Christmas Cookies

Updated: Dec 13, 2020

The holiday season is upon us! One of the best things about the holiday season is all of the Christmas baking. I have compiled this list of all of my favourite recipes. These are all the recipes I believe are classics.

Shortbread cookies

These are super crumbly and melt in your mouth. With hints of vanilla and lemon.

Gingerbread cookies

Classic gingerbread, a staple for Christmas baking.

Peppermint bark

These are amazing. Super simple and so delicious. Dark chocolate layered with mint white chocolate and topped with candy canes.

Linzer cookies

These taste like little bites of Christmas. Winter spiced cookies layered with jam in between.

Tips & Tricks

When making numerous baking recipes it helps to be organized.

All of the cookie recipes are dough recipes that require soft butter. I like to leave out overnight on the counter if I plan on making the next morning.

Start with gingerbread cookie, you need to chill the dough before rolling. You can start making your next dough while the dough is chilling.

Use cookie boxes instead of tins! I find them so much cuter.


These are great!
