makes each year! Or anything chocolate of course!
Wow! Look at all the images that come up when you search! Those reindeer treats do look yummy!
Love the reindeer treats
I have some Christmas pretzels here. I will try and make those cute Reindeer Treats cookies!
