For instance, rather than gingerbread, you may find the idea of a coconut and raspberry preserve cookie more appealing. There are also recipes that place peppermint at their core and many other varied tastes. Of course, you can stay with the more traditional shortbread style cookies if you so wish.
While some purist may claim that gingerbread is the only real form of Christmas cookie, as you explore the recipes here, you will quickly realise that they are wrong. Ultimately, it is entirely up to you what cookies you make for Christmas and you can easily make any cookie look festive with a bit of creative decorating.
If you’re a big fan of cookies and baking, then you could even decide to make all ten of the recipes. After all, what could be a better way to enjoy the holidays than with a huge amount of cookies just waiting to be nibbled?
