The Best Holiday Cookies

As soon as the Thanksgiving dishes are done, I start thinking about baking for the next holiday. I tend to make the same 6-8 cookies each year along with fudge, the best English toffee, and peppermint bark.

My rule of thumb for holiday cookies is to have one sugary cookie, one chocolate, one peanut butter, one ginger, one nutty and one coconutty. Something for everyone. And they are ALL my favorites. But I’m always looking for a new Christmas cookie recipe to try. Thanks to some of my blogger friends,  I’m sharing a lot of inspiration for my holiday baking!!

I never stop looking for an improved recipe or a new twist to make my Christmas cookies even better. Plus I have an annual cookie exchange and that cookie recipe cannot be the same as one that I deliver to my friends and neighbors. That would be blasphemy!
