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 perfect cookie box has 4 kinds of cookies
Any more types of cookies and it’s not an enjoyable experience for me.
My go to combo for cookie boxes is two make ahead cookies + two day of cookies!
1. Pretzel M&M hugs (make these the day before!)
2. Rice Krispie treats (make these the day before!)
3. Cut-out sugar cookies (make these the day of!)
4. 7 layer bar macaroons (make these the day of!)
If you need more: I’d choose any from the list below!
If you’re overwhelmed by the thought of making 4 kinds of cookies, I would just do one! This Christmas party chex mix is so fun, requires almost no baking skill, and it’s no bake! Package up the finished chex mix in plastic bags. You can tie a ribbon to close it up and add a little Christmas spirit.
A tip on flavored cookies in cookie boxes
Gingerbread men, peanut butter, and peppermint are very strong flavors. So the flavors may transfer to your other cookies if you put them in a box with other cookies. I would recommend putting them in a plastic bag of their own!
