We’re only 15 days away from Christmas! If you’re like me, that means it is time to start baking Christmas cookies, not only for my husband to enjoy, but also to give away as gifts to family and friends!
I love baking Christmas cookies. So I thought I would share my love of baking with you by sharing some of my favorite cookie recipes!
I hope you have a chance to try some of them out this holiday season. I hope you enjoy as much as I do!
My sister and I literally grew up on these cookies at Christmastime. These are the cookies that we would make by the dozens the day before Thanksgiving, and would proceed to eat them all the way until Christmas day. These will always be my favorite Christmas cookie! My favorite recipe is the classic recipe from Betty Crocker. Get the recipe here.
If you want to know the most popular cookies that I make every year, these Cranberry Bliss Cookies are them! I always, always, always include these in the boxes of cookies that I give as gifts, and they are always the first to go. It must be the perfect combination of cranberries and white chocolate. Seriously, you have to try these cookies! Check out the recipe here.
The same brilliant blog who brought the Cranberry Bliss Cookies into our lives also created a great recipe for ginger molasses cookies. I think that ginger molasses cookies are a must-have cookie during the holidays, and this is my go-to recipe. Find the recipe here.
I love star sandwich cookies because they always turn out so beautifully. Yes, they taste great as well, but I just cannot get over how lovely they look in a cookie gift box. There are, of course, many recipes out there, but my favorite is this recipe from the Food Network. You can get the recipe here.
If you like jam and you like shortbread, then these Thumbprint cookies are perfect! The best part is that you can make them using any flavor of jam you want, making them your own. I love using raspberry jam and blackberry jam. This is the recipe for these cookies that I have always used.
