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 🙂
