My favorite Christmas cookies are Mincemeat cookies. The recipe is on the box, although most mincemeat comes in jars nowadays. They are very flavorful!
My favourite coolie is a recipe that has been in the family many generations and came with us when we immigrated. It is a simple shortbread cookie with a crust of
my favorite Christmas cookie is Ginger Creams. Delish!
My favorite cookie is Sugar top gingerbread cookies. My mom made these for us as I have for our family. Our daughter makes them every Christmas also. We all remember Christmas with my parents when we eat these cookies.
My favorite cookie is triple chocolate chip. My favorite Christmas theme is gingerbread. Love the outfits
The only two cookies I like are frosted sugar cookies and shortbread cookies.
My favorite Christmas cookies are my mom’s recipe cutout sugar cookies with her special frosting. They are absolutely the best and literally everyone who has tried them loves them. Now that my mom has passed away, making these cookies for my family is a sweet (see what I did there 😉) reminder of my wonderful mom.
My favorite has always been gingerbread at this time of year.
I love peanut butter blossom cookies with the candy kisses on top. I could and would eat the whole batch of cookies by myself.
My favorite cookie is one called “Jeans bars”. If you eat too many your jeans won’t fit. These are the best cookie I’ve ever had. The bottom layer is graham cracker and sweetened condensed milk. The next layer is chocolate chips and graham crackers. And the final layer is frosting with grated chocolate and crushed walnuts and peppermint on top. I don’t make them anymore because I’m trying to get back into my jeans, lol.
Thank you for the giveaway, this is always fun to look forward to.
My favorite Christmas cookie was one my mom only made for the holidays. I don’t know what’s it called but we just called them pecan balls. Little cookie balls with finely chopped pecans and covered all over with powdered sugar. They just melted in your mouth!! Now my mom is gone and I miss her making those cookies along with all the goodies she made. Never ever will I have those cookies again as I don’t have any of her recipes. She left too soon. ♥️
My favorite Christmas cookie is definitely the all time GINGERBREAD MAN. Making these with my granddaughters and icing them – then seeing their faces light up when they hand them out to the family as “look what we made today with Nana”. I’m yet to have anyone put one aside and not gobble them up. Anything with ginger is just amazing ❤️🤗😘
MY FAVORITE CHRISTMAS COOKIE IS what we called “chocolate-chocolate-coconut” but I think the real name was coconut island. They are really good because the bottom layer of chocolate is made with sour creme, so like a very rich chocolate ‘cake’. Then it is covered with chocolate ‘fudge’ and then finally coconut sprinkled on top.
My favorite Christmas cookie as a kid was my Aunt Minnie’s Springerly cookie. I don’t have one as an adult—I love most of them! LOL.
