Ever year I make a cookie box for all my friends so this post is GREAT for ideas of different cookies to put in! Thanks! I appreciate it!

I am SO making the Santa card cookies with my daughter this Christmas. I can hear her giggling now.

My favorite Christmas cookie to make is molasses cookies. My mom used to make them when we were growing up. So they taste great and remind me of being a kid.

Some of these are really creative! I love the melted snowmen.

Hello, baking season! I can’t wait to decorate sugar cookies with the kids this year!

Chocolate peppermint shortbread cookies, I command you to get in my belly immediately! Well… I command you to get in my bell immediately after I make you!

YUM! I want to try some of those candy can chews and snowman sugar cookies! THey all look divine!

Chocolate peppermint shortbread cookies, I command you to get in my belly now! Well… I command you to get in my belly immediately after I bake you!

These are awesome for homemade gifts for the holidays! I’m going to test several of these out with my little one.

There are seven kids in our family and my mom always makes each one their favourite for Christmas. Mine is Molasses ginger cookies, but that doesn’t stop me from eating my siblings favourites too!

I am so glad it is almost Christmas cookie time! I am going to try some of these because they all sound delicious!

MMM the snowmen look delicious! SOO cute!

Thank you for sharing. I haven’t even started thinking of Christmas yet. I’ll bookmark this for when I need some inspiration for my Christmas goodies list.

We’re all about baking during the holidays so we are definitely going to reference this post! Thanks for compiling and sharing!

Every year with friends we do a Christmas Cookie Exchange where each person makes 6 dozen cookies & we all trade. This article has some fantastic new recipes for me to try, thanks! There’s something so special about receiving a tin of HOMEMADE cookies as a gift 🙂

Those snowman cookies look yummy. They’re staple cookies every Christmas.

I love baking during the holidays and giving out homemade treats but don’t always have the time to make everything I want to. Those santa and reindeer Nutter Butter cookies are super easy and quick to make when you don’t have hours to spend in the kitchen.

I have such fond memories of my Mama spending hours in the kitchen makes tons of different cookies and candies for holiday gifting. It was so much fun just helping and talking with her.

Definitely going to try something new this year!

We do Christmas baking the first Monday of December every year. My favourite cookie we make is one we call Finger Cookies. Basically a shortbread cookie with pecans, rolled in icing sugar and shape like a finger. We are always looking for a new recipe or two to try. Thanks for some new ideas.

With a peanut allergy in our house, I have to look for fun creative homemade ways to spread Christmas cheer. This list is awesome inspiration for my holiday baking!

Those snowman look fun!

Thank you for sharing! I will be adding some of these to my list of goodies to make for the holidays this year.
