  6. Just starting my holiday baking this week. Perfect timing for this post. Can’t wait to try some of these recipes!

  7. I used to always make my chocolate chip cookies with a package of vanilla pudding then I stupidly thought that wasn’t gourmet enough and went searching for the perfect recipe. Thanks for the reminder…if it ain’t broke don’t fix it!!!! I am going to make these tonight!!!

  8. This is awesome! You are my go to lady for amazing cookie recipes. I have yet to try a cookie recipe of your’s that I didn’t love!

  9. I am so excited to bake holiday cookies this year thanks to you, Maria! These recipes look out of this world! I’m curious though, can all of your cookie recipes above be made ahead and frozen for a certain amount of time? Or, are there certain recipes that freeze better than others?

    1. Most of them freeze well. If the cookies have a glaze or frosting, wait to frost. Pull the cookies out of the freezer and let them defrost and then glaze or frost. If you have specific questions, please let me know! Thanks!

  10. Great round up of recipes! I’m hosting a cookie exchange party this week and will be sharing these recipes with friends

  11. Salted Caramel Macaroons were incredible. So were the vanilla chocolate chip cookies…soon i’ll be posting on the red velvet cheesecake…

    Can’t wait to print this whole website out. Thanks for sharing!

  12. I want to try one or two of these recipes. Which two are most people’s favorites and are they fairly easy to make?

    1. The brown butter salted caramel snickerdoodles are really popular! I love the soft gingersnaps with white chocolate and the toasted coconut, toffee, chocolate chip cookies! The peppermint patty cookies are fun too! I love them all:)

  13. It is a joy full moment when we give the gifts and sending wishes to our friends and family.Many people make those gifts and the crafts at home on the event of Christmas.that things which we made with our own hands are always better than other.

  14. I hope you are excited about cookie baking because today we are sharing 25 of the BEST Holiday Cookie recipes.

  15. Red velvet cheesecake cookies, seriously? My goodness… I’m about to eat my computer screen. Must… try… to bake these! Thanks a million for the recipe 🙂

  16. Do you happen to have a recipe you like for candy cane cookies? I’ve been using the one from my ancient Betty Crocker Cooky Book forever. The taste is amazing, but the dough is difficult to work with – splits while rolling.
    Thanks, Anita
