Kris Kringles are the perfect homemade gift for friends and family… everyone loves them and the recipe makes a pretty large batch. They also freeze really well. After they’ve completely cooled, I just pop them in a large freezer bag and lay it flat in the freezer, for up to one month. Madelyn and I did some baking on Sunday and I’m freezing the cookies to share with co-workers, a little closer to Christmas.

When baking cookies, I usually line the baking sheet with parchment paper. Parchment paper helps cookies to bake evenly, so I have a perfect batch every time. Recently, I’ve been using a new-to-me product- Reynolds Cookie Baking Sheets. These baking sheets are pre-cut baking sheets that lay flat.

The baking sheets worked so well! I was able to easily slide the cookies off of the baking sheet without having to use grease or spray. I also definitely appreciated the easy clean-up!
