Moms Check In

Holidays and baking go hand in hand. There are so many special memories to be made in the kitchen this time of year. Our family has many recipes from my grandmother that I love to recreate with Sam. We also love to find new favorites. Today, the Moms Check In crew will be sharing our favorite Christmas cookie recipes, which of course leads us to the question: what’s your favorite Christmas cookie recipe?

Favorite Christmas Cookie Recipes


Stephanie @ Spaceships and Laser Beams :: I love to bake, especially during the holiday season! My little helper, Sam joins me in the kitchen — just like I used to join my grandmother. He loves to help measure and mix… but of course his favorite part is tasting! We have a few classics we create each year that are family favorites, but we also love to experiment with new recipes. It’s definitely one of my favorite ways to create memories together. Here are two favorites:

Lindsay @ See Mom Click :: We love Christmas cookies! It’s definitely one of our favorite holiday traditions. My Mom always baked with me when I was a kid and I do the same with my kids. Our favorites are Chocolate Crinkles, Peanut Butter Kisses, and Sugar Cookie Cut-outs. But I love to try new ones every year too. The Red Velvet Cookie Cupcakes are so easy and festive, and the Nutella Stuffed Cookies are honestly the best things in the entire WORLD!!

Jenni @ Sweet Pennies from Heaven :: My favorite Christmas cookies are the peanut butter cookies with the Hershey Kisses on top! Doesn’t get much better than that in my book. My husband and kiddo though, love these Triple Chocolate Nutella Cookies. My all time personal favorite Christmas treat though (besides cookies), are these yummy-licious Peanut Butter Balls. They are absolutely heaven on earth! They’re also Eli’s favorite. We can polish off a batch of those in no time.

Amanda @ It’s a Fabulous Life :: Our motto is if it’s not broke, don’t fix it. Josh absolutely loves my secret ingredient chocolate chip cookies and he insists that we make them for every kind of occasion – including Christmas! I also love going to Cookie Exchanges where everyone brings all their fancy cookies – it’s great to taste new recipes! Here our favorite Christmas cookie recipe:

Stephanie is in love with a boy named Sam. He has taught her that it’s okay to jump first and look later, to wear a dirty shirt to the park and to decide that today is a good day to take a nap in your rubber boots. She hangs out here blogging at Spaceships and Laser Beams and at our printable party shop on Etsy.
