These cookies are practically a delicacy in my family. Every year, just before the start of Hanukkah I get text messages, emails, and calls from relatives begging me to send them a tin. The recipe originated from my great-grandmother, Eva, who would allow her children and grandchildren to help decorate them. Although I never got to meet my great-grandmother, I know she would appreciate that her cookies have transcended generations and become a family tradition. More than just a delicious dessert, these cookies are about spreading joy and spending time with loved ones. I hope they can bring fun and sweetness into your homes this holiday season!

The cookies on their own are soft and almost biscuit-like. The frosting takes them to the next level, adding the perfect balance of sweetness and a fun little crunch from the sprinkles. The pastel colors make them a beautiful and appealing addition to any holiday dessert table! In my family, these are Hanukkah cookies, but feel free to make them any theme by using different cookie cutters or creating your own twist on the decorations. Grab a sibling, friend, parent, or grandparent and get baking!

Dough:

  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
