Give the gift of homemade Christmas cookies this year!  I have all of your holiday cookie baking needs covered with over 30 Christmas Cookies recipe ideas.

I am sure I’m not the only one who goes on a Christmas cookie baking frenzy in the month of December each and every year.  My kitchen won’t even know what hit it once I get going and it will hate me for a month straight.  The problem is, I can never narrow down my baking list because I want to just make “all the things”.  This is why I am gifting you with this collection of JUST cookie recipes that I think are the best of the best all in one place.  Now there is no need to go digging through a zillion cookbooks or Pinterest browsing – the work is all done for you with these 30+ Christmas Cookie Recipes here.

I am back from vacation and there is snow on the ground as I’m writing this so I obviously have turned on the Christmas music.  You know how people say “bring home the sunshine when you come back” when you leave on vacation?  Well, I brought back the snow.  It is literally the first snowfall of the season on the day I returned home.  You’re welcome, friends and family 🙂

With that being said, you know what I am doing as soon as I am done here – that’s right……BAKING.  Enjoy!

These are a few of my favorite things: cooking, baking, Broadway musicals, cruises, Disney World, Christmas, thunderstorms, 80's and country music, and my favorite pastime has ALWAYS been baseball. Go Yankees!

    Great round up! I will look through these recipes with my kids. We agreed that they can choose the cookies we make this year. Each three sorts and we plan to bake them together all through December!
