Christmas Cookie Recipes from the Inn at Ellis River

Do you still need some inspiration for baking holiday cookies? The Inn at Ellis River has participated in the Annual Inn to Inn Holiday Cookie Tour sponsored by the Country Inns in the White Mountains for almost two decades, so creating new Christmas cookie recipes is a specialty at the Inn. This year, the Inn prepared GaGa’s Lemon Gingerbread Bars, based on Christine’s grandmother’s gingerbread recipe, and Holiday Delights chock full of almonds, cranberries, apricots, and chocolate. Visit the Recipes section for lots of recipes from previous years, including both sweet and savory treats. Want to just enjoy the Tour and let someone else bake the cookies? The Tour is held the second weekend in December each year, with inns throughout the Mt. Washington Valley offering tasty treats and festive decorations. Participants in the Tour receive recipes for all the cookies and candies prepared by the innkeepers, plus a souvenir ornament as a memento. It’s never too early to let dreams of sugarplums and cookies dance in your head!
