Don’t go into this holiday season without a trusty baking guide — and we’ve got just the one for this year. Holiday Cookies is so much more than cookies, check out these recipes for all kinds of seasonal treats, from the pumpkin-spiced to the apple-spiked. These red velvet crackle cookies are an eye-catching addition to any holiday spread. 

Here, I have taken traditional chocolate crackle cookies, which look like they are covered with snow, and given them a holiday accent by making them red velvet. Be sure to coat the cookie balls generously with confectioners’ sugar before you bake them to guarantee that the snowlike effect is stunning.
