Grinch Recipes

These Grinch Christmas Cookie Recipe are not only simple to make, but we love that they don’t make enough to feed an army like some recipes do. That allows us to use moderation when it comes to cookie consumption during December!
cream butter, sugar and egg

First cream together 2 sticks of butter, 1 egg, and 2/3 cup of sugar.

add cinnamon and vanilla

Now add 1 teas vanilla and 1/4 teas cinnamon.

add ground almonds

Grind up almonds so you get 2/3 cup (sliced, slivered, etc.). We use a mini food processor, but you could just as easily put them in a Ziploc bag and roll a rolling pin back and fourth until they are ground up.

Note: If you don’t use nuts in your house, just add 1/2 cup extra flour to compensate.

add flour

Add 2 1/4 cup flour and mix well.

dye dough green

Add green food coloring to get your grinchy green color. Our family is cutting back of artificial food coloring so we used this natural food coloring, but you will get a more intense flavor if you don’t. (Picture is using the natural food coloring)


wrap up dough and chill 2-3 hours

Now wrap up your dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 3 hours.

roll out the dough

On floured surface, roll chilled dough until you can work it. We used a Linzer Cookie Cutter (only $5.99) to make these.

Remember: You will need to cut out as many bottoms as you do tops (the ones with the circle cut out of the center.  Using the right cutter this goes really fast!

It will make about 20 “sandwich” cookies.

bake

Put cookies on parchment lined cookie sheets and bake at 250 F for 11 minutes. Allow to cool for 2 minutes on the cookie sheet and then put them on a cooling rack to cool completely.

once cool, spread jam and put cookies together

Once the cookies are completely cooled spread about 1 1/2 teas of strawberry jam on the bottom cookie. Then put the heart-cut-out top on.

Hint: Put jam sparingly around the edges; put most in the middle so it will cup up through the heart and not make a mess around the sides when you sandwich the cookies.


Super cute Grinch Christmas Cookies

Yum! Enjoy your delicious Grinch Christmas Cookies!

HINT:  This may be a great time to watch the cartoon How the Grinch Stole Christmas or full length Jim Carey version of Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch Who Stole Christmas!
