10 Easy Christmas Cookie Ideas

I’m sure most people are probably done with their Christmas decorating and onto Christmas baking? At least I am! We normally make the same cookies every year, decorated sugar cookies, thumbprint cookies, and nut crescents. But I always try one or two new recipes because you never know when you’re going to find a new favorite! Besides it’s fun to try something different.

10 Easy Christmas Cookie Ideas

So whether you need some new cookie ideas for your Christmas Cookie Swap or maybe you’re like me and just like to try a new recipe every year – here are  10 easy Christmas cookies that caught my eye!

Christmas pretzel cookies

I love sweet and salty. These Christmas Pretzel Cookies are from Wicked Noodle who has a printable recipe. The star shaped pretzels are fun but round ones would be just as nice.

These are Peppermint Pretties from Craftaholics Anonymous (adapted from Taste of Home). A shortbread type of cookie that doesn’t use eggs!

Melted Snowman Christmas Cookies

Aren’t these cute! What kid wouldn’t like a Melted Snowman Cookie? Tutorial on Truly Custom Cakery

Peppermint Patty Christmas Cookies

Peppermint Patty Christmas cookies from B-Inspired Mama. She uses a healthy substitute for fat that I’d never thought of using!

Mexican Mocha Crinkle Cookies

These have a little bit of a spicy ingredient. Mexican Mocha Crinkle Cookies  appropriately from A Spicy Perspective.

This is a little different take on a cookie we all love. Peppermint Crunch Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies from Culinary Concoctions. Try it with white chocolate to make it even a little more festive looking.

Praline Christmas Cookeis

Christmas tree cookies

These Christmas Tree cookies are made with ready to bake sugar cookie dough & M&M’s minis – from Real Simple. Anybody can make these!

Christmas 7 layer bar cookie

This is a really strong contender for our new cookie this year.  Holiday 7 Layer Bar from Midwest Living.
