#1 Peanut butter reindeer cookies
I love these peanut butter reindeer cookies.
The cookie is chewy due to its easy, chewy peanut butter base.
Then the peanut butter reindeer cookies are topped off with an M&M candy for the red nose, choco chips as eyes and pretzels as its antlers.
This sweet and salty combination is oh-so-perfect!
#2 Christmas tree and reindeer cookie
This crunchy Christmas tree and Reindeer cookies are one of the cutest designs to go on the Christmas table.
They are so easy to do that your kids will have fun making them!
#3 Christmas spiced biscuits
With the help of an embossed Rolling Pin, these Christmas Spiced Biscuits are adorable.
The smell of the spices when baking them will surround your kitchen with the holiday spirit.
And the kids will surely be eyeing when they come out of the oven. LOL.
My choice for a good Christmas embossed rolling pin here:
#4 Santa’s cookie and milk
This decorated Santa’s wish list cookie tops my list! For me, this one is the most creative of all the Christmas cookie recipes I shared with you! and super cute too!
#5 Christmas pudding cookies
If you’re not familiar with Christmas Pudding, it’s because it is more popular in the UK and other Irish/British countries.
Nevertheless, these Christmas Pudding cookies are chocolate sugar cookies, decorated as the traditional Christmas Pudding.
And they sure do look cute, with the white frosting pattern and green holly on top.
#6 Snowman cookies
You have to juggle your time between work assignments and bringing the kids to their piano or swimming lessons.

#8 Wreath Cookies
This wreath cookie recipe is another great amp-up, off-the-shelves cookies for the busy bees out there!
The base of the cookie can be a shortbread cookie or any cookie with a hole.
The fun starts when you start decorating with little candies.
Perfect for a fun activity with kids of all ages.
#9 Decorated Grinch cookies
When you think about Christmas, the famous character, which you will be reminded of, is Sant… huh, no.
Of course, it is the Grinch with its green grumpy but also mischievous look.
This recipe is definitely out of the traditional round cookies as it will make your long cookie stands out of the crowd.
The chocolate or vanilla sugar cookie sticks are perfectly shaped for dunking in a glass of milk or a mug of hot chocolate, during those cold winter nights.
This creative recipe will take some time but with some patience, your efforts will pay off!

#10 Snowman Meringue Cookies
I haven’t forgotten our vegan friends.
These snowman-shaped Meringue Cookies can be made totally vegan by using aquafaba, which is bean water instead of eggs.
Upon baking, the cookie will be crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside, as it should be!
I’m sure your hubby and kids will love these sweet, crisp, airy and completely adorable cookies!

If you’re like me and excited to go back to the Kingdom of Arendelle in the upcoming Frozen 2 movie, your kids will be so thrilled to get their cookie with Frozen-style colors!
These classic, easy-to-bake, cookies will be sprinkled with the blue frost colors, making these so sweet!

#12 Elf on the shelves sugar cookies
The Elf on the Shelf story depicts Santa’s elves busy scouting little kids to know who have been good or naughty.
It’s hard to believe that the adorable elf pictured on these Elf on the Shelf Sugar Cookies can get into so much mischief while sending behavior reports to Santa. LOL.
