Sing it with me: It’s the mo-ost, wonderful time of the ye-e-e-e-ar. That’s right. It’s prime cookie time. Did you know holiday cookies don’t have calories? That’s right. I just made up that fact. But hey, indulge a little! Baking Christmas cookies is a really special tradition to me. I spent many long nights assisting my grandmother make hundreds and hundreds of cookies. I have taken those special moments and introduced them to my kids.
My son loves to get involved – pouring, mixing, tasting… he enjoys it all. (My daughter has fun playing with the measuring spoons for now 🙂 ) Whether you’re hosting or participating in a cookie exchange, attending a holiday party, or just enjoy baking in general, here are ten Christmas cookie recipes that I truly love! I hope you enjoy. My mouth is watering as I type! Time to get in the kitchen and bake 🙂
These cookies are made by swirling two types of dough together (red velvet and a green-dyed vanilla). Chilling both before you swirl the two flavors together really helps keep it from sticking to your fingers — and getting food coloring on your skin.
