Christmas Cookie RecipesOur local newspaper runs really good recipes. This issue has cookies that sound so good. The readership is small, and these recipes should be shared.


  • 2 egg whites (cold)
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Beat egg whites and salt until stiff, then beat in sugar and vanilla. Continue to beat until very stiff peaks form. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet. Place in preheated oven, then immediately turn the oven off. Do not open the oven until the following day.

These are basically meringue cookies with chocolate chips, and will be crispy and chewy.

From the cookie left out for Santa to the gifts of cookies we give our neighbors, the cookie is one of the symbols of Christmas. Now a lot of people have gotten away from baking some of the great Christmas Classics so I present them here to you for your baking pleasure.

One of my family's favorite cookies is also the easiest for me to make this time of year. All you do is take prepared sugar cookie dough, roll into 1 1/2 inch balls and then roll into red and green colored sugar.

Could someone please help me find this recipe. My mother used to make it for me back in the late 70s early 80s.

It is not the common spitzbuben one, this one had 1 lb of butter in the crust and then it was topped with jam and covered with meringue and chopped pecans?

Please if anyone has a recipe similar to this let me know, thank you very, very much in advance.

this one sounds close, but has no jam or pecans. maybe you could sort of combine with the spitzbuben recipe?

Hi, I don't have the recipe handy, but you need to search for "mandel halb mond" (excuse my german)....they are my all time favourite (and were my Oma's alltime favourite)...I know you had to bake the almond shortbread base (which was rolled/patted into a cookie sheet) first, remove from oven add jam, and then spread the egg white /lemon on top and quickly bake again. The n it all had to be cut out into cresents (we just used a juice glass)....YUM! I do have spitzbuben recipe if you need!

I am looking for a recipe which was on the back of a Christmas bag of M&M's several years ago. It used the green and red M&Ms and also candied cherries. I seem to remember using almond extract too. Anyone have this recipe?

I am looking for some exciting cookie recipes that I can make for Christmas. Does anyone have any recipes or know of some good resources to find some online? I plan on going to the library, but I thought it might be interesting to see what others are baking this year.

I have been baking Christmas cookies for my family for years. I have tried various recipes some great and some not so great. This year I was baking cupcakes for my daughter using regular cake mix when I noticed a recipe for cookies on the box. It took me 3 minutes to make the cookie mix and it tastes great.


When I go to the grocery store and the cake mixes are on sale I stock up and buy 6 to 10 boxes. Usually when you prepare commercial cake mix you use water, oil and eggs. To make the cookies you just add oil and eggs but omit the water. You should be able to find the recipe on the box. Enjoy.

No Bake Cookies
(in dh's house, they are known as Candy Cookies)

Bring the following to a rapid boil and continue boiling for 2 minutes:
1/2 cup milk
2 cups sugar
2 T cocoa
1/2 cup butter (I use margarine)

Remove from heat and stir in the following:
3 cups oatmeal
1/2 cup peanut butter (I use crunchy)


1 t vanilla
dash salt (I rarely add it)

Drop quickly onto cookie sheet or waxed paper.

I usually double or triple the recipe as they are super yummy and go fast in my house. Get out the milk!

I have also made the cookies from cake mixes. I love them. The chocolate is my favorite. Nothing easier than these cookies. And you can dress them up for the holidays with sprinkles and such. Val

You don't have to give up holiday cookies just because you are following a gluten free diet. This page contains gluten-free Christmas cookie recipes.
