Christmas Cookies To Make And Gift!
Check out Christmas Cookies To Make And Gift
When I was younger my Mom and I would bake dozens and dozens of Christmas cookies, of all kinds, and create pretty Christmas cookie platters and deliver them to all of our family and friends. Not only did everyone look forward to receiving our famous cookie plates each year, but we always looked forward to visiting with loved ones while we delivered the pretty plates of cookies. We often didn’t get to sit and visit throughout the year and our cookie delivery tradition was the one time we could sit and visit with loved ones we rarely saw otherwise. It’s something that still sticks in my mind today.

Thanks for including my creme wafers!
I absolutely adore the snowball cookies. Not only are they delicious to eat but they are perfect to pop in a container and gift.
I’ve been giving my oven a work-out. I love holiday baking, and I just can’t stop. These all look so incredible. If I don’t eat them all myself, I’d love to gift some to my neighbors.
Those melting moments are so pretty. I’d love to make the swirls too!
Thank you, am always looking for new cookie recipes. Those cookie cream wafers look awesome!!!!
I make peanut butter blossoms every year at Christmas time because if I make them any other time I do declare I wouldn’t be able to fit in a door. You’re right this is a great gift idea, and I can only imagine the kind of memories this gave you and your mom. Thanks for sharing these recipe ideas. I’ve never heard of some of these, and I’ve been looking for recipes to add to my collection.
I love cookies! Especially Christmas cookies, my fave! Thanks for these 🙂
Oh those candy stripe cookie sticks look fantastic! I’ve never seen that kind of cookie and I will absolutely be trying that!
My favorite cookie has to be either my chocolate chip cookie (the cookie dough is amazing and it’s the perfect accessory to coffee0 and Red Velvet Milkyway cookie by Picky Palate. Your collection looks very promising too. 🙂
These cookies all look fantastic, it’s hard to choose which looks best. I’d be happy to try them all, though.
I haven’t had a snowball cookie in YEARS! I also haven’t heard of saltine cracker toffee! that one intrigues me.
These are all great. I can’t decide my favorite.
AAaannnnddd now my sweet tooth is in over drive LOL Those Melting Moments look amazing. My grandma and I used to make that toffee – I’ve only made it once since she passed – just didnt feel right making it without her. I sure miss it though.
I’ve been baking like crazy lately, and I need some new ideas. These are all really cute. Thanks!
So much deliciousness in one post! I don’t have one particular favorite, as I have several favorite flavors – pumpkin, chocolate chip, gingerbread, spicy chocolate, oatmeal raisin, blueberry lemon, etc – I love cookies!
Thank you for all of these great cookie ideas! I especially love the gingerbread men, so cute!
