WHO ELSE REMEMBERS ALL THEIR FAVOURITES TASTES AND SMELLS FROM CHRISTMAS PAST? CHRISTMAS COOKIE RECIPES ARE SUCH A HUGE PART OF THE HOLIDAYS – THIS YEAR, WHY NOT ADD THESE TASTY TREATS INTO THE MIX!
When looking for some inspiration this year, I began with Christmas cookie recipes. After all, is there anything better at Christmastime than the smell of freshly baked cookies coming out of the oven?
The scents of baking evoke so many wonderful memories for me and this year, I told myself I would be adding to those magical moments. I decided that my family would be getting homemade goodies this year. I’ve never had time to do it before and now, it’s “technically” work! That’s what I call a WIN!! So – where to start?
Well, I reached out to some blogging friends and dug into my own cookbooks and I’ve come up with this list of Christmas cookie recipes you NEED to make this year!
So, let’s get to it. The good stuff. Man, I’m getting hungry just thinking about it! Because I have a really small kitchen, I’m not like some people that do a marathon of baking over the course of one or two days. I’m splitting it up, trying one or two recipes a day, giving me space to work. I went out and bought myself this gorgeous mixer and I love it. It was time to retire my old machine, and a cookie round-up seemed a pretty good reason for some new hardware!
As this is the season of giving, I really wanted to give a shout-out to some fellow bloggers, so here are some of my favourite recipes, with links to their blogs:
Let me tell you, there are some AMAZING tastes wrapped up in this list! You’ll want to be sure to try each and every one of these recipes, and while you are at it, stay and check out each of the blogs. These ladies have some REALLY great stuff to offer, and you’ll learn something new from each of them!
I can pretty much guarantee that you’ll want to share the love when you whip up these Christmas cookie recipes, so I’ve created some FREE Printable Recipe Cards for you to download! Print them out, fill them in and give the recipe AND the cookies to your favourite people! Just use the form below:
Now, I also mentioned that I dove into my own stash of recipes for some inspiration. My mom has been making the same Christmas cookies each year for as long as I can remember, and I think her mom was making them for as long as she could remember as well. And that is something else that I LOVE about Christmas baking – the tradition.
The tastes and smells from my childhood holidays make me smile and recall such happy times. I’ll be putting together a collection of our family recipes to share, but that will be on another day.
For now, I’m off to make another batch or two of cookies from this amazing list of Christmas cookie recipes you need to make this year. Be sure to try them out, and let them know how much you LOVED them!
