10 Christmas Cookie Recipes for the Entire Family

Family baking Christmas cookies

Baking Christmas cookies is one of our favorite holiday traditions, especially during the week of Christmas! Who doesn't love the aroma of fresh-baked cookies swirling through the house along with their favorite Christmas tunes? It's the perfect way to get excited about the holiday, and Clarence Claus loves it when you leave them out on Christmas Eve. 

Do you love traditional cookie recipes? If so, you can't go wrong with these three old faithful recipes: Sugar Cookies, Classic Gingerbread Cookies, and Chocolate Chip Cookies.

If you want to kick the festivities up a notch, below is a collection of seven different recipes that the entire family can help make: 

Christmas Pinwheel Cookies

It's impossible not to get into the Christmas spirit when you first see these pinwheel cookies. The sprinkles are the perfect festive touch!

Sugar Cookie Trees

Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree! We can't resist the urge to create a sugar plum forest with this adorable recipe. 

Ugly Sweater Cookies

Make use of your ugly Christmas sweaters by having the entire family wear them as you bake ugly sweater cookies. We heard that if you wear our Clarence Claus™ Ugly Christmas Sweatshirts while baking these, the recipe comes out even more delicious!

Chocolate Reindeer Cookies

Your family will have fun making all of Clarence Claus's reindeer with this recipe. Don't forget to keep a red M&M aside for Rudolph's nose!

Hot Chocolate Cookies

We think that these hot chocolate cookies will go perfectly with a glass of milk. These may be the best choice to leave for Clarence Claus on Christmas Eve! 

Peppermint Twist Macarons

Keep finding yourself with hundreds of candy canes after the holiday season? This recipe may be an excellent way for you to repurpose them, especially if they're peppermint flavor!

Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies

You're in for rave reviews from your family after they taste these cookies! The kids can add their magic touch when they sprinkle on the powdered sugar.
