Our Best Christmas Cookies

We are only a week away from Christmas and that can only mean one thing.  Christmas Cookies!!!  I love all types of cookies but for some reason, all cookies taste better at Christmas!  This list includes everything from Cut out cookies to fudge crinkles.  Lots of sugar, lots of chocolate and a ton of Christmas Fun!

Our Best Christmas Cookies

Gingerbread Cookies

Gingerbread Cookies

A classic Christmas cookie that is a must have every year in our house.  This cookie is super easy to make and fun for everyone to decorate.

Cutout Sugar Cookies

Sugar Cookies

These sugar cookies are perfection.  They are not too sweet, thus allowing you to coat them in super sweet royal icing. Plus, they hold up great without overly rising.  Therefore, your cutouts look exactly as they should.

Awesome Chocolate Chip Cookies

Light fluffy with a little crisp on the edges. The perfect cookie.

I have been on a quest for the best chocolate chip cookies for a while.  After a while I have figured out the ingredients needed to make a really good cookie.  You need to use both butter and shortening.  If you use all butter your cookies come out flat and crunchy.  If you use all shortening your cookies come out fluffy but don’t spread out.  A perfect balance of the two gives you a light and fluffy cookie that is not too thick and not too thin.

Brown Butter Snickerdoodle Cookies

Brown Butter Snickerdoodles

I love snickerdoodles and could not even think of a way to improve on them.  However, Dana found a way.  She used browned butter instead of regular butter.  The brown butter gave the already amazing cookies, a great rich flavor.  These are one of my new favorite cookies.

Thumbprint Butter Cookies

Awesome Sugar cookies that contain a thumbprint of your favorite jam.  I used some homemade strawberry jam, but you can use anything that you have on hand.  You could use multiple different types of jams and create a colorful collection of cookies.

Soft Molasses Cookies

Soft Molasses Cookies

These are soft and chewy with just a hint of spice.  The perfect treat on a cold winter night.  My family loves these cookies.

Simple Crunchy Sugar Cookies

The Smiley Face Cookie

This is light and fluffy cookie with great flavor, a perfect sugar cookie.   It bakes to a crunchy and delicious cookie perfect for glazing!

Fudge Crinkles

Fudge Crinkle Cookie

Fudge Crinkles are like little clouds of chocolate awesomeness!  One of my favorite cookies that my wife has made for me.  You have to try these this Christmas!

No-Bake Cookies

No-Bake Cookies

no-bake cookies require no baking.  One pan, a little parchment paper and 40 minutes.    Talk about quick treat.  I couldn’t wait to try mine so I had one right after I dropped them on the parchment.  I would recommend against that.  It was like eating napalm.  150+ degrees of tasty goodness.
