Whether bakers are tired of the cutout sugar cookies or the simple chocolate chip cookies, these pie cookie recipes will be the hit of the holiday season. Straight from the Reynolds Kitchens, these desserts will have everyone wowed with the taste and presentation. While the flavors taste like favorite pies, no one has to worry about the potential of the dreaded soggy bottom.
The holiday season is filled with the sound of a whirling stand mixer, the aromas from the oven, and a plate full of desserts sitting in the center of the table. While some people might have their special family recipe, sometimes a new treat can spark a little extra merriment at the end of the meal.
For the holiday season, Reynolds Kitchens are serving a new take on the traditional holiday cookies, pie cookie recipes. These ideas transform the traditional pie slice into a bite sized treat. To be clear, it is not a mini pie or a tartlet. It is a cookie that has all the pie flavors.
The three recipes are Eggnog Pie Cookie, Caramel Pecan Pie Cookie, and Chocolate Peppermint Cookie. Each dessert has a nod to class holiday flavors. What is great about these recipes is that a few ideas from each dessert could even be repurposed in other treats.
For example, the Eggnog Pie Cookie has an eggnog frosting. Why not use that component in a cupcake recipe. The flavor works well with a sugar cookie, but there are a plethora of applications.
The classic flavor combination for the season is the Chocolate Peppermint Pie Cookie. The sweet with the refreshing mint is quite enjoyable. Plus, this recipe does not go too far into the mint side. It is smart for the flavor to be there, but not feel like eating a breath mint.
Lastly, the Caramel Pecan Pie Cookie might change how people look at the traditional pecan pie. The toasted pecans with the sweet caramel is quite enjoyable. Maybe a caramel drizzle on that pie might transform that other dessert recipe.
These ideas and many others can be found on the Reynolds Kitchens website. Plus, make sure to stock up on that Reynolds Parchment paper. After all, no one wants those cookies to get stuck to a baking sheet. That scenario is worse than a soggy bottom pie.
