Happy baking!
1. Christmas Shortbread Cookies / Somewhat Simple
A list of Christmas cookie recipes just wouldn't be complete without shortbread. My favorite part about these is that with a drizzle of icing and a dash of sprinkles they've been made to look like little Christmas trees! Oh so cute and delicious!

2. Chocolate Star Cookies / Artful Homemaking
Don't these look amazing? And with their sweet chocolate stars, they're perfect for the holidays!

3. Raspberry White Chocolate Cookies Bars / Housewife How Tos
Want something a little different than traditional cookies? Try cookies bars instead! These look and sound wonderful with their decadent flavor combination of raspberry and white chocolate.

4. Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies / Crafting A Family
Peanut butter and chocolate are always a winning combination! Kids will love getting involved with this recipe. I bet a favorite part is popping chocolate kisses right on top of the warm cookies.

5. Snowball Russian Tea Cake Cookies / Brooklyn Farm Girl
These bring back so many memories for me. When I was a child, my mother would make these every year at Christmas. One taste and you'll know why. And Pamela's look like perfection! Click on over to grab the recipe. Perhaps they'll become a new tradition for your sweet family.
