The Perfect Christmas Cookies for Braces

It’s hard to resist a classic holiday staple like Christmas cookies. Those with braces, however, can’t give in to all of their cookie cravings. Some cookie recipes aren’t braces friendly. Crunchy gingerbread or shortbread cookies could cause brackets to break or wires to snap. Cookies topped with sticky caramel or jellies could stick to appliances and do harm. While giving up some holiday recipes are a must, Christmas cookies aren’t one that needs to be completely checked off of the list. KCC Orthodontics approves of this soft sugar cookie recipe for those with braces.

The combination of ingredients makes for a light dough that, when cooked, can be easily bitten into. These cookies don’t crunch! In order to get started, you’ll need:

  • 3 ¾ cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 ½ cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

The recipe is from All Recipes and can be found by clicking here. Once baked, they can be topped with your favorite icing recipe. Be careful when decorating. Many sprinkle options can make the braces friendly treat too crunchy for those with braces. Stay away from these cookie toppings:

  • Crushed hard candies
  • Sugar pearls
  • Gummy candies
  • Caramel

Having braces won’t stop you from enjoying the tastes of the holidays! While not every Christmas sweet is going to be braces friendly, this recipe from All Recipes gets our stamp of approval.
