Does anyone have a great xmas cookie recipe.

I'm afraid to try mine, as I've tried several in past and they were awful. I've wasted money on xmas cookie mags and same story. Its never about the simple "great" cookie cutout.

  • Not to hijack your post, but my mom makes such great sugar cookies. I tried, but I just can't get them like hers. She also makes those wedding cake cookies, which are absolutely fantastic. I don't have her recipes though. I would google easy christmas cookies and see what you can find.

  • I JUST made some. SOOOO good!!! And pretty too!

    1/2 cup of butter or margarine, softened
    1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
    1/4 cup granulated sugar
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
    2 tablespoons milk

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
    In a medium mixing bowl, cream butter, sugars, salt and vanilla until light and fluffy. Blend in flour and milk. Stir in chocolate chips.

    Shape dough into 1 inch balls and place on ungreased baking sheets. Make a small indentation with thumb in the top of each ball. Use a teaspoon to place a small amount of raspberry preserves in each indentation.

    Bake 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from sheets and cool on wire racks

  • I recently posted several recipes (including picture tutorials) of my holiday favorites on my blog. The French cookies are a longstanding tradition...and we make 3 batches (each makes about 100 or so cookies) and they are all gone within a couple days!
