Five Christmas Cookies One Dough

Whip up a basic cookie dough and then throw in some add ins. I'm giving you five options, but there are endless options.

PREP TIME: 35 minutes

COOK TIME: 10 minutes

TOTAL TIME: 45 minutes

SERVINGS: 43 cookies


3/4 cup butter, room temperature

1/4 cup Shortening (Crisco)

1 1/2 cups Granulated Sugar

2 Eggs

2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract

2 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour

1 box (3.4 ounces) Vanilla Instant Pudding Mix

1 teaspoon Baking Powder

1/2 teaspoon Salt


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. In a mixing bowl, add in the butter, shortening, and sugar. Mix on medium until light and fluffy.

3. Add in the vanilla and the eggs one at a time until incorporated. Scrape down the sides and beat to combine any remaining egg mixture.4. Add in the flour, pudding mix, baking powder, and salt. Beat on medium until incorporated.

5. Divide the cookies into 5 portions or more. Each will be a different cookie.

6. FIRST DOUGH: Scoop using a small cookie scoop and roll in sprinkles of colored sugar.

7. SECOND DOUGH: Scoop using a small cookie scoop and bake. Allow to cool fully and then frost.

8. THIRD DOUGH: Scoop out. Press your finer into the center of the cookie and form a nice hole to add jam in. Add in desired jam. I used raspberry.

9. FOURTH DOUGH: Add in chocolate chips, white chips, m&'s, or snicker bites for baking, cinnamon chips, whatever you prefer. Scoop and bake.

10. FIFTH DOUGH: Scoop out and bake. Once baked, remove from the oven and let cool for 3-5 minutes. Place chocolate candies on top to decorate them.

11. Place the scooped dough into the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool 10 minutes before place on a piece of paper towel to cool.

12. Wrap up in your homemade cookie boxes and send to your friends and family.
