We have officially reached the weekend before Christmas. Can you believe it?! My kids are so excited that there are only 4 more days until Christmas Eve…and so am I! But man, time sure does fly when you have a million and one things to do before a holiday arrives. And at the top of that list is making sure I have all ingredients I need from our remaining Christmas baking, including the stuff we need to make the cookies we leave out for Santa the night before Christmas.
We usually make a classic chocolate chip cookie because you can never go wrong with one of those and a cold glass of milk. But I always enjoy trying out new recipes, ,and so I’ve searched the internet high and low for the best Christmas cookie recipes and am sharing my finds here! No matter which ones you choose to make, I know you’ll have a lot of fun fun making (and eating!) them! After all, when it comes to Christmas cookies, it’s all about the memories, right?! And the big guy definitely won’t have any complaints about which ones are left out for him. So let’s get baking!
