27 Best Christmas Cookie Recipes




There are few things in the world more evocative of holiday memories than the scent of cookies baking in the oven — for me, the aromas of Mexican wedding cookies (or, “sand tarts,” as my grandmother called them) and sugar cookies cut in reindeer or ornament shapes is like Christmas bottled up in a scent. The big question? Whether to stick with the old favorites, or give some new more adventurous flavors a whirl. The answer, of course, is to do both, and this roundup of our 27 favorite Christmas cookie recipes is sure to include just the one you’re craving.
