Best Christmas Cookie Recipes
Best Christmas Cookie Recipes – Every kind of homemade holiday cookies to make for your holiday baking boxes or cookie exchanges!
My go to combo for cookie boxes is:
1. Cut-out sugar cookies
2. Chocolate crinkle cookies
3. Pretzel M&M hugs (you can make the day before!)
4. Rice Krispie treats (you can make thees the day before too!)
If you need one more: I’d choose from gingerbread men, peanut butter blossoms, 7 layer bar macaroons, or make mini brownies with a boxed mix.
One thing to note – gingerbread men, peanut butter, and mint are all very strong flavors. So the flavors may transfer to your other cookies. I would recommend putting those ones in a plastic bag of their own!
