Brownies and cookies together? Yes, please! 

I'm not usually a shortbread girl, but these look delicious. I love the large sugar crystals that are used on the edge - it adds a bit of whimsy to an otherwise simple dessert. 

Definitely on my list to try this year. Don't they look so good?! 

This is such an easy and delicious option! I've been making it for years and it is always a hit. 

These look a little more labor intensive than some of the other options, but they would be fun to bring to a cookie party or serve after Thanksgiving dinner! 

I've never made gingerbread cookies, but am tempted to try to this year! I love this classic Christmas cookie. 

Another simple option that is delicious! 

A very simple option that is always a crowd-pleaser. I love the idea of decorating with different holiday-colored sugars or doing the red striping.

We make these every year and they are so good. Hands down, my favorite Christmas cookie. 

I call these, "Pecan Dreams" during any other season, but love the festive title for the holidays. These actually melt in your mouth, so you know they're good! (I would use pecans versus walnuts.)
