8 delicious Christmas cookie recipes for Santa, elves and everyone else!
baby, you’re a star
Jazz up your hot cocoa with our gingerbread star cookies. Ginger, cloves, cinnamon and molasses smell and taste like Christmas spirit!
how lovely are your branches
If it’s a crowd pleaser you seek, our stacked sugar cookies Christmas tree will knock even Santa’s socks off. This is one recipe where the decoration looks good enough to eat!
swoon for macaroons
Make coconut macaroons with the whole family. They’re easy to make—just throw the ingredients in a bowl then let the kids go to town.
cute as a button
Spend quality time with the fam baking our eggnog button cookies. Your littles will have fun poking buttonholes into the dough with a straw (and you can snack on some of the delicious raw cookie dough when they’re not looking!).
Sometimes they’re called Mexican wedding cakes, and other times they’re called Russian tea biscuits—but in the month of December, we call them snowball cookies!
Santa’s 9th reindeer
Our reindeer cookies have festive appeal without the caloric overload! Whip up a batch of our reindeer sugar cookies with pretzel antlers. They’re super cute without the gobs of calorie-saturated frosting that accompany most Christmas confections.
If you want your house to smell like Christmas, our chewy gingersnap cookies recipe is right up your alley! Your little elves will love them too!
sow your oats
Even Santa has his favorites! Our peanut butter oatmeal cookies are outrageously delicious. Served with a glass of ice-cold milk, old St. Nick might stay awhile.
