It is Christmas Time and I’m ready to make some Christmas Cookies! But the holiday season can get crazy so I’m sharing with you my quick and easy Christmas cookies. And the best part is… they are delicious!
Hope you love these holiday treats as much as I do!
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO STORE THESE IF I MAKE THEM AHEAD OF TIME?
Holidays get a little crazy, so the more you can use your time wisely and make things ahead of time, the better.
The Andes Mint Cookies are the best cookies to make ahead of time, because they are delicious cold. If you plan to make them more than a week ahead of serving them we recommend storing them.
The best way to store and preserve them, is to put them in an airtight container, and put them in the freezer.
The day before serving them, we recommend removing them from the freezer and putting them on the counter, or in the fridge for 24 hours.
You could also reheat them in the oven a little bit, just to make them warm, but it will melt the chocolate a little bit.
