Baking Christmas cookies is one of my all time fave ways to ring in the holiday season. Whether you’re looking for a recipe for bringing cookies to your neighbors, to a Christmas party with your friends, or just to pair with your favorite Christmas movie at home, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite cookie recipes that you won’t regret making.
Give em a try and let me know what you guys think!!
1. Peanut Butter Blossoms
Maybe it’s because they remind me of my childhood or just because they’re downright good, but these cookies have a special place in my heart. What’s even better- they’re so simple and just an all around classic.
2. Brown Butter Bourbon Spice Cookies
If you’re looking to show off a bit, these cookies are sure to be a crowd pleaser. While you may have to make a trip to the grocery to make sure you have all of the ingredients, I promise you that these are so worth it! Once you have all the ingredients they’re super easy to throw together and will make you seem a whole lot fancier than you actually are haha.
3. White Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies
These cookies are another one of my go-to’s for the holidays. I just recently found this recipe because if I’m being real, Kroger used to have THE BEST break and bake cranberry oatmeal cookies and then they stopped carrying them and I had to find a replacement. Still not over that… but nonetheless, these cookies are phenomenal!
4. Gingerbread Cookies
We can’t talk about holiday cookies without talking about the classic gingerbread cookie. I must say, I’m always a little skeptical about gingerbread anything… I immediately imagine a dry, bland cookie that I regreted grabbing. All of that to say that these gingerbread cookies are NOT that cookie hahaha. In fact, this recipe has won multiple cookie competitions and if you make them, you’ll understand why!
5. Salted Caramel Thumbprint Cookies
A spin on a traditional sugar cookie, these cookies are another great crowd pleaser. While they do require a bit more of a time commitment than the rest, they’re great to make in a large batch for a Christmas party! Not to mention they’re super pretty and once again, make you look like a master baker. And I don’t know about you, but I can’t say no to anything salted caramel…
