#27: Vintage Pecan Tassies - It's not Christmas with out a platter of Vintage Pecan Tassies on the table. The best Christmas cookie recipes incorporate some of the most popular flavors of the season and this pecan tassie recipe is no different. Brown sugar and pecans combine to create a comforting holiday flavor that will make you just want to curl up by your fireplace. So, this holiday season, whip up a batch of pecan tassies and watch your relatives make them disappear.
#26: Andes Pinwheel Cookies -- Chocolate dough and minty dough swirls together to create Andes Pinwheel Cookies. You will love the flavors in this tasty cookie recipe so much that you may find yourself craving these treats on a daily basis. Mint extract dominates the green mint swirl while Andes chips are peppered throughout the chocolate part of each cookie. Because of their minty flavor, these Andes cookies are an ideal addition to your list of St. Patrick's Day or Christmas dessert recipes. Whip up a batch and see how fast they fly off of your platter.
#25: Eggnog Meltaways (pictured left) - You can never add too much eggnog to too many foods during the Holiday season. Eggnog Meltaways make for a great Christmas dessert recipe simply because they're easy to make and include one of the greatest Christmas flavors. With just seven simple ingredients, this recipe honestly couldn't be easier. Just prepare and bake the dough, and then roll the balls in powdered sugar after they come out of the oven. These cookies live up to their name because, as soon as you pop them into your mouth, they melt on your tongue.
#24: Peppermint Mocha Blossoms - This holiday season, you won't whip up a Christmas cookie recipe that is as simple as Peppermint Mocha Blossoms. Instant espresso power and cocoa powder perfectly flavor the cookie dough and give it that beautiful light brown color. Each cookie then gets a creamy candy cane-flavored Hershey's Kiss stuck right in the center of it. The chocolate coffee cookie and the peppermint candy's flavors create such a tantalizing taste that, after just one bite, your mouth will be watering for more.
#23: Retro Fruitcake Cookies - Retro Fruitcake Cookies taste just like the ones your grandmother (or great-grandmother) used to make. Candied fruit and warm spices make this Christmas cookie recipe fit for your cookie platter or dessert table. Unlike other recipes for cookies, these are great to make for when you're expecting a crowd. The original recipe made 120 cookies but this one cut that in half to make it more manageable. However, if you're having a party, you can always just double the ingredients.
#22: Best Ever Gingerbread Cookies (pictured at top) - When you're making your Christmas cookie recipes list (and checking it twice), make sure that Best Ever Gingerbread Cookies are on there. They're easy Christmas cookies to make and will make your house smell absolutely heavenly. After you've made and chilled the dough, pull out all of your favorite Christmas cookie cutters, including the one for the gingerbread man and go to town. You can also let your kids help you cut out and then decorate the cookies after they come out of the oven.
