One of my favorite yearly traditions is tying on my apron and baking Christmas cookies with my daughter.
We play Christmas carols in the background, sneak tastes of batter or chocolate chips whenever we can, and laugh together as we make memories that we’ll both cherish for years to come.
Sometimes the cookies are just for us, to enjoy while snuggling up and enjoying a favorite Christmas movie or book, while sometimes we are whipping up batches of treats to share!
Whether for a Christmas Cookie Exchange or as a thoughtful, homemade gift, Christmas cookies have a way of spreading cheer that no other baked good can!
In our Classic Christmas Cookies ebook, we have gathered 40 of our favorite Christmas cookie recipes – from Peanut Butter Buckeyes to Easy Shortbread, Cream Cheese Mints to Toffee Biscuits!
These cookies all share a few things in common:
- They are easy enough for the kids to help make
- They require no special ingredients requiring visits to 5 different grocery stores
- They are Christmas classics that everyone will be excited to see at the Cookie Exchange
- And they are delicious!
To make your holiday baking even easier, we’ve included several tips to ensure the best results so you can just focus on having fun with your kids and trust that these cookies will turn out perfectly, every time.
To give you a sample of one of the recipes that is included in the Classic Christmas Cookies Ebook, we made a video for our easy Cream Cheese Mints – one of the 40 recipes included in the book:
We double tested all of these recipes so that you can rest assured that your time spent baking (and your ingredients) won’t go to waste. All you’ll have to worry about is if you made enough for everyone!
