Make these 15 Christmas cookies for the holiday. Cookies are the all time favorite dessert and snack of the season. There really is nothing like sitting and eating cookies that you have baked and drinking hot chocolate and being with family!
This is the time of the season where our family gets together and has a family cookie baking day! We just spend the whole day baking our favorite Christmas cookies, singing Christmas songs, decorating the sugar cookies and of course eating all the Christmas cookies that we bake!
We sit on Pinterest and pin Christmas cookies all season long and every year we have a different cookie recipe that want to try, along with our all time favorite cookie recipes. Once we all have collaborated together to pick the perfect mix of cookies we make a list, do our shopping and get to baking!
