Grinch Crinkle Cookies
Get into the holiday spirit, with these Grinch Crinkle Cookies. The best time of the year in my own personal opinion, is the holidays. Once Halloween rolls around. I am so ready to start preparing for holiday parties, menus and decoration game planning. I have always loved Halloween and dressing up. Even though I don’t have much of a sweet tooth. I think it’s because of the fact that I was deprived of trick or treating as a kid, because of religious reasons.
My sons birthday is on October 21, so the festivities start early around these parts. We have Jayden’s birthday, Halloween right after, Thanksgiving, my birthday on December 2nd, Christmas, New Year, and we also celebrate Three Kings Day on January 6, with more gifts. In Puerto Rico people celebrate Three Kings Day harder then they celebrate Christmas.
So yea, the holiday season for use comes with so many things to celebrate and I love it. I am also one of those people who decorates before Thanksgiving. I like to have the Christmas tree and decorations up durning Thanksgiving dinner.
If that seems like a lot to you, that is because it is 😅! I like a very minimal low clutter space so even though I love lots of decorations around the holidays, I do get overwhelmed. By the time New Year rolls around I am waaay ready to take everything down. To the shock of my Puerto Rican family I have taken down my decorations before Three Kings day, because I was just over it.
Although, I don’t have much of a sweet tooth for sweets. I really love making sweets for the holidays, and these the perfect cookies for the holidays, and even more perfect for baking up with little ones. To create those beautiful holiday memories, that are just priceless!
