16 Christmas Cookies You NEED

Don’t miss out on the easiest and tastiest cookies this Christmas season.

From the cookbook: 16 Christmas Cookies You NEED


If you like cookies, Christmas truly is the most wonderful time of the year. A batch of cookies is perfect for all those holiday parties, gifts for teachers, neighborhood get-togethers, and, of course, to put under the tree for everyone’s favorite jolly elf. What’s especially fantastic is that cookies can be quick and easy to make if you don’t have a lot of time, or if you want to add some pizazz, you can go all out with decorating them. Either way, a good cookie is always a hit.

In 16 Christmas Cookies You NEED, I’ll share some of my favorite cookie recipes with you, from a fun and whimsical twist on the Gingerbread Cookie to a Grinch-inspired recipe that will have every kid (and kid-at-heart) smiling as they reach for these treats. You’ll LOVE the Done In A Flash Holiday Cookies not just because they’re delightful, but also because you can make them in just over 20 minutes, from start to finish.

Lest we forget, baking cookies should be fun, and the Polar Bear Cookies might be one of the most fun recipes you can make together with kids. These cookies really are the cutest little things. Or if you have a full oven already, the No-Bake Eskimo Cookies are perfect; once you prep them, they just have to sit in your refrigerator for a little bit.

In all, this cookbook has 16 easy and delicious cookie recipes that are simple and fun to make, and even more fun to eat. Each recipe includes all the ingredients and instructions you need to make these cookies, along with full-color pictures of each recipe, so you have both guidance and inspiration when you make your own cookies at home.

Plus, five of the cookie recipes in the 16 Christmas Cookies You NEED cookbook are featured in the accompanying TV cooking show. I’ll walk you step by step through them, and share plenty of tips and suggestions along the way, such as how you can get more out of your ingredients.

Christmas Cookie Trees

It’s so fun making these Whimsical Gingerbread Trees. This recipe does take a little time, but the results are well worth it. Start by combining your brown sugar, flour, and spices in a mixer, then add the butter, along with a little milk. Mix well, then slowly add the molasses (Yum!).  Form the dough into a ball (or two if you think that will be easier to work with). Place the dough on parchment paper and put it in the freezer or refrigerator for about 20 minutes.

When that’s ready, roll out your dough. Cut out your stars and bake them for about 15 minutes. While they’re in the oven, make the Royal Icing.

Once everything is ready and your cookies have cooled off, it’s time to assemble the trees. Just dip the star tops into the icing and stack them largest to smallest. The icing will hold them together. These adorable cookies make a gorgeous display, and you’re sure to get plenty of oohs and aahs.


While the Whimsical Gingerbread Trees are easy, but do take a little time, the Polar Bear Cookies are quick to put together – for all those last-minute parties. These are sooo cute, and kids love them. All you need are Double-stuffed Oreos, M&Ms, white chocolate candy melts, and some chocolate chips.

Carefully open up an Oreo and place two candy melts up top for ears, then seal the cookie back up. (The cream filling will keep the “ears” in place). Dip the cookies in melted white chocolate, place it on wax paper, and add the nose. Once they dry, use some of the melted white chocolate as a “glue” to add the M&M nose and the chocolate-chip eyes.

That’s all there is to it! You can put a full tray of these together in almost no time.

Get the entire recipes and instructions for the Whimsical Gingerbread Trees, the Polar Bear Cookies and 14 more amazing treats in 16 Christmas Cookies You NEED right now. Plus you can enjoy instant access to hundreds more recipes in the RecipeLion Gold Club’s Library of cookbooks, recipe videos, and magazines that come with your membership.

Every one of the recipes in 16 Christmas Cookies You NEED is a winner. I love making these for holiday parties and to share with friends. And since these recipes are kid-friendly, making them can be a fun family activity. After you make these first two cookies, try making:

  • Peanut Butter Chocolate Snowballs—Peanut butter and chocolate are a sublime cookie combination, and you don’t even have to turn your oven on to make these.
  • Easy Holiday Cutout Sugar Cookies—I have a foolproof recipe for these, that’s easy and perfect for Christmas. Trees, ornaments, stars – the choice is yours!
  • Candy Cane Hot Chocolate Thumbprints—What’s better than a hot chocolate on a cold night? How about hot chocolate and a cookie? This recipe is the best of both.

16 Christmas Cookies You NEED is the only cookie cookbook you need this holiday season. Along with the five featured recipes, you also get:

  • Coconut Snowballs—You only need four ingredients to make these rich, unique and super-enjoyable sweets.
  • Rudolph’s Rice Krispy Treats—If you think regular Rice Krispy Treats are good, wait until you try these! There’s all kinds of caramely, chocolaty goodness in this recipe.
  • Sweet Frosted Sugar Cookie Bars—Topped with a vanilla buttercream frosting and plenty of sprinkles, this isn’t so much a cookie as it is a bite of sweet euphoria.
  • Plus get eight more simple and delicious recipes that are a snap to put on your dessert table…

And don’t forget, every cookbook comes with easy-to-follow recipes and instructions, and full-color pictures of each dish—read it all on any device or print it out for easy use in your own kitchen.
