Christmas Cookie Recipes Welsh Cookies by It's a Keeper

This past weekend it was snowing, which seemed like the perfect time to pop on some Christmas carols and start baking!  I scoured my pile of Christmas cookie recipes and came up with these Welsh Cookies.

My friend Jen M.  brought them to a cookie exchange that I hosted a few years ago.  I loved how light and flavorful they were.  Welsh Cookies always seemed daunting to me because you need to fry them.  But, when I tried the recipe for myself, they were really quite easy to make.

My good friends at Good Cook sent me a Cookie Baking kit to test out.

It was filled with their Sweet Creations by Good Cook products, including:

I loved all of the products!  My favorite, though, had to be the Flex Cookie Turner.  It was just the right size for these Welsh Cookies!

You can get 5% off any of the Sweet Creations products on the Good Cook site with the discount code COOKIES. This is on top of the site-wide discounts going on.

There will also be a giveaway on the Good Cook page where you can win 1 of 10 cookie kits (just like the photo above) beginning on Dec 17. All you have to do is give a “like” one (or more) of the cookies featured on the site to enter.  I, of course, would recommend my Welsh Cookies (hint, hint) but you can vote for as many as you’d like. It’s not a voting contest, so no need to worry about that.

  1. I’ve never heard of Welsh Cookies, but they sound mighty tasty!

  2. I had never heard of Welsh cookies either. Sound pretty good to me. One thing that confused me was when you said “Fry” them. I read and reread it several times. I wouldn’t really call that frying. ;)
