WARNING! This Post may cause you to salivate and an extreme desire to bake….
One of my FAVORITE things to do during the holiday season is bake cookies! So I compiled a list of 20 awesome Christmas Cookie recipes that’ll be sure to please everyone in the family. I also included 5 cookies that are paleo and grain-free…see I told you there’s a recipe for everyone!
1.Russian Tea Cakes

These are one of my favorite and a staple in my cookie baking. Some call them snowballs (perfect name for this time of year) or Mexican Wedding Cakes, but regardless of their name they are the easiest cookies to make and don’t require many ingredients to make at all. Plus, they are super tasty 🙂
2. OREO-Peppermint Bark
Don’t these just look delicious?!? This one I am for sure trying.
I love everything about these and better yet you won’t be stuck having to use cookie cutters 🙂
3. Funfetti Shortbread Bites

No holiday would be complete without a ginger cookie, now I’m not one for crunchy cookies, I’m a chewy gal all the way… so these fit the bill!
6. Golden OREO Cookie Balls
This dessert is perfect for any sweet tooth wanting to get into the holiday spirit!
7. Melted Snowmen Oreo Balls
Oreo truffles are great for any occasion, I love to make them because they don’t involve baking, are easy to make and don’t require a ton of ingredients. Making them into snowmen?!? You now have the perfect Holiday treat, that the kids and adults will love!
8. Razzy Jammy Thumbprints
