Christmas cookies. Everyone eats them and everyone loves them. This post has four easy Christmas cookie recipes that even kids can help with!! They include the best sugar cookies and amazing peppermint cookies!!

One of my favorite, favorite, FAVORITE things about Christmas is all the baking. I love to back Christmas cookies with my family. I have 4 family favorites that I have previously blogged about, put together in this one post.


Number one is super easy peanut butter cookie. It starts with a premade peanut butter cookie mix, making it super quick. They are the perfect chewy cookie with a chocolate treat.

Peanut Butter Stars


These fantabulous monster cookies (aka Wookies: big, chewy, and brown) are jazzed up for the holidays with the addition of festive Christmas M&Ms.

Monster Cookies


These are Fofo’s favorite cookies ever!! A dark chocolate cookie base is topped with a candy cane kiss. A decadent Christmas treat.

Peppermint Cookies


Christmas is incomplete without super soft sugar cookies topped with frosting, or in this case an easy spreadable glaze so the kids can help! Because after all, what good are cookies without someone to share them with?!

Sugar Cookies

What are your favorite Christmas cookies? What do you love most about the holidays?

  1. Ooooh, all of these look great! Now where do I pin this? My Christmas board or my cookie board. The stress! The angst!

    I love my mom’s whipped shortbread cookies. Toffee Cornflake cookies are pretty darn good too.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Wishing you a lovely weekend.

    1. I would say on the cookie board. They are good year round 🙂

      I LOVE shortbread cookies. Yummo!!

      I hope you had a wonderful birthday weekend 🙂

  2. My husband would love those monster cookies! In our house, it’s not really Christmas unless there are spritz cookies in the shape of wreaths, dyed green and topped with red hots.
