Four Festive Desserts For Holiday Entertaining

The holidays are filled with festive parties, dinners and celebrations! Often times, the host or hostess is stuck in the kitchen prepping dishes and checking the oven every 30 minutes. With these quick and delicious cookie recipes from Krusteaz, you can spend more time enjoying your company and less time baking in the kitchen.

Can't get enough cookies this holiday season? Try these melt-in-your-mouth red velvet cookies. Get the kids involved and set up a cookie decorating station! 

If your Christmas dessert table needs a refresh, try this Deep Dish Peppermint Cookie. The red swirl is the perfect pop of color and the subtle peppermint flavor will have your guests reaching for a second slice.

Planning a New Year's Eve party? These milk and cookie shots are sure to be a hit! Prep them in the morning so the cookie shot "glasses" have plenty of time to set. Once frozen, fill them with milk for the kids or a spiked beverage for the adults. Indulge when the clock strikes midnight! 

Ring in the New Year on a sweet note with these fun Frosted Triple Chocolate Chunk Cookies. They're dressed up with vanilla buttercream frosting and rainbow sprinkles and will be ready in 20 minutes. No one will judge if you pair them with a glass of bubbly!
