35 Of The Most Delicious Christmas Cookie Recipes You'll Find (2024)

35 Of The Most Delicious Christmas Cookie Recipes You'll Find (1)

There are many reasons to love the holidays, but Christmas cookies are definitely on the top of that list. With that in mind, we gathered together all the important Christmas cookie recipes you need to get through this season — we’re talking shortbread, sugar cookies and lots of peppermint. We have some great twists on classics, too (think crinkles with a mocha coconut upgrade).

We have easy recipes for the amateur baker, like holiday shortbread — seriously, anyone can make these — and then we have Christmas cookie recipes that require a little more work, like linzers. Give a few (dozen) of them a try. Because it isn’t really the holidays unless you bake some cookies, whether you’re a baker or not.
