These are Markus’s favorite Christmas Cookies because:

Vanilliekipferl cookies are without question my favorite baked good of the holiday season and remind me of my mothers holiday baking. A traditional German Christmas cookie, Vanillakipferl are very similar to shortbread cookies and are just as easy to make. They make a great cookie to bake with kids and teach the basics of making shortbread cookies at home! Light and just the right amount of nuttiness, these Christmas cookies make a wonderful gift or addition to your own cookie collection. There is a reason Vanillakipferl are as popular as they are at Christmas markets and fairs across Germany. Try them yourself this year with this easy to follow recipe.

These cookies are a family favorite. I have simplified the recipe by using a cake mix for those who don’t bake often. These red velvet cookies and also cake, are popular in the south where I am from.

These are Erica’s favorite Christmas Cookies because:

Having grown up helping my Polish Nana bake our family’s Anise Pierniki recipe (only known in her recipe book as “Christmas Cookies”) every year, these crispy, licorice-scented iced cookies quickly became my favorite. She’s been gone for over 10 years, but not a Christmas has passed without them.

These are Shashi’s favorite Christmas Cookies because:

These are some of my favs as they remind me of traditional Sri Lankan Christmas Cake that my parents used to passionately work on for weeks as it takes time for fruits, nuts, and booze to develop their flavors before they are introduced to semolina and butter and the other ingredients that make up the cake.

These are Tina’s favorite Christmas Cookies because:

A deep-fried cardamom flavored cookie that was probably brought to India by the Portuguese. Now there’s no Christmas without a batch of these. I remember spending hours rolling them the week before Christmas every year, with my entire family, while my mom stayed in the kitchen deep-frying batch after batch to give away to friends and family.

These are Kelly Anne’s  favorite Christmas Cookies because:

It’s one of my favorite Christmas cookies because the sugar cookie is a classic I’ve eaten at Christmas time since childhood. Today it’s one of my favorites because I can pull my two little girls into the kitchen with me to decorate and spend some festive quality time together during the holidays💓 I’ve spruced up the classic sugar cookie recipe just slightly by adding almond extract and a touch more salt than those I grew up eating. It brings out the flavor and isn’t quite so overwhelmingly sweet, especially when you take into consideration they will be iced…with more sugar
