I have a super simple holiday cookie idea for you today. This cookie is just 3 ingredients, that’s right, 3! Pillsbury® asked me along with a few more of my food blogging friends to develop some quick and easy ideas for holiday cookies using their pre-made refrigerated cookie doughs. Click over here to Pillsbury to see the other delicious cookie creations. I chose to use their sugar cookie dough, and added my own special touch.
I simply kneaded in some finely chopped hazelnuts. Then I formed my cookie dough back into the same shape that the original cookie dough log was, and sliced my cookies with a sharp knife. After I placed the cookies on my cookie sheet, I sprinkled them with some sparkly raw sugar.
The raw sugar gave a special little sweet crunch, and the hazelnuts gave great flavor. This is a delicious and simple cookie, and a great alternative to chocolaty and sweetly frosted holiday cookies. My family couldn’t get enough of these, and they were gone so quick I only got 2 of them.
This recipe couldn’t be easier, and would be so fun to have your little ones help out with. My son loved kneading the nuts in the cookie dough and then forming the cookie dough log. Kids love to get their hands dirty in the kitchen.
