Christmas means lots of baking in our house, along with family, hugs, gifts, and gratitude for all of the blessings in our lives. A must have for all of us, though, are our traditional Christmas Cookies. Today, I’m sharing with you some of the recipes we have gone to for generations!
Cut Out Cookies For Santa

I’ve had a lot of folks ask what my favorite cookie recipes are for Christmas cookie exchanges so I’m putting them together in one handy, dandy list to help you with your holiday get togethers. My favorite thing to do is have other families each make one type of cookie and then get together for a big cookie exchange. By making a few dozen of one type and exchanging them like this, we can all end up with a big holiday cookie variety without the mess and also get to enjoy the delicious baking skills of our friends!
I have more treat recipe posts coming up this week and next so stay tuned and make sure you subscribe to my newsletter so you don’t ever miss a single post!
Fruitcake Bar Cookies
Candied and Dried fruit layered with cinnamon, brown sugar, and just enough flour and butter to hold it all together until it reaches your mouth!
Simple Spritz Cookies
These classic Christmas shaped buttery cookies ensure you always come back with an empty cookie plate 🙂
Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies
These are the cookies that, according to both of my children, make me the absolute best mother in the entire universe.
Chocolate…chocolate…enough said. 🙂
Chocolate Chip Cloud Cookies
My nephew took one bite of these cookies years ago and declared them to taste just like clouds! Crisp and delicate meringue wrapped around chocolate chips – it’s all good here!
Peanut Butter Cookies
Nothing like a good old fashioned peanut butter cookie and a big glass of milk!
Mama’s Milk Dunkin M&M Cookies
Mama always made these growing up and let us decorate the tops with M&M’s before putting them in the oven. We got to use exactly three M&M’s per cookie…
Santa loves ’em
Ooey gooey chocolate chip cookie bars with a delicately crisp brown sugar meringue topping.
This is cookie decadence at it’s finest!
Mexican Wedding Cookies
I love baking from scratch, but I also love being able to turn out cookies as wonderful as this using boxed white cake mix!
This is one of my personal all time favorites. I like to make ’em really big and put each one in it’s own little bag with curling ribbon at top to give out as treats.
Oatmeal Raisin Scotchie Bars
This is my go to bar cookie recipe, with the addition of butterscotch chips and raisins to make a cookie that is a favorite of my husband.
Pecan Nougat Cookies
Oh. My. Goodness. So. Good. Please don’t leave me alone in the house with them! ~whimper~
Chocolate Oatmeal No Bakes
Always a classic!

Just concerned about you and your family with all the wild weather down your way…I cant’ figure out how to email you directly, I’m posting it here! Praying for those affected by the flooding and tornadoes in Alabama.
We were sparred the majority of the really bad weather. I know several communities around us were affected though. Thank you so much for thinking of us and praying for all affected!!
Christy, I can’t get the recipes to come up on my computer. All I get is a larger picture of the cookies. Help!
Hey Sandra! Sounds like you are clicking on the photograph rather than the title. Try clicking on the title and that should work. Thanks!
