Christmas cookies are such an important part of my holiday. My grandmother used to bake dozens upon dozens of cookies in every variety that you can image. From traditional chocolate chip and sugar cookies to Italian specialties like pizelles and ricotta cheese cookies, we had a veritable smorgasbord of delicious holiday treats to choose from on Christmas morning.
I’m not much of a cook, but I can bake basic holiday cookies! They’re not as gorgeous as these featured treats from some of my favorite bloggers, though. If you want cookies that are good enough to give as gifts, these are the perfect place to start! Of course, you can also just keep them for yourself! I wouldn’t judge!
