With the holidays right around the corner, we’re guessing you are probably already making plans for your holiday baking and meals. At Old Town Spice Shop, we strive to offer the highest-quality spices in Fort Collins to give you the best cooking and baking experience. 

One of our favorite things about the holidays is baking! We have some of the best baking spices in town to take your holiday cookies to the next level. In this blog, we’ll reveal our favorite baking spices and recipes to use during the holiday season.

Our Best Spices to Use for Holiday Cookies

Be prepared for all of your baking adventures this season, with our spices, sugars, and extracts! When it comes to holiday cookies, we have a few must-haves that are always in our pantry. Here are our staples for making cookies:

  • Cinnamon - A staple ingredient to most holiday baking recipes, especially cookies! Our Saigon Cinnamon has 1-5% essential oils and is sweeter than Cassia Cinnamon, so it’s considered one of the best kinds of cinnamon to use. 
  • Nutmeg - Nutmeg is great for all holiday baking. You can use it in brown sugar and nutmeg chewy cookies! Or add it to your sugar cookies for a spin on a classic treat. 
  • Ginger - We try to have ginger of all kinds in our pantry during the holidays! Crystallized Ginger Root, Ground Ginger, and Ginger Sugar are all some of our staples. You can use ginger in snickerdoodles, gingerbread cookies, gingerbread snaps, and ginger and molasses cookies!
  • Allspice - Use this in sugar and spice cookies and more! With this blend of cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg, you can’t go wrong.
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice - Warm nutmeg and spicy ginger complement the aromatic qualities of cinnamon, clove, and allspice to season your favorite holiday cookies! We like to use this in our ginger and molasses cookies. 
  • Vanilla Extract - We like to make vanilla butter cookies or your classic sugar cookies with vanilla extract! Madagascar Vanilla Extract is largely considered to be the gold standard for professional pastry chefs worldwide. 

Our Favorite Holiday Cookies to Make

The holidays call for delicious cookies that you could bribe Santa or your family with, and we don’t mean your typical chocolate chip cookies. Here are some of our favorite holiday cookie recipes to add a little spice to your cookie game: 

Spicy Snickerdoodles 

These are some of our favorite cookies to make! A little bit of spice and everything nice. They don’t need many ingredients, and they use some of our flavored sugars to add a twist. Pick up some Habanero Sugar Cinnamon Sugar, and Madagascar Vanilla Extract to make these delicious Spicy Snickerdoodles!
