This roundup features my 16 All-Time Favorite Holiday Cookie Recipes! There’s a little something for everyone – take a look and find a new favorite.

Two days ago, I was on the phone with my mom and she asked me to come up with a list of recipes to appetizers and desserts for our family’s Christmas menu. I immediately panicked, thinking about all of the recipes I could make and wondering what to chooseMaking recipes is what I do, but choosing which ones to showcase during the most cookie-filled time of the year comes with a whole lot of pressure.

The internet is swarming with approximately a bajillion cookie recipes, and I can’t lie, I’ve contributed my fair share. So, to help us both choose our cookie recipes to share this Christmas day, I’ve compiled a list of my 16 favorite cookie recipes from my site to share this holiday season. I have recipes of all sorts, and some of my favorites are made with Krusteaz mixes so they’re SUPER quick and easy! I’ve loved developing recipes for Krusteaz this year, and their mixes are perfect when you need a last minute cookie. All of these recipes have been loved by me AND by readers who’ve tried them.

Scroll through my collection of favorites to find a few of your own :) happy baking! Cookies are listed starting at the top left and going clockwise.
