It’s officially The Holidays! I’m one of those people who refuses to start her Christmas *stuff* until after Thanksgiving. But, once the turkey and stuffing are gone, I am ready for candy canes and tinsel and Santa and magic elves and Christmas cookies!  (Not the music, though. I still don’t like Christmas music)

What I love most about this season are the many opportunities to get together with friends and family.  Some of those gatherings are planned well in advance, and others are spur of the moment.  Even in those spur of the moment times, I like to have a nice snack or treat to share with friends.  Something quick and easy to put together with items I have in the house (or can quickly grab at the store) that doesn’t require much prep or planning is essential!

During the holidays I always keep some “fancy” cookies on hand. We love Mulino Bianco cookies, which we purchase at Shaw’s. Mulino Bianco at Shaws

They are Italy’s #1 cookie brand and come in a variety of flavors (Dave loves the Baiocchi and Pan Di Stelle. The Cuoricini and Galletti are my favorites!) We enjoy them with coffee (or milk for Avery!) and they are perfect for holiday cookie platters!

Mulino Bianco

The first step for the perfect cookie tray, is finding the perfect cookies! Since I don’t always have time to bake, I use Mulino Bianco to impress my guests! (They’ve been baking cookies since 1877, so I think they know what they are doing!)

Next I create a special dip for the cookies (and fruit!) One of our favorites is Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake Dip! With just 4 simple ingredients this recipe is as easy as it is delicious!

Now to make that cookie platter…

Since I didn’t have a holiday tray, I used our wooden cutting board, and lined it with wax paper.

First, lay out your cookies in any sort of pattern or design you’d like. How to make a cookie tray

Next, fill in the spaces with some fresh fruit! The strawberries are also delicious with the dip!
