Christmas is a time for a lot of great things. It’s the time of giving. It’s the time of family. It’s a time of remembering what is truly important.
In our house it’s a time for all of those things and for celebrating our faith, friends and family!
One way we do that is with baking. We love cooking up treats to give to neighbors, for surprising the kiddos after they get home from school and for Cookie Exchange parties to hang out with our friends. Here are 7 of our favorite Christmas Cookies that we love. What is your favorite kind of cookie?
7 Christmas Cookie Recipes We Love
We love Christmas cookies! It’s definitely one of our favorite holiday traditions. My Mom always baked with me when I was a kid and I do the same with my kids. Our favorites are Chocolate Crinkles, Peanut Butter Kisses, and Sugar Cookie Cut-outs. But I love to try new ones every year too. The Red Velvet Cookie Cupcakes are so easy and festive, and the Nutella Stuffed Cookies are honestly the best things in the entire WORLD!!
I love to bake, especially during the holiday season! My little helper, Sam joins me in the kitchen — just like I used to join my grandmother. He loves to help measure and mix… but of course his favorite part is tasting! We have a few classics we create each year that are family favorites, but we also loves to experiment with new recipes. It’s definitely one of my favorite ways to create memories together.

My favorite Christmas cookies are the peanut butter cookies with the Hershey Kisses on top! Doesn’t get much better than that in my book. My husband and kiddo though, love these Triple Chocolate Nutella Cookies. My all time personal favorite Christmas treat though (besides cookies), are these yummy-licious Peanut Butter Balls. They are absolutely heaven on earth! They’re also Eli’s favorite. We can polish off a batch of those in no time.
