This year, I'm forgoing all my traditional holiday cookie recipes, and making nothing but these: Triple Layer Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cups. Try saying that three times fast.
Half Baked Harvest has nailed it this season. How come? Well, A: Chocolate makes people happy, B: Peanut butter makes people full, C: Cookie dough releases endorphins - so basically, all the check marks you need to have an awesome party.
Best of all, you can make a bunch of these in advance and keep them in the freezer. Just make sure to place them in an airtight bag, and you'll be good to go all month long
Oh and since they're quite filling, you can plan to make one per friend (and if someone wants more, you make them feel ashamed!) which will save you time.
For me, the holidays are all about ending the evening with a touch of sweet, and if your guests are too full to eat them, let them take it as a snack for the road. Win!
