Why are These Christmas Cookie Ideas so Marvelous?
I originally published a post about winning a Christmas cookie recipe contest with the LA Times many years ago. The winning cookies are featured in the photo below the following two of me in the LA Times test kitchen.
“My very own Snow Cookies were chosen as one of the LA Times Top 10 Favorite Cookies this year!” It was one of my very first food contest wins, so as you can see, I was very happy!
I took a platter of my award-winning snow cookies to a food blogger cookie swap. My snow cookies didn’t last long at the event; everyone loved them!
Ever made a yule log? It’s delicious and much easier to make than you think!
Every year, I love to bake treats, cookies, biscotti and more to give to friends and neighbors. Home-baked goods are always so appreciated, especially when they are delicious cookies!
I know good a good cookie recipe (and good food bloggers), so all the recipes I’ve collected and shared on this list are made from whole/real, minimally processed ingredients by trustworthy recipe writers.
You won’t find any boxed cake or cookie mixes, pre-made frostings, or exhorbitant amounts of sugar. Wrapping the cookies can be as simple as a food-safe bag and some ribbon or yarn, or extravagant tins, pretty boxes or festive baskets.
