Megan Rogers
Must try Christmas cookies

It’s almost Christmas time! Snow, holiday movies, hot chocolate and cozy blankets—it is the best time of the year. And do you know what the best way to kick off the Christmas season is? Cookies! Here are my favorite cookie recipes that I make every year. 

No bake cookies 


– 4 ounces of butter 

– 2 cups of sugar 

– 3-4 teaspoons of peanut butter 

– 3 cups of oats 

– ½ cup of milk 

– 1 cup of chocolate chips 

– 1 teaspoon of vanilla 


-Place chocolate chips, peanut butter, oats and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. 

-Combine butter, milk and sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil and boil for one minute. 

-Pour hot mixture into the other mixture and combine well (make sure chocolate chips are fully melted). 

-Drop by spoonful onto a wax paper-lined cookie sheet. 

-Place in the fridge to chill (best-eaten cold). 

Peanut butter kisses

– 1 cup of flour 

– ½ teaspoon of salt

– In a large bowl, combine butter and peanut butter until well blended. Once combined, add the sugar, brown sugar, egg, milk and vanilla then combine.

– In a separate bowl mix together flour, baking soda and salt. 

– Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture and combine. 

– Shape doubt into one-inch balls and roll in sugar. 

-Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. 

-Place Hershey Kisses on cookies immediately after taking them out of the oven. 

Rolo pretzels
