2. Chocolate Dipped Shortbread Cookies
This five-ingredient cookie gives room for decoration imagination. Erin C’s recipe on Genius Kitchen gives us these simple sweets and another reason to spend time with family and friends.

4. No-bake Chocolate Oat Bars
With this quick snack, you don’t even need to turn on the oven. These chocolate oat bars from Yummly are high in protein and fiber and nice on the electricity bill. With a hint of cinnamon and peanut butter, create these oat bars as a tasty snack to bring along with you on a busy day or as a quick fix for your sweet tooth.
5. Pecan Puffs
For those craving a crunch with their cookies, try out these pecan puffs. These bite-sized puffs do call for a bit of prep with chopping the pecans in a food processor, but the flavor and texture will definitely be worth the work. For those looking for low sugar, you can also adjust this recipe by omitting the two rounds of confectioner’s sugar dusting the recipe on Genius Kitchen calls for.
6. Cinnamon Crumb Pecan Sandies
Pecan-lovers can enjoy another recipe with pecan folded in! The ingredient list is a tad long with a few spices you might not naturally have (such as nutmeg and cream of tartar), but at least with the nutmeg, you can use that for some pumpkin spice cupcakes come fall. The crumble topping will certainly be one to please, so check out the recipe on Little Bits Of!
