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 the next week 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.

I am working on a list of our favorites and the cookies that will be included.  Of course I think my family would disown me if I did not include our famous Pecan Pie Bars and Outrageous Brownies in their baskets not to mention our Decorated Christmas cookies.  My favorites are the snowflake cookies.  I decorate a 5 point star cookie and it looks like the most spectacular cookie ever. I may have to put together a tutorial for that cookie so you can make them too!

I know this isn’t a cookie, but I have to mention my latest obession: Crockpot Candy is the easiest and most impressive homemade candy
ever.  A rich chocolaty, peanutty 4 ingredient recipe that you simply
toss in the slow cooker, stir a few times and scoop it out.  It doesn’t
get much easier than that!
