Cookies are awesome at the best of time, but with the crazy season creeping up fast, simple Christmas cookies are almost mandatory!
It’s a time when we celebrate with those we love and most certainly over indulge in food, but you really don’t want to be spending hours in the kitchen creating masterpieces. Simplicity is the name of the game here.
Christmas is also a fantastic time to get in the kitchen with the kids, have some fun and generally spread some festive cheer. If the kids are in the kitchen with you, the recipes generally need to be relatively straight forward. You are with me on this one right?
If you love Christmas cookies and you love cooking with the kids, then you are going to love today’s post. Keep reading for some delightful cookie recipes that the kids are going to love making just as much as they love eating!
6 Fun & Simple Christmas Cookies Recipes
As soon as I saw these Christmas cornflake cookie wreaths by Tastes Better From Scratch I knew I had to include them here. Not only are they delicious, but how creative are they. Besides what kid doesn’t like a Christmas crackle….but this is just extra fancy! I love how simplistic they are, but they look stunning. They are definitely on my Christmas cookies list.
Good old Santa has to make an appearance, and I love these Santa Cookie Pops by Life With 4 Boys. I’m sure the kids would enjoy creating this little Santa face.
I tend to make these reindeer cookies every year and they are always a huge hit with the kids. Although I have to say that they were a huge hit with my hubby too! I think there will be a competition this year as to who can get to them first…..hubby or our 4 year old daughter!
Melted snowman cookies are also always a winner and I loved making these. Again, it’s a bit of a race to see who can get to them first.
Christmas wouldn’t quite be Christmas without the candy canes and these chocolate candy cane cookies by Back to Her Roots look simply divine. I could seriously dive into these, and the mix of the chocolate and the peppermint just sounds amazing.
Another variation on the candy cane that looks just as irresistible are these candy cane meringue cookies by Bless This Mess Please. Those goey chocolate chips in the meringue just want to make the mouth water.
I hope you have a magical time in the kitchen with the kids this year. I would love to hear what your favorite Christmas cookies recipe is that you love baking with the kids.
