You'll find everything from shortbread cookies, gingerbread people, classic sugar cookies, coconut macaroons, and dressed-up store-bought cookies.

Most of the year we're all about healthy recipes here. (We've even put together a post about the best healthy cookies.) But come Christmas, we like to treat ourselves. And that means indulging in all the browned butter, cream cheese, cookie cream sandwiches, sweet brown sugar, chocolate dipped, raspberry jam-filled, and chocolate chunk cookies with all the red and green sprinkles and candies around.
It's a glorious time of year when we can feel free to live it up and eat all the white sugar and flour cookies with zero guilt attached. Although we have included a few gluten-free cookies (like these Holiday Spiced Almond Shortbread Cookies) that are so good no one would ever think they are gluten-free.)
Whether you're looking for traditional Christmas cookies or a holiday version of your favorite oatmeal raisin or peanut butter cookies, we've got you covered.
