When it comes to the holidays, you can never have too many cookies. We’ve gathered more than 50 of our favorite recipes perfect for parties, swaps, gifting, and all-around holiday cheer. Try traditional Christmas cookies like gingerbread men, chewy molasses cookies, or gingersnaps, or go with crowd-pleasing favorites that are a hit any time of year, such as flourless peanut butter cookies, jam sandwich cookies, or chocolate-drizzled shortbread. And let’s not forget about bars, too; brownies topped with white chocolate and crushed peppermint will liven up any holiday cookie tray, while s’mores blondies will satisfy kids and grownups alike. To mix things up, we’ve thrown in some easy homemade confections: peanut brittle that you can make in the microwave; a rich, creamy fudge made with dark chocolate and walnuts; and classic buckeyes (peanut butter balls dipped in bittersweet chocolate). If you’re celebrating Hanukkah, our raspberry rugelach or easy gelt cookies—decorated with blue sanding sugar, if you like—will add a sweet touch to your celebrations. Don’t know where to start? Novice bakers might want to try something simple, like our foolproof chocolate chips or double chocolate chunk cookies, while those who like to experiment should tackle treats like cinnamon walnut balls, rolled in powdered sugar, or chocolate-cherry biscotti, baked twice to make them extra dry and crisp—all the better for dunking in your cup of coffee.
