Top 10 Christmas Cookie Recipes

Christmas will soon be upon us, and that usually means lots and lots of baking (and eating, which is my favorite part). 

Here are my Top 10 Christmas Cookie Recipes:

Linzer CookiesA traditional Austrian cookie based on a torte that dates to the 1600s. 

A kid-friendly sugar cookie without a zillion sprinklesA container of sprinkles dumped on a cookie is not my bag, but this cookie is one both kids and adults adore.

SnickerdoodlesMy kids love these, and my mother will make them.  Im all about less work for me.

Bark— Though technically not a cookie but a candy, bark is a much-loved holiday treat that can come in all shapes, sizes and flavors.

No-Bake CookiesI remember my mom making these when I was a child.  She would spoon them onto wax paper on our ping-pong table in the basement.  Ahhh, the memories..

Sandwich / Macaron CookiesThere are zillions of versions of this cookie all over the online world.

Snowball CookiesAlso known as Mexican wedding cookies, the kids will love making these because of the powdered sugar bath at the end.

RugelachThis holiday cookies comes from the Jewish tradition.  Ive never been too interested in cookies with jams/jellies, but chocolate rugelach sounds divine.

Kiss cookiesThis is another cookie that takes various forms, using Kiss chocolate candies, Hugs candies, and Candy Cane Mint Kisses.

Rainbow layer cookiesThese are also called Venetian cookies, Neapolitan cookies, and in my world, they are called.heavenly.
