Top Ten Favorite Christmas Cookie & Candy Recipes

My favorite time of year for baking is Christmas.  I rarely repeat a cookie recipe (always wishing to discover new things), but if I do… these are the treats I’m most likely to make again.

Click on the picture to view the recipe:

Chocolate Mint Wafers
Holiday Nuggets
macadamia nut butter toffee
Cinnamon Bun Cookies
Layered Peppermint Crunch Bark
Blackberry Sage Thumbprints
Gingerbread Truffles
Gingersnaps with Orange Ginger Cream Filling
cinnamon fudge
Sparkling Butter Toffee Cookies
Be sure to come back tomorrow to see what I’ll be serving up first.  I may be posting a little more than usual this month if the holiday baking bug bites me like it usually does.   I’ll have a whole bunch of Christmas treats to share with you!

    Yum! I will be trying a few of these this week in preparation for Christmas trays. I made your Ginger cookies over the weekend (not the ones posted on this page – just plain ginger cookies rolled in sugar) and we loved them. Thanks, Lori!

    that cinnamon fudge is a double edged sword–i can’t not make it and i can’t not eat the entire batch myself. :)

    I just made the sparkly butter toffee cookies last night and they were delicious! Now that I’ve seen the chocolate mint wafer, It’s a must make too!
