12 Days of Christmas Cookie Recipes II: More Festive Christmas Cookie Recipes You'll Love
It's that time of year once again. We're getting ready to trim the tree and, of course, try to choose our favorite Christmas cookie recipe. If you're having trouble figuring out what to make this year, never fear 'cause the Mr. Food Test Kitchen's latest free eCookbook, 12 Days of Christmas Cookies II: More Festive Christmas Cookie Recipes You'll Love will get you in the holiday spirit with dessert recipes provided by YOU!
We absolutely loved our first Christmas cookie recipe eCookbook, 12 Days of Christmas Cookies: A Free eCookbook From Mr. Food, and we knew we wanted to create a sequel. When we were thinking about what could make a sequel even more special, we had just the idea. We decided to get everyone involved! We asked our fans to submit their original Christmas cookie recipes, and boy, were we blown away by the incredible entries we received. After heated debate among the Test Kitchen members, we finally settled on our top 12 best Christmas cookie recipes and had all of you vote on your favorite. It was such a close vote, but Rosemary's Ricotta Almond Cookies (page 1) came out on top! This Christmas cookie recipe had smelled particularly enticing fresh out of the oven, so we understand why it won first place. We know you'll love the whole collection of easy Christmas cookie recipes, too, so feast your eyes on what this eCookbook has in store. Don't forget to scroll all the way to the bottom where we've got an exciting preview of all the yummy recipes you'll find in this free Christmas cookie recipe collection!
Let's face it. When it comes to picking out the perfect Christmas cookie recipe, you can never go wrong if you go the traditional route. They've stood the test of time for a reason, and you know that even the pickiest eaters in your family will grab a couple to munch on. We loved the simplicity of Karen's Buttery Sugar Cookies (page 2) 'cause they allowed us to personalize them any way we like! Add sprinkles, chocolate, fruit preserves...whatever! No matter what you prefer, your family's sure to love 'em. If you're looking for a simple Christmas cookie recipe that you can use to decorate to your heart's content, the Best Christmas Cookies (page 4) will allow you to do just that! Get out all your favorite mixins 'cause you're bound to have loads of fun with your loved ones. And when you want an easy Christmas cookie recipe for kids, the Sand Tarts (page 9) are sure to become a new classic in your household.
We're cutting to the chase and giving you exactly what you want: chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate! And if you pair these with a steaming mug of hot chocolate, boy you'll have a cozy evening on your hands! If you're looking to add a bit of a nuttier flavor to your baking, then we know you'll want to check out the Chocolate- and Pistachio-Dipped Cranberry Shortbreads (page 10). We especially love that includes one of our seasonal favorites... cranberries! If you want a late-night snack while waiting up for Santa, then the Christmas After-Dinner Cookies (page 12) is a sweet treat to keep you company. With a mint chocolate touch, it's a refreshing burst of flavor at the end of a meal. Share the cookie love this holiday season by baking up a batch of Cowboy Cookies (page 6). It's a classic chocolate chip cookie recipe that'll win the admiration of your loved ones.
You know the saying: desserts are better with a cherry on top. You all put that theory to the test with these easy Christmas cookie recipes, and we can't say we disagree. We see so many different Christmas desserts using cherries, and we love how they add a bright burst of color to any recipe. It really puts us in such a festive mood! Don't you love how colorful the Christmas Cherry Winks (page 5) look on the left? They remind us of reindeer noses! Not enough cherry for you? Don't worry—you've still got the Frosty Cherry Cookies (page 8) to try! They're quickies too with a baking time under 10 minutes. If you're looking for a holiday cookie recipe to contribute to the local bake sale or a universal favorite to bring to the cookie exchange, then this is the Christmas cookie recipe for you.
There are so many spices we love to cook with during the holiday season: ginger, cinnamon, vanilla—the list is endless! With so many different spices we want to bake with, we're glad we've got a few Christmas cookie recipes that have all our bases covered. If you're looking for something super simple, then we know you'll love the Spice It Up Cookies (page 7) 'cause they use one of our favorite shortcuts... cake mix! If you're intimidated by the thought of baking Christmas cookies from scratch, then these are a simple way to enter the arena. If you're one of those people that counts down the days until it's pumpkin spice season, then make sure you check out Grandma's Dressed-Up Molasses Cookies (page 11) 'cause they use pumpkin spice to add a warm, home-y touch. Cinnamon and ginger are a classic holiday spice combination that always yields some great desserts. That's certainly the case with Kristen's Ginger Crinkles (page 3). Pair 'em with a tall glass of milk, and you're set for a great night!

Here's a recipe that's anything but taxing! Uncle Sam's Pulled Pork is a budget-friendly, weeknight winner. In this recipe, we slow cook boneless pork butt to perfection with some chopped onions and a can of cola. A little BBQ sauce and it's ready to go! Just pile it onto a roll along with some of our homemade coleslaw and you're set for lots of "yum!"
