There’s still time to make a few of our absolutely favorite cookie recipes. Some of these are always a part of our Christmas cookie tray (like Reindeer Mix and Caramel Creme Sandwich Cookies) while others are a new addition (I’m looking at you Cherry Chocolate Kisses). We couldn’t call it a holiday without them.
Either way, I love every single cookie recipe written here. These are the recipes we make again and again. They are my most requested recipes from friends and family. These are the things that fairly scream “Merry Christmas!” to me and mine. Enjoy!
Best Christmas Cookie Recipes
Cherry Chocolate Kisses Cookie Recipe — Please meet my new favorite cookie. Even people who say that they dislike cherries find themselves coming back for more. You won’t believe how fast they disappear!
Soft Snickerdoodle Cookies Recipe — I hated Snickerdoodle cookies as a kid. They were always hard and tasteless (sorry, mom). But then I discovered this recipe and decided to give it a go. Am I glad I did! They are soft, easy to make, and the kids love to roll them in the cinnamon-sugar mixture at the end. It’s a fun way to get everyone in the kitchen baking together.
Christmas Popcorn Recipe — This is festive. This is good. This is popcorn coated in white chocolate for goodness’ sake. It’s so easy to throw together and a definite kid-pleaser. If there’s any holiday movie-watching in your home, this would be the one to serve with it. Our boys ask for it by name.
Caramel Creme Sandwich Cookies — Sandwich cookies are all grown up with this tasty recipe. They turn out so pretty you will be proud to serve them. Use a cookie dough scoop to ensure matching sandwiches.
Homemade Oreo Cookies — Not only would this make a great Christmas cookie tray addition, but they would also be an awesome homemade gift for the Oreo cookie lover in your family.
Monster Cookie Dip Recipe — Our oldest son requests this ALL THE TIME. He’s not alone. I’m thinking it might be a nice take-along to a holiday gathering. You are almost guaranteed not to bring the same item as someone else so there’s less chance of bringing home a full container. Embarrassing!
Reindeer Mix Recipe — Okay, so it’s not a cookie either. However, this is a very long-standing tradition in our family. My husband looks so forward to this one you wouldn’t even believe it. He begins talking about it as soon as Thanksgiving is over. It’s a holiday treat we always had around when I was a kid, snacking while playing board games like Scattergories and Encore. Now? We do the same with our own kids.
Cookies Bring Good Cheer
