Christmas Cookie Favorites

Pictured above are my favorite Christmas cookies and candies. One of my favorite things about the holiday season is baking an assortment of cookies while listening to Christmas music and then giving half of them away while consuming the other half with my family. These are my Christmas cookie staples. Starting on the left and going clockwise we have: Peppermint Patty Cookies- Farm Chicks Cookbook, Lemon Bars- Cook's Illustrated, Peanut Butter Balls-, Chocolate Crinkles- Martha Stewart, Winter Almond Bark- Martha Stewart, Peanut Butter Blossoms- New York Times, Homemade Almond Joy- Joy the Baker, Chocolate Dipped Shortbread Cookies- Barefoot Contessa and in the center is a Butter Cookie with icing- Cooks Illustrated.

Merry Christmas!
