15 Holiday Cookie Recipes
There’s something so joyful about baking cookies this time of year that you can’t help but let it propel you into the holiday spirit.
Maybe it’s the warming aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger hovering in the air, or the ever so comforting and familiar scent of butter and sugar co-mingling in the mixer. Maybe it’s the cathartic process of rolling out cookie dough and cutting shapes, or how the kitchen becomes the gathering hub for friends and family, and stories and laughter. Possibly it’s the ritual of making sentimental recipes that have been part of your family’s tradition for years and sharing them with loved ones. Most likely though, it’s all of the above.
Personally, all I need is a little Nat King Cole, the Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack and one whiff of evergreen pine, and I’m there.
It’s undeniable that baking cookies makes one full of cheer, and there’s no better way to share that cheer than by sharing cookies. From Santa’s cookie plate and cookie swaps to holiday gifts and “just because,” we’ve got every kind of cookie you’ll need this holiday.
