The Best Christmas Cookie Recipes – 2019


The Best Christmas Cookie Recipes

Don’t you just love the smell of ginger, cinnamon and vanilla filling your kitchen as you bake your cookies?  Christmas is just around the corner and your probably thinking about what kind of Christmas Cookies to add to your Christmas Cookies Collection this year.

Well, I’ve starting baking my Christmas Cookies because I love to give little bundles to my friends and family during the holidays.  Rather than rushing to bake them in the couple of weeks leading up to Christmas, I decided this year to start in November with cookies that could be frozen and then thawed out later.

To save you time, I’m sharing with you today the cookies that I’ve been baking for my Christmas Cookies Collection and earmarking them for you in this compilation of the best Christmas Cookie Recipes for 2019. If you were too late this year, no problem, just PIN this post for next year.

Packaging Your Christmas Cookies Collection

If you have ever made a cookies to add to a collection you want to gift, you know what it feels like to be proud of your work.  The last thing you want to do is to discard how you want to present your cookies to your friends and family.  For my Christmas Cookie Recipes, I always try to find cute cookie boxes or holiday plates.

I arrange the cookies either by grouping them by variety or just alternating between different types of cookies until I’ve filled a box. You can find cookie treat bags at the Dollar Store or at a party supply store.  This is the type of box that I have used before, here.
