Baking Christmas cookies is a time honored tradition that families share year to year. Here are 12 Christmas cookies to bake this Christmas! Thanksgiving is barely in the rearview mirror and baking Christmas cookies is upon us. There are only four weeks until Christmas! So in those short 28 days you’ll pack in hours of list making, gift shopping, and maybe baking Christmas cookies too. Before I jump into my 2017 holiday baking, it’s fun to look back to see what baked goods we’ve enjoyed in past years. Then these favorites might pop up again for cookie exchanges or gifts for my neighbors. No one says you have to try new recipes each year, in fact, if you have a favorite stick with it. Let’s hope that you might become the neighborhood’s legendary macaron creator or the best peanut-brittle maker this side of the Mississippi!
Here are twelve of Christmas cookie recipes that are my oldies but goodies to get you in the holiday spirit:
and one more to round out a Baker’s Dozen!
Yes, crank the Christmas music up and get baking! So many of these cookies were baked over the years with my cookie-loving friends at #CreativeCookieExchange.
