It’s the eve of the Eve bakers which means ’tis the season for cookies, cookies and more cookies! The man in the big red suit will be stopping by real soon for some cookies and milk so it’s time to break out the sugar and butter, crank up the oven and get baking. Look no further for the perfect holiday treats, cookie lovers! I’ve rounded up my ten favorite holiday cookies that will help you spread some holiday cookie cheer.

There’s a little something for everyone from fancy{ish} crinkled cookies and decadent sandwich cookies to classic biscotti and the best ever soft and chewy molasses cookies. Whether you are baking a batch for a Christmas cookie swap, holiday dinner, or just for fun, this is one-stop shopping for all of your cookie needs.

Chewy Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies

Brown Butter Chocolate Chunk Toffee Cookies


A crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside, jumbo cookie chock full of brown butter, homemade toffee bits and dark chocolate chunks. This cookie has it all and then some! These cookies will steal the show from Santa so take a tip from me and make two batches. You’ll be glad you did!

Brownie Cookie Sandwiches with Cookie Dough Buttercream

Mini hazelnut shortbread cookies dunked in melted dark chocolate and sprinkled with homemade toffee! Easy to make and oh-so-delicious, these little treats are a wee bit over the top in all the best ways! Created for Rodelle Kitchen’s Holiday Baking Challenge, you can find the recipe here.






You didn’t think I’d let cookie season go by without a double dose of chocolate, did you? These decadent whipped hazelnut ganache sandwiched between two dark chocolate slice-and-bake cookies have my whole cookie heart. Packed full rich, chocolatey flavor, these chocolate hazelnut sandwich cookies are sweet, petite, and positively delicious. And oh-what-fun it is to make a slice and bake cookie!



Just when you thought snickerdoodles couldn’t get any better, along came these chewy maple snickerdoodles. These snickerdoodles are a cookie lover’s dream. Soft and chewy with a hint of maple flavor and a sprinkle of sugar, this is one irresistible cookie!



Ok, so not technically a cookie but these loaded brownies will be the real MVP of any holiday cookie swap. If you are going to make brownies, you may as well go big or go home. These thick and fudgy brownies sit atop a chocolate granola crust, drizzled with salted caramel and dark chocolate, and finished with a dash of flakey sea salt. Go ahead…try to eat just one!



A rich and fudgy cookie spiced with a hint of cinnamon and a dash of cayenne pepper. Filled with a swirl of fluffy vanilla buttercream, these mexican hot chocolate sandwich cookies are the perfect blend of spicy and sweet. It’s a win-win for your taste buds plus you get two cookies in one and which makes these extra sweet.


9. Wanna-be Brownie Cookies


This wanna-be brownie cookie is loaded with three kinds of chocolate. Yep. You heard that right. THREE kinds of chocolate! We are not messing around here folks. If chocolate is the question, these cookies are the answer. These jumbo cookies are soft, fudgy and ridiculously delicious. Look no further for your new favorite cookie!



These gluten free peppermint brownies literally taste like the holidays and with their rich, ultra chocolatey flavor and fudgy texture, they are a treat that is meant to be shared. And the best part is these festive brownies start out with a box mix but you would never know it! These festive brownies are about as fuss-free as it gets and trust me when I say there won’t be a crumb left over.

Happy Holidays and Happy Baking!
