I think we can agree that all the amazing Christmas treats are a major reason that this is truly the “Most Wonderful Time of the Year.”  I know you agree with me, so don’t pretend that you don’t.
As a food blogger, the Christmas season brings endless requests to share my “favorite Christmas cookie recipe.”  I have a hard time when someone asks me for my favorite recipe of any type of food, let alone my favorite Christmas cookie.  Heck, I even had a hard time narrowing down my holiday baking treats to just these top 10!  Trust me when I tell you that each of these is a treasured member of my Christmas family and they will not disappoint.  Merry Christmas baking to all and to all, a good night!
My 10 Must Have Christmas Cookie recipes
1.  Salted Toffee Graham Squares – yes, they are as amazing as they look and only take a few minutes to make!
