Every year we ask our devoted subscribers to choose the best cookie recipe they have tried, baked, and loved. Because there are too many cookies to choose from, and Christmas is no time for experiments. We want the best of the best, the gooiest of the gooey, the chewiest of the chewy, and the softest of the soft and the yummiest of the yummy.

Are you ready to crumble?

It won’t be easy to choose one of these cookie recipes. You might want to plan twelve days of cookie baking. And make some extra, cause all of these are so good they disappear in minutes. You have been warned!

Who Invented Cookies?

Bakers initially created cookies to test oven temperature. They’d put a small dollop of cake batter and bake it to check if the oven was ready.

Why Do We Bake Cookies for Christmas?

Cookies and Christmas have been together since medieval times! Cookies are the first-ever Christmas presents. They were shared as gifts alongside sweets when visiting friends and family.

Why Do We Leave Cookies for Santa?

This well-known tradition wasn’t a thing until the 1930s. As it was a financially trying time, many parents encouraged children to share and be charitable. And the beautiful tradition stuck, and Santa gets cookies every year now.

What Was the First-Ever Christmas Cookie?

German lebkuchen, more known now as gingerbread, was probably the first cookie traditionally associated with Christmas. And Animal crackers actually started as Christmas cookie ornaments!
