We like to take time around the holidays to slow down, enjoy precious moments with our families, and savor the good stuff that we so often miss throughout the busyness of the year. Often times, some of our most memorable moments happen in the kitchen with loved ones (or gathered around a spread of delicious treats!). There are so many reasons to love the holiday season, but somewhere near the top of that list is our love for Christmas cookies.
Christmas cookies (and other treats!) have become so special to us over the years. Not because of our enormous sweet tooth (although that certainly helps), but because they’ve come to be symbols of rich family traditions and homemade gifts for the people who mean the most to us. Each year, we love baking our favorite tried and true recipes as well as trying out new ones with friends and family. So today, we’re sharing our team’s favorite Christmas cookie recipes for you to try. Next time you’re in need of a festive dessert, give one of these a try and let us know what you think!
“Chocolate crinkles!! We make these together every year and it’s become such a special memory for our family.” – Emily, Creative Director
“We love Sally’s Baking Addiction Snickerdoodles!” – Brittany, Director of Sales and Operations
“While I love a fresh baked cookie, my favorite Christmas treat is homemade fudge! I use Nutella, dark chocolate, and sea salt for the perfect combination of sweet and salty!” – Whitney, Art Director
“My family loves this recipe because it’s easy for any age. The toddlers can help, all the way up to MeeMa and PopPop!” – Dusty, Director of Community Development
“My go-to recipe isn’t a cookie – but it’s the perfect addition to any Christmas cookie tray. My friend Kyle brought this fudge to a Christmas Cookie exchange years ago. It’s been my favorite holiday treat since, and it can be whipped up in a matter of minutes!” Gina, Director of Marketing
“These Brown Butter Salted-Caramel Snickerdoodles are always my go-to for a holiday treat. They take a little bit of time to make, but they’re well worth the effort!” Hannah, Director of Content and Brand Partnerships
