9 Crazy Delicious Holiday Cookie Recipes 2016

Of course these delectable cookies are not just for the holidays — but, ’tis the season for cookies, so here are some of my favorite new recipes.  Holiday Cookie Recipes 2016 Truth be told, I wish I’d gotten this to you a few days ago — but let me tell you, the baking should not stop once Christmas and Hanukkah arrive!

Not only do I love baking (and cooking) year-round, but I especially love being in the kitchen between Christmas and New Year’s Eve.  For me it’s a (somewhat) relaxing time because the kids are off school, and we’re all just hanging out with friends and family — a time when there should always be cookies in the house and at the ready.

Every couple of years, I collect all of my newest cookie recipes and share them together.  This collection is from 2015 and 2016, plus one special favorite from 2014, The Everything Cookie.  A bonus, if you will. 😉

Happy Christmas Eve and Happy Hanukkah! Let’s bake!

    Great collection! You had be completely undecided as to a favorite until the very end with the brown butter oatmeal raisin! There is nothing better than brown butter in a cookie…and there is nothing like the aroma of the butter browning!
