I absolutely love baking cookies for Christmas, it’s become something that my family now expects every year. So I thought I would share some delicious Christmas cookies so you can impress your family and friends this year!
When I say I do a lot of Christmas cookies I mean it typically takes me 3-4 days to fully bake and decorate my Christmas cookies. I think my family’s favorites are my sugar cookies and my gingerbread cookies.

One of my favorite places to get cookie cutters is from ETSY. You can find just about any cookie cutter there and the quality is so much better than you find at the store.
We recently bought military cookie cutters for the Marine Corps Birthday and my husband baked cookies and decorated them (with my guidance). He was absolutely stunned at the amazing quality of the cutters.
