Holiday Cookie Ideas from Our Families to Yours


I’m not much of a baker but I do love making cookies during the holiday season!  There is something about the smell of cookies baking that makes you feel warm and cozy inside.  I love making it a family activity and have the kids help me mix the ingredients and decorate the ones that need to be decorated.  And I know you’re not supposed to but really, who can resist eating the cookie dough?

I also love using recipes that have been made for our family for years.  My grandmother always had her Chocolate Chip cookies ready for us when my cousins, my brother and I arrived to her house.  She even use to send them in care packages when we were away at college.

Do you have a favorite Holiday Cookie or one you like to bake all year round?

Below are a few family favorites from our team members over the years!
