n of sugar cookies and then everyone gets together to decorate them! Why don’t you give these candy cane cookies from BHG a try with your family, and see what decorating ideas they come up with?
Candy Cane Blossoms. This is my favorite Christmas cookie recipe and I make them every year. Baked To Perfection shows us how to make these minty sugar cookies. Red and green sugar crystals are used to make the cookies festive and candy cane Hershey kisses are placed in the middle of each cookie to complete them!
Oreo Snowman Cookie Pops. If you need a cute idea to pass out to friends or to bring to your child’s classroom this Christmas, than this idea from The Idea Room is for you. Using Oreos, cake pop sticks, melted chocolate, and a few other ingredients for decorations, you can easily whip up the cutest and most delicious cookie treats for all of your loved ones!
Peanut Butter Chocolate Swirl Cookies. Sometimes you just can’t decide between two of the best cookies on earth so why not make both? Yep, this is a combination of peanut butter chocolate chip and double chocolate chip cookies and they are amazing!
Melted Snowman Cookies. This idea from Somewhat Simple is just that- simple. Turn a plain and boring sugar cookie into a cute and clever cookie by adding some frosting and marshmallows on top to recreate this adorable and melting snowman.
Holiday Wreath Cookies. These festive wreath cookies from Spoonful are light, buttery, and delicious! They are so light, you’ll probably be able to pop three or four in your mouth in one sitting. Hey, it’s Christmas. You can indulge a little.
Christmas Swirl Cookies. While these cookies from My Shine Project may not be decorated like Santa or his reindeer, I love how festive they are in a chic way. These are beautiful and would be perfect at your Christmas party!
Starry Eyed Christmas Cookies. Star shaped pretzels from The Wicked Noodle aren’t your traditional cookie shape, but instead, they look like they should be on top of your Christmas tree! They’re filled with cookie and M&M deliciousness. What a winner.
