The Best Christmas Cookies

(This post may contain affiliate links. For more information, see my disclosure policy.)

There is just something about the holidays that evokes in me the urge to bake. The best Christmas cookies in my opinion are both those that are traditional and give a nostalgic taste of the season and those that are new and delicious. This collection includes both types. Let the holiday baking begin!
