Cookie season is the best season of all. Baking Christmas cookies is my favourite holiday tradition to share with family and friends. From classic sugar cookies with royal icing, to gingerbread men, to peanut butter blossoms and buttery shortbread, you will find a cookie perfect for a big cookie platter, a cookie exchange with friends, or as part of a holiday cookie box. Today, I am sharing my 30 most popular and favourite Christmas cookie recipes.

Using sweetened condensed milk, makes it quick and easy to achieve a thick, fudgy texture without cooking raw sugar; no candy thermometer required! Cut the fudge into small squares and share it with family and friends as a delicious edible gift. (Source: www.foodnetwork.com)

These minty, pink-striped meringues are easy to make and use a clever decorating trick: Paint lines of food coloring gel up the sides of a pastry bag before filling it with meringue, and each cookie will come out striped as you pipe it. You can use this same trick with frosting for cupcakes.

Anne is a dark-chocolate fan so she chops it up with walnuts to make these oatmeal cookies nice and chunky. Top them with a sprinkle of sea salt to give them a little something special. (Source: www.foodnetwork.com Thanks to the help of a muffin tin, these peppermint-spiked sugar cookies are perfectly round every single time.
