This is my final recipe for Christmas Cookie Week but I am not done baking so stay tuned throughout the next few weeks as I share more cookies, breads, and sweet treats in anticipation of the Holiday Season.......
Welcome to #ChristmasCookies Week! That time of year when we soften the butter, fire up the oven, and make cookie trays for family, friends, and neighbors. This year more than 20 top-notch bloggers are sharing their very favorite creations for all to make and enjoy. Join us for a week’s worth of Christmas cookie deliciousness.
Many thanks to Ellen of Family Around the Table for hosting this event all week long.

These are a great Christmas Cookie for many reasons.
- The recipe is easy and fun to make. Roll your cookie dough balls in cinnamon brown sugar and use a glass to gently press them down.
- It makes a whole slew of cookies. 5 dozen wonderful cookies ready in no time.
- They are flat and easily packaged for shipping and/or giving. No need to worry about sprinkles coming off or chocolate kisses being squished.
- They freeze well. This means you can make these now, place them in the freezer in individual gift packages and just pull them out when heading to a holiday gathering or to send to school for the kid's teachers.
- Santa loves them. How do I know? Well, when I left those cookies out for him, there was nary a crumb left and I got a really great Christmas gift that year!!
These cookies bake up crisp on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. I will be including them on my tray when I go to my sister in law's Annual Cookie Exchange this year.
I hope you have enjoyed this Christmas Cookies Week and that it has helped you in your Holiday planning. Stay tuned as we share more holiday ideas as we celebrate Cranberry Week starting on Monday.
