Best Christmas Cookies
There’s still plenty of time to whip up a batch of cookies to take to the neighbors or friends. My family likes to make and decorate sugar cookies for Santa every year. Santa told me he likes all kinds of cookies, so you don’t have to limit yourself to sugar cookies. Any of these fabulous cookie recipes would be perfect for the holidays.
Soft gingersnap cookies made with molasses and the warm winter spices ginger and cinnamon. You can’t go wrong with a classic.
Bitterkoekjes are almond macaroons with a crisp exterior and a soft center. This macaroons recipe is made with almond paste and without coconut. A Dutch treat that my husband’s family devours on Christmas Day.
Cherry Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Toffee Cookies are one of the reasons I started Barbara Bakes. It’s loaded with goodies and it’s still a favorite at our house.
World Peace Cookies are a famous and decadent chocolate shortbread cookie studded with chocolate chips. The crumbly, but not too crisp texture and rich chocolate flavor makes this a chocolate cookie recipe you’ll want to bake again and again.
