Even in the midst of the busy holiday season, the Dynamos at South Florida-based public relations agency, Durée & Company, find any reason to celebrate together and #NationalBakeCookiesDay may be one of our favorite #HashtagHolidays. In celebration of the occasion, observed annually on December 18, the Dynamos shared some favorite cookie recipes with each other because a balanced diet is a cookie for each hand, right?
Here’s what’s cooking in our kitchens:
Durée’s Overnight Cookies:
As president of the company, Durée is one busy woman! That’s why baking her overnight cookies is so convenient. Growing up, she used to make these with her paternal grandmother and now she and her own daughter enjoy this recipe together. The best part about this recipe? Simply turn off the oven once you put them in. Give them a try!
Chrissy, VP of D&Co, shared with us a cookie that is popular on her German side of the family. In fact, she just baked these with her dad last weekend! Don’t be too skeptical about mixing in ingredients like black pepper, clove and nutmeg because the result is a real treat. Not your average cookie, but these will surely be winners at your holiday party.
Caroline’s Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies
Senior Account Executive Caroline is always holiday-ready with the perfect cookie. She and her mom make delectable Mint Chocolate Chip cookies every Christmas and pass them around to family, friends and neighbors. (This year, we’re requesting an extra batch for the office!)
Sarah’s Berry Shortbread
Outside of the office, Account Executive Sarah likes to spend her time experimenting in the kitchen. After she stumbled upon her grandma’s shortbread recipe, she knew she had to jazz it up a bit. Originally just a plain shortbread cookie, Sarah decided to add a hint of berries to create these visually appealing concoctions. Have a taste!
*Christmas Bonus: Durée’s Christmas Crack
This may not be a cookie, but we don’t discriminate. Layered with toffee and chocolate, this is a Dynamo fav!
So, grab some friends, pop open a bottle of wine and get to baking. You know what they say, if you give a gal a cookie…
