Preview: Eighteen popular Christmas cookies for the holidays are collected here for your consideration. Don’t miss the gingerbread church house at the end.
What makes a cookie the most popular cookie at your house around the holidays? Is it because…
They remind you of somebody who always made them. (What cookie will you be remembered for?)
Maybe they are part of a tradition you followed as a child. (Is it a tradition worth passing on?)
Perhaps they are too much trouble to make more than once a year. (Cut-out cookies come to mind.)
Whatever it is, there’s always room for another cookie on the tray. Right? Take a look and see what you might like to add to your holiday cookie tradition.
What makes a cookie a popular “Christmas Cookie?”
Do you know what the most popular Christmas cookie is in the United States? According to General Mills, it’s the peanut butter blossom. At least that recipe is visited more than any other according to them. Interesting. Will you make them this year?
This is my criteria, but each cookie only has to meet one of them:
Look interesting or beautiful on a Christmas cookie tray.
The cookie is decorated with red and/or green colors.
It can be easy, like the Coconut Icebox Cookies while others are quite a project, like the Gingerbread church house.
