More Christmas Cookie Baking Ideas

Today I start my holiday cookie baking!!!!  It has always been a tradition in my family to bake all sorts of different types of cookies and candies at Christmas time.  My mom would make at least 6-7 different kinds of goodies and keep them in containers out in our cold farm house porch throughout the month of December. When it was time to go to a holiday gathering she would load up a plate with a few of each of her goodies.

Now I carry on that tradition of making some of my childhood favorites for my family and friends, but I also like to try a few new recipes each year to find new family favorites. Here are a few recipes I've shared with you in the past to give you some inspiration of things you might like to make this year:

Peanut Butter Blossoms
Holiday Sugar Cookies (Butter Cookies)
Almond Flavored Spritz Cookies
Christmas Tree Stacked Cookie
Starry Peanut Butter Cookies
Holiday Sandies
Holiday Monster Cookies
Peanut Butter Christmas Mice
Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies
Chocolate Mint Dreams
Peppermint Swirl Cookies
Oreo Truffle Balls
Puppy Chow
Chocolate Cookie Bark
Chocolate Covered Marshmallows
Chex Mix - Classic Style

Click here to see what I've decided to make up this year for my line up of Christmas cookies.

One of my most favorite ways to get new cookie recipes is hosting or attending a Christmas Cookie Exchange.  Here are a couple links to past cookie exchanges that I hosted to help get some ideas on how to host your own:
