Making Christmas Cookies has been a tradition in my family for as long as I can remember. I’m still using the same cookie cutters my grandma used to use, just not the recipes. You can create these beautiful cookies and candies in just a fraction of the time and no cookie-cutters or special tools are needed.

Easy Christmas Cookies Recipes for the Ultimate Cookie Platter

Pictured above from left to right

Chocolate Dipped Pretzels

This cookie really doesn’t even require a recipe, just two ingredients- Pretzels and Chocolate Chips. You can add a Christmas flare with sprinkles.

Lemon Drop Cookies

I live to sprinkle some lemon zest over the icing if I’m going to serve these right away.

Italian Wedding Balls (or Mexican Wedding Balls)

This recipe is my personal favorite, it’s not Christmas without Wedding Balls and a cup of cold milk.

Peanut Butter Fudge

Only 4 ingredients to this super simple recipe!

Pecan Caramel Turtles

The hardest thing about this entire recipe is unwrapping the Kraft caramels. You can melt some white chocolate chips like I did and drizzle over the top for a gourmet look.

Chocolate Fudge

You can leave out the nuts in this recipe if you don’t like nuts, we use pecans instead of walnuts.

Chocolate Crinkles

This recipe makes a ton of cookies so it is perfect for gift-giving, cookie swaps or parties.


The Buckeyes are a family favorite and never last long so I make a double batch and hide a secret stash in the freezer.

Peanut Butter Kisses

You can make this recipe really quick and easy if you buy the peanut butter cookie mix at the store and add the kisses as soon as you take them out the oven. Less than 15 mins from start to finish.

Organic, Raw and Gluten-free Coconut Balls

This recipe was so easy to make my four year old did most of the work. You can add 1/2 tsp of mint or almond extract to change the flavor.

Something for everyone on this beautiful Christmas Cookie Platter. Do you have a favorite Christmas Cookie Recipe to share?
