I'm not the best cook, but I really want to try to make some good cookies this year. What are your favorite cookies, and are they hard to make? If you want to share a recipe, that would be great, but even just a recommendation would be appreciated. Thank you.

I love the peanut butter cookies with the Hershey's kiss on them.

I love snickerdoodles, cookie candy (no bake cookies), soda cracker candy (not cookies, but still)...

No bake chocolate cookies.
You cook them in a pot but you don't bake them. Easy to make but you have to stir constantly or they will burn.

I also vote for peanut blossoms. Super easy cookie to make and yummy at that! I also like to make M&M cookies with red and green M&Ms. I always do a cut out of some sort so the kids can decorate them. I have resorted to buying sugar cookie dough the last couple of years though. My homemade ones never turn out and honestly, no one even eats them after the kids pile them up with sugar.

My Aunt used to make Mexican wedding cookies at Christmas. Super easy and delicious

Pecan fingers. They are melt in your mouth delicious, even if you do always choke on powdered sugar.

|Posted: 10/13/2013 8:16:28 PM|BelleMagic's cookies for sure! They won me 1st prize in a cookie exchange. I do 1/2 and 1/2 on extract (1/2 vanilla and also some almond extract) because I love almond flavor. I did them for Christmas with a winter light blue and did white ball sprinkles on top.
These are amazing! I like to make the PB base and let it chill for a 30 mins or so in the fridge and than add the top layer (choc) and spread it an put it back in the fridge. Before I cut it I let it warm up a an hour on the counter so that I cut it in squares and the chocolate won't crack.

Gingersnaps and gingerbread, for sure.

And I had to google this BelleMagic dead aunt cookie recipe, and got a link to this 2010 post. Interesting. https://www.twopeasinabucket.com/mb.asp?cmd=display&thread_id=3024052

The year I did BelleMagic's Christmas cookies, I had to leave the cookie swap early, so I had people running out to my car to catch me to find out the recipe.
Otherwise, my favorite is just what flavors I happen to be "feeling" for each year.

FOr three main reasons:
1. SUPER easy to make
2. You can use any preserves you like
3. EVERYBODY loves them.
I normally gravitate to cookies that have chocolate, but this is one non-chocolate cookie that I absolutely love!

I made some red velvet cookies last year and my kids still rave about them! Found the recipe on Pinterest. It was a soft chewy cookie. Yum.

An American friend sent me a recipe last year for molasses spiced cookies - they were lovely.
My other favourite festive cookie is shortbread.

Land o Lakes. I've made them every year since and people beg for the recipe. I could eat an entire batch. Sigh.

I see someone already posted them. They really are that good, my favorite cookie ever.

Raspberry Almond Thumbprints are popular in my family. As are Italian Fudge Roll, Buckeyes and decorated sugar cookies.

Some of these I don't really consider Christmas cookies, more like "any time." I love the peanut butter bars that 2pea faithful posted but I make those whenever the mood strikes. As well as cracker candy. And snickerdoodles. And cake or oreo balls.
My very favorites to bake at Christmas are sugar cookies, pnut blossoms and Russian teacakes.
Now I want something sweet....
|Posted: 10/14/2013 11:51:00 AM|That's a good question! I just went through Pinterest and started following several Christmas Cookie boards.
I love a good Spritz cookie, buttery and flaky. And I don't know what they're called but they are chocolate then you roll them in powdered sugar and they expand and "crack" when you bake them.
The Mexican wedding cookie is good too. It appears I have a few that I enjoy.
