Christmas in July Cookie Celebration: BEST Christmas Cookie Recipes
I can’t believe we are already at the end of July but it’s never too early to start talking about our best Christmas cookie recipes, right?!
Time just flies by and the only good about that is that the quicker time flies, the closer we get to the holidays, which is a time of year that I love! While I wish time would just slow down, that’s one small thing to look forward to.
A Christmas in July cookie celebration is also a great excuse to start talking about Christmas, and I’m always up for that! I’ve teamed up with nine other bloggers to bring you this fun grouping of our favorite cookie recipes, and the one I’m sharing in this round up is one that we loved making last year and definitely plan on making again this year!
You can find the complete recipe for my Elegant Christmas Tree Cookies here, but I’ll tell you now that my favorite thing about this recipe is how easy it is, and how wonderfully fancy these cookies end up looking!
How to do a Christmas Cookie Swap:
Have you ever done a cookie swap? I’m a huge fan of Christmas party ideas, cookie making and decorating parties, and in the past my friends and I have joined forces to quadruple our recipes and then share cookies to make cookie platters for friends and neighbors. It’s a great way to come up with a wonderfully diverse plate of cookies, without having to make a ton of different varieties yourself.
Have everyone bake a certain amount of their favorite cookie at home and then when you all meet up, you can all exchange cookies! For example, if I make 200 of these Elegant Christmas Tree cookies and take them to the cookie exchange where other friends have each brought 200 of their favorite cookie, each person can leave with 10-20 (depending on your plan and group size) of the other people’s cookies and you go home still with 200 cookies, but about 10-20 different styles. How cool is that!? I love a good Christmas Cookie swap!
You can then use those cookies to give you on Christmas platters, or enjoy them yourself.
I love how pretty my Elegant Christmas Tree cookies look on a plate of other festive cookies and as you know, during the holidays – presentation is everything!
