12 Days of Christmas | Favorite Cookie Recipe


when i was a little girl,  my mom and my grandmom would get together and make cookies.  they divided the cookies and put them into giant holiday tins.  in my memories, there were so many kids of cookies. . .thumbprint, russian tea cookies, chocolate chip, and holiday spitz cookies we pressed out.

i've never been able to duplicate the variety of cookies, but I do try to make a few each year and I have a holiday tin to store them in.

none of my cookie recipes are original - my mom has a 1963 Betty Crocker Cooky Book that many of our holiday cookie recipes come from.

do you bake holiday cookies? For more recipes check out A Life in Balance.

catch you soon -


  1. I love the chef's hat and apron!

    So, what's your favorite cookie to make? I've love to succeed with the pressed cookies, but haven't yet. I do best with the roll out cookies, and the kids love decorating them.

  2. I have a cookie cookbook, and I made delicious chocolate chip cookies from them. This year, though, I really want to perfect a decorated sugar cookie. I mean, what's Christmas without them?

  3. Just baked a bunch of cookies last night! I am determined to make some more though. At least a batch of "chocolate krinkles" if I can find the recipe I clipped out of a newspaper years ago.
