Ten on the 10th: Christmas Cookies

I love a good cookie recipe!

Every year, I bake lots and lots of Christmas Cookies to bring to parties and give as gifts. In honor of Shimelle's 10 on the 10th, here are 10 Christmas Cookies I am baking this year.

  1. Cranberry Orange Shortbread
  2. Mocha Slice
  3. Cream Cheese Walnut (my husband's favorite!)
  4. Sugar Cookie Cutouts 
  5. Black Forest Cookies
  6. Cherry Vanilla Snowdrops
  7. Chocolate-Espresso Snowcaps
  8. Lime Meltaways
  9. Buttered Rum Meltaways
  10. Crackled Crescents

Last year's Buttered Rum Meltaways...yum!
As you can see, I'm partial to Martha Stewart! With the exception of the lime meltaways, these are all my tried and true recipes I make year after year.  I'll let you know how the lime ones turn out!

My assembly line!
Right now the dough for five of these is in the freezer, waiting to be baked next weekend.  I'll probably make a few more batches of dough this weekend too.


  1. Oh my goodness they all sound wonderful! I would love to live near you this Christmas! Brilliant 10 on 10. Thanks x

  6. Cream cheese walnut and lime meltaways?!!! Yes, please lol they sound delish :) How can a cookie list for a December TEN be anything but perfect. I'm doing a linked up cookie exchange on the 16th if you are interested.
