Cookies seem to be an integral part of holiday festivities, so I’ve rounded up 10 holiday cookie recipes that are my go-tos. Although decorated ones add an extra special touch, there isn’t always time to decorate, so these ones are delicious on their own too!
There’s something so cosy about baking in the winter time, and eating and sharing Christmas cookies always brings about feelings of nostalgia for me. My mother always made a variety of traditional Swiss cookies (the recipes of which I’ll be sharing here eventually), and shared them on December 6th for St. Nicholas day, as well as for Christmas. The cookie roundup here are all cut out cookies, I hope you have a lovely time making and eating them!

These one have holiday “chocolate chips” in them, but make them with or without the chips, the cookie base is the same delicious classic!

Kind of reminiscent of a cookie brownie, this is one of my most popular recipes. If you’re a chocolate fan, these are definitely a must make.
