Every family has that one traditional holiday treat, and for my husband, it is this Rusk Cookie Recipe. If you’ve never heard of a rusk, it’s a hard cookie that is perfect for dunking in everything from milk to hot chocolate or even orange juice! This is a 3rd generation recipe passed down on my husband’s side of the family and is ideal for the holiday season.
This Rusk cookie recipe is very easy to make. Since it’s one of the most popular items during our family gatherings, my mother-in-law even makes large batches in advance to freeze and have on hand for Christmas gatherings. If she didn’t make them in advance, she wouldn’t have enough to go around. They are so popular!
This simple cookie doesn’t have a distinct flavor. Instead, it takes on the flavor of what you dip it into. This is one of the best parts of the Rusk cookie recipe because you can enjoy it with so many different things. You can dip it in your morning coffee, in milk or various flavored milk, and even things like hot chocolate or juice.
Since the holidays are chock full of super sweet and decadent treats, this cookie is the perfect choice as an option to be not so indulgent but still perfectly delicious.
