Baking is so much more fun in December. While I bake cookies year-round, nothing beats the fun of baking and sharing holiday cookies.
Whether you are baking cookies to leave out for Santa or need to bring a dozen to your office party, I’ve got 12 beautiful cookie recipes that are sure to please.
We all have our favorite cookies (chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies, and snickerdoodles!) that will always be served during the holidays, but I hope you find a couple new ones to add to your collection from this round-up. It was really difficult narrowing this list down to 12. There are so many delicious and inventive cookie recipes out there! Here are my favorite 12- a cookie recipe a day to last you until Christmas!
I’m at a loss for words. Peppermint patty sandwiched between Ritz crackers and dipped in chocolate. Tonia of The Gunny Sack knows the way to my heart. I want a dozen of these peppermint patty stuffed Ritz crackers pronto!
Chocolate crinkle cookies are my family’s favorite! We order a few dozen at a local bakery each year. Now I can make them at home thanks to Samantha of SpendwithPennies.
I always decorate sugar cookies and build a family gingerbread house on Christmas eve. I’m definitely making these dotty winter trees by Bridget of Bake at 350. Best of all, she has a step by step instructions to help you out!
My favorite cookie of all- the French macaron! These pretty little peppermint macarons are perfect for the brave and adventurous bakers. Stacey Abel Photography via Studio DIY has a step-by-step tutorial on how to make the elusive and ever so popular macarons.
