Holiday Cookies in 3 Flavors

These deli­cious French hol­i­day cook­ies are all made with the same dough, but come in 3 dif­fer­ent fla­vors: man­darin, vanil­la, and cin­na­mon. So fun to be able to enjoy 3 dif­fer­ent fla­vors in the same batch of cook­ies! Plus, the recipe is quick and easy!

Utensils

I used a cook­ie press to make my cook­ies. Alter­na­tive­ly, you could use cook­ie cut­ters. I rec­om­mend mak­ing 3 dif­fer­ent shapes and 1 fla­vor per shape, which allows you to eas­i­ly know which cook­ies are which fla­vors.  My snowflakes are cin­na­mon, stars are vanil­la, and flow­ers are man­darin.

Instruc­tions
  1. Pre­heat oven to 390 degrees Fahren­heit. In a large mix­ing bowl, mix the all pur­pose flour, the bak­ing pow­der, the sug­ar, and the almond flour.
  2. Add the soft­ened but­ter and the egg. Mix first with a fork, and then with your hands.
  3. Gath­er the dough in 3 dif­fer­ent balls. In one ball, add 1 tea­spoon of vanil­la extract and mix with your hands until the vanil­la extract is ful­ly incor­po­rat­ed into the dough. In the sec­ond ball, add the cin­na­mon, and mix again with your hands until the cin­na­mon is ful­ly incor­po­rat­ed into the dough. With a grater, zest the man­darin. Add the man­darin zest (just the zest, not the juice) to the 3rd ball, and mix with your hands until ful­ly incor­po­rat­ed.

  4. Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough from each ball, and use a cook­ie press or cook­ie cut­ter to cut out cook­ies in the dough. Use a dif­fer­ent cook­ie cut­ter for each fla­vored dough so you know which cook­ies are which fla­vor. Place cook­ies on a bak­ing pan cov­ered with parch­ment paper.
