Happy Holidays! This is one of our favorite times of the year...full of family gatherings, thoughtful gifts, delicious food and best of all - yummy desserts! Baking cookies and sharing them with our loved ones is a tradition in many families, including ours. We've pulled together a list of our favorite holiday cookie recipes. Maybe you'll even find a new one to try this year!

Gingerbread Men 

These cookies are a holiday favorite! It’s a rich and flavorful recipe that you can cut into any shape. Once cooled from the over, invite the kids to help decorate them!

Chocolate Chip Cookies 

A crowd-favorite, these are soft in the middle but crispy on the outside. To save time, make the dough ahead of time and freeze them into balls. Take them out and bake whenever you're ready...just add a few extra minutes to your baking time.

Raspberry Almond Shortbread Thumbprint Cookies

The raspberry jam perfectly compliments the almond flavor of the cookie. Try experimenting with different flavors of jam or even replace it with a hershey's kiss for a chocolatey treat!
