Christmas Cookies

It's December.  While I adore making cupcakes (and I think this month's open-ended Mystery Cupcake Challenge sounds like a great idea), to me, Christmastime means cookies.

So, now I just have to decide what cookies I want to make. 
  • I know I definitely want to make some sugar cookies.  Last year, I got some great cookie cutters in Christmas shapes for Christmas.  I think some sugar cookie trees and angels sound delightful. 
  • I'm also thinking about making some thumbprint jam cookies.  Cookie+strawberry jam = wonderfulness that is totally worth the calories.
  • Peanut butter cookies.  This comes from the girl who keeps a jar of peanut butter at her desk and snacks on it by the spoonful.  Are you really surprised?
  • White chocolate cranberry.  I absolutely love these cookies, but I can only make them during the holidays.
What are your favorite holiday cookies?  


  1. We just had a cookie baking weekend at Rob's mom's house with some relatives, so much fun! We made a bunch I had never had before, a lot of German cookies. We also made a version of the thumbprint jam cookies, but they called them bird's nests. But my FAV holiday cookie will always be the Cornflake Holly Cookies! Probably because I have loved them since I was a kid. Marshmallows & margarine melted together, with vanilla, green food coloring & corn flakes mixed in, with 3 red cinnamon candies on top :)

  2. The strawberry jam bar cookie from Grandmom.
