The Best Holiday Cookie Recipes

Sharing is caring!

Christmas is literally right around the corner and I can’t even take it! I’m far from being prepared even a little bit. But I’m so excited to continue making holiday memories with my kids. When my mom set out to make Christmas cookies, she went all in. She broke out every cookie recipe and I think made like 5 batches of each. So exhausting! But the payoff was well worth it. I usually ended up helping her because you’d never catch my sister in the kitchen other than to taste test something. 😉 One of my most favorite cookies during the holidays was the peanut butter! Duh 😉 (I’m addicted to peanut butter and you can usually catch me with a spoon in the jar before bed haha)

So I thought I would share our peanut butter cookie recipe (plus 5 other recipes from my fav bloggers) with a twist.
