15 Christmas Cookies You Need to Make for the Holidays!

Sharing is caring!

15 Christmas Cookie Recipes you have to try this year!

15 Christmas cookies that are sure to make your holiday a little more delicious! So many festive options!

I barely close the door on Thanksgiving before I start baking ALL THE COOKIES. There’s something so warm and cozy about a warm house with cookie smells coming from the oven.

Making cookies every holiday season brings so much joy, not only because I love what I’m doing, but I can give them away the bounty as gifts and have an amazing time trying new recipes like my current fave – Cherry Cheesecake Cookies!

We all have the staples from our childhoods and families that we treasure, but the holidays mean sampling some new things and finding new ideas. I hope one of these recipes inspires you to start a new holiday cookie tradition!
