As soon as the Thanksgiving dishes are done, I start thinking about baking Christmas Cookies. I tend to make the same 6-8 cookies each year along with fudge, toffee and peppermint bark. But I also like to shake things up a bit with at least one new holiday cookie! And I have a boatload of favorites from my blogger friends to share with you today!
30+ Christmas Cookies for the Holidays
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 that doesn’t mean I ever 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!
