Five Festive Cookie Recipes

My family loves to spend time in the kitchen – cooking, baking, and eating, of course! My almost 18-month old is getting his first “taste” of baking cookies this holiday season. He especially enjoyed rolling Snickerdoodle dough balls in sugar!


We have ten recipes on our list this year, and thought we should share a few with you! We’d love it if you shared yours, too!

Mini-Mini M&M cookies
This recipe was spotted over the summer when we wanted a small mini-M&M cookie to use for homemade ice cream sandwiches. This one is perfect, and the almond extract adds a nice touch!

Careys Lemon Drop Cookies
Christmas (and really, most holidays!) tend to say, “Chocolate!” but these lemon cookies have a bright flavor and look great on a cookie plate.

Snickerdoodle Cookies (Dairy, Egg & Nut Free)
This thoughtful recipe is allergy-friendly but ready to be enjoyed by anyone! Check out Allergy Mom’s site for many more tried and true recipes sans dairy, eggs, and nuts.

Peanut Butter Blossoms
Remember to unwrap the Hershey Kisses while these cookie favorites are in the oven, because as soon as they come out it’s time to stick a kiss on top! Add some colored sugar when rolling the peanut butter balls for some extra color.

Holiday Rum Balls #1
Here is a treat just for the adults. It’s easy to mix all the ingredients in a food processor, though the extra tool is not necessary. They taste better after a couple days in the refrigerator!
