Can you please share your favorite Christmas cookie recipe? I will be off the rest of the week, and I would like to bake some cookies for my neighbors. I know I could just find a recipe online, but I trust my fellow bees’ judgement on all things sweet!

This one is a favorite – well it’s really similar to the one I use. I use the nuts and drizzle white chocolate on top.
People lose their shit for coconut macaroons – I use a recipe with egg whites, no condensed milk. Sometimes I dip them in chocolate.
Russian tea cakes are always good: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/10192/russian-tea-cakes-i/
Ohhhh – this are really good http://www.marthastewart.com/333956/chocolate-thumbprints
I make a ton of cookies for the holidays. This year I made 5 diffferent kinds and made marshmallows dipped in chocolate. I gave some to my secretary yesterday and today she told me I should be a baker. Not sure what that says about my job skills.

This one seems to be a crowd-pleaser. I’ve been asked for the recipe many times.
I think they’re best with whole wheat flour

I could eat chocolate crinkle cookies for days! http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/chocolate-crinkles/941e22b3-9a48-4fb1-bdb0-27479e76d484
Would also highly suggest Pizelle but you’d need a Pizelle iron for them!

I love christmas baking!
I think sugar cookies are always a hit http://butterwithasideofbread.com/2016/02/copycat-swig-cookies/ When I make sugar cookies I like the refridgerate the dough for at least an hour or even overnight
Red velvet cookies (recipe uses cake mix, these are so good!) http://allrecipes.com/recipe/231745/red-velvet-crinkle-cookies/
I think fudge is also fun for the holidays and pretty easy to make http://www.marthastewart.com/281225/chocolate-fudge

They taste exactly like the almond pillow cookies from Fresh Market, which I love. They are a little bit of a pain to make, but so worth it.
The first time I made these was a few years ago when I was in college.. and I guess the recipe that I found was a bulk recipe and I didn’t look at the yield… so by the time I’d mixed up the dough part, I was like “Wow, this is a lot of dough…”, then looked at saw that the recipe yielded 4 dozen cookies. I was up alllll night baking them. I gave cookies to all of my professors, coworkers, friends and family because I obviously didn’t need to eat 48 cookies.. but would have because these are so darn good!

Easily my favorite cookie… http://www.averiecooks.com/2013/06/reeses-pieces-soft-peanut-butter-cookies.html
If I plan to make them ahead of time and freeze them, I usually leave out the Reeses Pieces.
