With this time of year comes two things: fun and festive gatherings filling up the remainder of your December calendar + planning and preparing for the upcoming new year. Both require sweets, if you ask us. Whether you’re hosting a Christmas party or just want to be a rockstar guest, you’ll probably want to whip up something delicious for the holiday events you’ve got going. Enter, The Best Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies. And as you’re looking ahead to the New Year, perhaps you’ll consider starting and hosting a new Bible study (we make it really easy with the leader guide available for every Collide Bible Study book)… enter, Easy Cake Mix Sugar Cookies. Whichever recipe you choose, keep in mind that Jesus himself was a big fan of having snacks with friends. He often showed us that gathering around food is a powerful way to open people up to share and hear the stories that make us closer. So let’s follow His lead and get people together over a plate of something delicious!
We’ve scoured the internet in search of the absolute best cookie recipes to satisfy all the people in your life, from the healthy gal who’s not into chocolate or frosting (??!!) to the friend who really prefers brownies over a classic batch of cookies. What do they all have in common? They are tried and true, delicious, and most importantly – quick and easy! Because we want you to be able to spend less time bustling about in the kitchen and more time laughing and sharing with friends.
For the chocolate brownie lover… Fudgy Chocolate Brownie Cookies
It’s foreign to us, but some people are just not cookie people. For those ladies, this hybrid cookie/brownie creation might be just the ticket. We think the photo speaks for itself.
