With Christmas a few weeks away…eek! I am revving up my baking. ‘Tis the season for butter, sugar, and chocolate. Right? And to help you out on making your cookie plate look the best at the holiday party or the favorite plate that you deliver to family and friends my friends and I gathered 30+ of the BEST Christmas Cookies. And you will get a sugar high just looking at them.
Of course, I included my husband’s favorite in the round-up German Chocolate Cake Cookie. And if I could include more than one I would have also shared my Amazing Soft Sugar Cookies, that are my kids’ favorite and then my new favorite from this year is my Chocolate Pecan Pie Cookies.

It is our family tradition to go caroling to our closest friends and family and take them a plate of goodies, this year you can guarantee more than one of the cookies will make the plate.
Do you have any family traditions around the holidays? Share below in the comments I would love to hear and get some more ideas for my little family.
Enjoy and Merry Christmas (season)!
