Christmas Cookies | Tallahassee Photographer

Not my usual wedding or family session post, but instead today I bring you good tidings of great Christmas Cookies! I’ve been baking all sorts of goodies the past few days and thought “why not share my tasty creations with everyone?” Especially after the feedback on my personal social media pages was crazy! So, now I give you my top three Christmas Cookies and their corresponding recipes. Enjoy!

Leg Lamp Christmas Cookies Tallahassee Photographer

The biggest hit was definitely these Leg Lamp Cookies, inspired by the classic movie A Christmas Story. In the 1940s, a young boy named Ralphie attempts to convince his parents, his teacher and Santa that a Red Ryder BB gun really is the perfect Christmas gift. During the movie, Ralphie’s dad wins a “major award” in a contest, which ends up being a lamp in the shape of a leg wearing a fishnet stocking. So in an ode to that epic tale, I made Fra-Gee-Lay Leg Lamp Cookies! I deviated slightly from that recipe (which called for a tube of sugar cookie dough) and opted instead to use this tasty basic cut-out sugar cookie recipe, decorated with sparkly black gel and finished with a Reese Big Cup serving as the lamp shade.

What Christmas Cookie extravaganza is complete without Red Velvet? My take on this tradition is Red Velvet Cake Truffles, covered in white chocolate, drizzled with dark chocolate and sprinkled with festive nonpareils. These are a staple in my holiday baking, people always request them. I get requests from friends as far away as Virginia and New Mexico for these!

Oatmeal Cream Pie Christmas Cookies Tallahassee Photographer

And the last Christmas Cookie I made this year, Homemade Oatmeal Cream Pies. These are so buttery, chewy and wonderful. They’ll take you right back to your childhood but make you feel more like an adult because they’re a touch classier. I’m a sucker for all things marshmallow

And I’ll let you in on a secret, I use gluten-free flour for all my baking and everything turns out just as delicious. Just ask anyone who took a bite, moaned and said “Oh my gawd” when they enjoyed any one of these three Christmas Cookies. Regardless, full of gluten or not, these are all super tasty and I wanted to share the recipes with you since I can’t actually mail a cookie to each of you. Enjoy!

Emily is amazing. She was not only so professional, but just a really fun person to work with. I’m not really the picture taking type, but I never once felt awkward or staged... She really will try and help you and make it as easy as possible to create memories that last. I highly recommend her if you want someone who genuinely cares about your special day.

I can't thank ... Emily enough for giving me the tools and the courage to take my side hustle from hobby to full time. I still have a ways to go, but now I have measurable goals and the know-how to see them through. Thank you ... for talking me through my fears, inspiring me to push myself, and leading by example.
