I know I’m a nerd when it comes to anything food related, but I look forward to Christmas Cookie Exchanges as much as I look forward to Christmas morning!
My mom has attended one with her friends for years, and it’s a tradition I want to carry on each year with my friends! My mom would always come home with a huge tub of different cookies. She’d put them in the freezer so that we could take some out each night throughout the holidays and enjoy them for longer. Growing up my mom always made the same three Christmas cookies; snowballs, buckeye balls, and jelly filled thumbprints. I ate the snowballs because the were coated in lots of powdered sugar. And I ate the buckeye balls because peanut butter and chocolate is the best combination ever. But those thumbprints? Well, I left those alone. The dough was never sweet enough, and that mint jelly was anything but satisfying. It was hilarious!! The party was so fun, even if I didn’t win BINGO. You know what I did? We used M&Ms as the markers and we got to eat them at the end. I shoved all of mine in my mouth!! Cool, huh?

Plus a recipe video. These Peanut Butter Turtle Thumbprint Cookies are taking things up a notch though, because they start with a peanut butter cookie base. They have a super simple caramel filling, a chocolate drizzle and a sprinkling of chopped peanuts — I like to use salted, roasted peanuts for that crunchy, salty contrast to all the sweetness!”
