Looking for fabulous cookie recipes for the holidays? Look no further, we have compiled our Top 10 All Time Best Ever Christmas Cookie Recipes.
We are getting close to cookie time in my house. We will be baking and packing up treats for approximately 2 weeks to be delivered to our family, friends and people who have otherwise touched our lives. We call these our "gratitude baskets". We started the tradition in 2006 and I can't imagine stopping. Cooking and baking fills me with love and happiness. Being able to share that with others by giving homemade gifts is more a present for me.

With a love of Strabucks Cranberry Bliss Bars it was only a matter of time before that inspiration carried over to another treat. These are the epitome of the cranberry bliss bar perfectly packaged in a crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside cookie.
After eating these by the handful I decided it was best to freeze them and keep them out of my sight. You know they say out of sight out of mind. Sadly, that doesn't always work. So now I have started a whole new method to keep from eating them all.

Death by Chocolate….Cookie! Let’s take a moment to think about this. I love Death by Chocolate. Anything and everything I have ever created with that theme in mind has been to die for. No pun intended. OK, well maybe I did plan that out.

The days are escaping quickly which is a pretty good indication that Christmas is almost here. Another sign would be the four batches of sugar cookie dough that are chilling in the fridge waiting to be rolled and cut. Cookies to ship, cookies to go into Christmas gifts and also ones to fill the gratitude baskets we give out each year (to the people who have touched our lives - mail carrier, bank teller, mechanic, neighbor, cashier at Wal-mart. Anyone who has been special to us this year).

Peppermint is absolutely my husbands favorite holiday flavor. He would probably eat peppermint burgers if they were available. Peppermint ice cream (coming soon), candies, peppermint covered treats, peppermint cakes and cupcakes... Well I decided to transform a favorite cookie of ours into a candy cane cookie to surprise him. I served these at our Christmas party and they were devoured.

The holiday baking season wouldn't be quite the same without a few flavors. Eggnog and peppermint are two of those flavors and when I started planning out my baking this year I decided to begin there.

My munchkins new favorite 'cookies' are these Spiced Cranberry Banana Cookie Cake Bites! Soft and chewy, they are naturally sweet, moist and so healthy. I was quite surprised that my sugar princess enjoyed these so much. But, then again I love them too!

I have a little 'thing' for chocolate. I know most of us do. But, since my daughter was born I also have a 'thing' for simplicity. Sure, my best friends could tell stories of me spending days on end in the kitchen creating a fabulous cake with imported chocolates. But, that my friends was my pre-mom life.

Chocolate chip cookies have always been something that Chad and I disagree on. I make a ton of cookies around the holidays and I devour the chocolate chip cookies. I like them flat, crispy and chewy in the center. Chad doesn't eat them. He tells me he doesn't like chocolate chip cookies. He likes puffy, chewy cookies. I have finally found the perfect cookie to turn him into a chocolate chip cookie lover.

Sometimes when you are searching for healthy options for your loved ones (or yourself) you create a masterpiece. One that is better than the original. I tell you that it took us a few days to get a picture of these cookies. When I opened the container, I noticed more than half of the cookies were gone. WHAT!?!

First let me say, Chad has confiscated the cookies (apparently he thought being I got the pan of "that must have been good" Captain Morgan's Banana Rum Cake we were even).
