Cookie season is here, and I’m sharing 40+ of the best Classic Christmas Cookies and Candies for 2021. There’s something here for everyone to help get you into the holiday spirit.
Baking season is here! Spending the whole day in the kitchen, blasting Christmas music, and wearing cute aprons, is one of my most favorite traditions. I love baking cookies and making candy to put together some unforgettable cookie trays to deliver to friends and family.
It can be fun to bake cookies by yourself or as a group with your kiddos or grandkids to help. I also love doing a baking day with girlfriends and sisters.
Baking them is the fun and easy part. But, deciding which recipes to use is always the hardest part for me.
This Christmas baking season just got a whole lot easier. So right here is your one-stop Christmas cookie recipe shopping stop! You will see my compilation of favorite recipes, from Soft Gingerbread Cookies to 3 Ingredient Fudge.

Christmas Cookies and Candies FAQ’s
Christmas is known for cookies and cookie trays. Some of the most popular cookies at Christmas-time are Cut Out Sugar Cookies, Christmas Chocolate Chip Cookies, Soft Gingerbread Cookies, Shortbread Cookies, and Snickerdoodle Cookies.
Cookies can be made ahead of time. I like to make mine up to two days before I am going to eat them. However, you can freeze cookie dough in an airtight container for up to two months. Making the dough ahead of time and freezing it might be a great option to free up some time instead of baking all your recipes in one day.
Generally speaking, cookies are best when stored at room temperature in an airtight container. However, refer to each recipe specifically, as some cookies might be ok to refrigerate.
