Every year since I moved out onto my own, I've baked up a hoard of Christmas cookies for myself, my family, friends and coworkers. For a while I was even participating in the Food Blogger Cookie Swap, hosted by my friend Julie at The Little Kitchen.
It was so fun to make cookies and send them off to bloggers that I didn't even know - and receive their awesome cookies in return! I thought it would be fun to share some of the cookie recipes I've posted over the years, including some created by my friend and content creator, Kari at CreateCraftCook.com.
Now, there are some meringue and bars recipes in here (brownies, actually), but they fit perfectly into this theme!
My top Christmas cookie recipe is actually this Christmas Cookie Bars Recipe and it gets so many views every holiday season! I've been making it for years and it's actually my second favorite! My other favorite is this M&Ms Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe! But believe me, all of these other recipes are equally delicious!
By the way, if you're wondering about my best Cookie Swap recipe, it's this banana bread cookie recipe I made a few years back! It's so freaking good, and does pretty well on Pinterest for me year-round! Just make sure to follow the instructions EXACTLY because it can be very, very moist and a little sticky once they cool. One day I'll figure out a way to make them "drier" but it probably won't be anytime soon.
