Holiday Cookie Guide

Holiday Cookie Guide

I can't believe that it's already December and that means that it is time to start thinking about Holiday cookie baking! You can never have too many cookies over the holidays whether for entertaining, giving them away as gifts or even just to snack on yourself. It's always nice to have a variety of cookies on your platter so that everyone can find something they like and perhaps even try some new ones! I have gathered a few of my favourite holiday cookies here to share with you and I will also be trying a some new ones over the coming days!

Although some cookies, like chocolate chip cookies, shouldn't be made until a few days ahead of time others, like shortbread and fruit cakes, will keep for weeks at room temperature and months in the freezer so you can plan accordingly to ensure that you are not swamped at the last minute with cookie baking. It's time to get your baking on!

My grandmother was born in Canada, and though she wasn't an especially dedicated or talented cook, she made Nanaimo Bars. When I was a kid we simply never saw them in the US. They're still fairly unusual, but they're just about the most delicious thing ever invented. Why they've never caught on in the US is a real mystery to me.

This is a fantastic list and I have bookmarked a few. But, those bacon chocolate chip cookies! Those will be first in the oven.

What a festive collection of holiday cookies Kevin! I used to go to an annual cookie exchange and it was always fun to come home with an assortment of all sorts of cookies.
