10 Holiday Cookie Recipes You Have to Make This Season

Make these cookies this holiday season

Make these ugly Christmas sweater cookies this year for the holidays from A Dash of Megnut’s blog.

When the holidays come around, it’s time to make gingerbread cookies, gingerbread houses, and holiday cookies. Sugar cookies, peppermint mocha, and chocolate chip are among the festive holiday recipes that you can make, but the cookie options are endless. You can make a cookie that is very similar to peppermint bark in texture, a sugar cookie with a date filling, or cookies that are shaped like ugly sweaters. We’re getting in the holiday spirit with cookie making and so should you. That’s why we make it the theme of this week’s SWAT (Sharing With A Theme).

Here are this week’s highlights:

Peanut Butter Milk Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies

What better way to get into the holiday spirit than by making sugar cookies in the shapes of Christmas trees? That’s what The Baking ChocolaTess did. She also added in the flavors of peanut butter milk chocolate for an irresistible cookie recipe.

White Chocolate, Cranberry, and Pine Nut Cookies

Make a cookie with dried cranberries, pine nuts, and white chocolate. Aaron, blogger of The Hungry Hutch, says to grab a glass of milk and enjoy these wonderful cookies during the holidays.

Ugly Sweater Sugar Cookies


Instead of making gingerbread men for your holiday cookies, make ugly sweater cookies. Megan Hastings, blogger of a Dash of Megnut, decorated sweaters with red and green icing. You can even draw a reindeer on your ugly Christmas sweater cookie if you like. The ugly sweater possibilities are endless. Plus, it’s such a unique cookie to make. That’s why Megan Hastings is the winner of this week’s SWAT.
