Every year my mom, sister and I gather in one of our kitchens for our annual holiday baking fest. We usually make several different kinds of cookies to get us through our Christmas celebrations. And this year was no exception. Well, there was something different about this year. My lil' lady bean joined us for the fun and was very excited about her job as chief sugar cookie decorator! I do believe we have a little baker in the making on our hands! I bet you have one of two of those around your house too...And just in case you do, I've rounded up some of our favorite Christmas cookie recipes for your baking pleasure!
It's important to note that I consider any delicious cookie worthy of being a Christmas cookie. I just love seeing a variety of colors and textures all served up on a pretty holiday platter!
Did you know that using cake mix, can make decadent, pillow cookies? Well, this recipe proves that it can! And it doesn't hurt that they're so very pretty.
Ok, this isn't exactly a recipe, but our cookies and coffee party idea is perfect to pair with any of your favorite cookies...I'm partial to the ones I've featured here of course. Haha!
No baking session is complete without chocolate chip cookies. I'd certainly never turn down one and I'm sure I'm not alone!
If you love coconut as much as I do, these cookies are going to be right up your alley. I just love nice chocolate and coconut combo...Don't you?
And if you're short on time and just don't want to turn the oven on, these no bake graham cracker treats are super festive, yet can be whipped up in a flash.
So, do you have any favorite Christmas cookie recipes to share? I'm always looking for new ones to add to the rotation!
