12 Yummy Cookie Recipes

One of the many joys of the holiday season is the abundance of baked goods — pies, cakes, and, of course, the Christmas cookie.

A cookie exchange is a fun way to get lots of bang for your cookie buck. You’ll be able to enjoy all different types of cookies without having to make them all yourself. Just bake up lots of your favorite cookies, have your friends do the same, and have everyone over for a festive exchange.

Whether you’re doing a cookie exchange or just baking up a batch, you’ll find plenty of delicious recipes to enjoy this holiday season.
