Do you have a favorite cookie recipe to make for Christmas?
I think we all do. For me it's Italian Ricotta Cookies. And here's another fun fact, I've only recently started making this cookie, yet it's been one of my favorite for years. And don't let the word ricotta fool you. These cookies do not taste like cheese at all. They're light, fluffy and oh so delicious. I really think I need to start making them more than just at Christmas time.

I know I definitely need to make these cookies at another time during the year so I can get better photos. Sometimes when I'm baking or even cooking around the holidays, things get so busy I take quick photos thinking they'll be fine for the blog and then I go look and they're not. This is one recipe where the photos just didn't come out properly and I only have a photo of the baked cookies to show you. But that's okay because these cookies look best baked with the icing dripping off of them, ready for you to enjoy...don't you agree?
I thought today I would share with you a few other cookie recipes that I like to make for the holidays. These are all pretty easy recipes to make and to give as gifts to family and friends. I love putting together cookie trays to give as gifts. These cookie recipes I'm sharing are recipes I have been baking for Christmas for years!
I've been enjoying Italian Pizzelle Cookies since I was a little girl. I recently started making Chocolate Italian Pizzelles and they are so delicious.
I love how easy shortbread cookies are to bake. I love using a round cookie cutter to make the shapes and then dip the cookies in melted chocolate and chopped walnuts. Around Valentine's Day I'll use heart shaped cookie cutters. This cookie dough freezes beautifully too, so it's easy to make the recipe ahead of time and then pull out of the freeze to bake closer to Christmas.
Slice and Bake Colorful Cookies are beautiful!. Read the directions carefully before you start and you should have no problems putting them together. You can change the color of the swirl too! Make them red for Valentine's Day!
