67 Holiday Cookie Ideas

By: Jessica Farris, Editor, RecipeLion.com

The weather outside may be frightful, but these 67 Holiday Cookie Ideas are oh so delightful! Let it snow and snow as long as a batch of warm, comforting Christmas cookies are waiting inside. This ultimate collection of baked sweets includes cookies for every winter holiday occasion, from gift-giving to decorating to snacking. Classic Christmas cookie recipes make inexpensive gifts for family members and friends.

 

In my family, our favorite Christmas cookie recipes are family traditions. Everyone helps to make different types of cookies before the group gets together, and while the family chefs are working hard on Christmas dinner, the conglomerate of cookie tins opens up on the table, and we snack on those until the main event. Over the next few days, we're far too stuffed to eat anything other than the occasional sweet treat, so we go back to the cookie table for dessert. We have so many different types of Christmas cookies that we rarely eat them all.

 

Take shelter from chilly winter weather and enjoy the taste the sweetness of Christmas cheer with great holiday cookie recipes!
