Christmas time is coming soon–time to plan out the baking schedule. {Because it isn’t Christmas without some amazing Christmas cookies to eat and share with the neighbors!}. Today I have for you 12 days of my favorite Christmas cookies, so stock up on those baking essentials now!


 It’s definitely not Christmas without some gingerbread cookies, right? My favorite recipe comes from Si of A Bountiful Kitchen. They’re much easier to make than you think, even if you’ve never made them before. {This gingerbread dough can be made into gingerbread men}.

From Mel’s Kitchen Café comes this recipe for White Chocolate Cherry Shortbread cookies. Seriously, could they look any more appealing?

Continuing with the red-and-white theme, these Red Plaid cookies from Better Homes & Gardens really take the cookie platter. {I couldn’t say cake in a cookie post, could I?}. Anyway, don’t let the look of these cookies fool you–all you have to do is make logs of dough, with half colored red, then stack them together to form the plaid. Easy!

 One Christmas cookie on everyone’s list would have to be sugar cookies. There’s nothing like baking and decorating a batch to make it feel like Christmas! Try this basic sugar cookie recipe from Chow Hound.
