15 of my Favorite Christmas Cookie Recipes
I don’t think I’ve met anyone who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookies. These M&M Chocolate Cookies are not only tasty, but pretty with their festive colors. A kid favorite! But that doesn’t mean the adults won’t go back for seconds. 😉
I am a huge fan of chocolate mint, so these Chocolate Mint Truffle Cookies are at the top of my list. If you like cookie dough, you’re in trouble, because this dough not only tastes fabulous, but it contains no eggs, so you can safely eat as much as you want. Which in my case can be a very bad thing.
You might assume that only ladies will enjoy these dainty little Butter Cookies with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting. That’s what I assumed, then found out I was totally wrong! They are addicting, and their small size makes them fun to pop in your mouth.
Sometimes you just need a cookie like the ones grandma used to make. Everyone should have a great peanut butter cookie recipe in their stash, and this is mine. My dad will pick these cookies over the chocolate/ dipped/ glazed/frosted- fancy cookies every time. He loves them, and I think you will too!
