Decorated Christmas Cookies – Perfect for baking and decorating with your favorite cookie cutters. Don’t forget the frosting!

7 Layer Bars – I know some people who wouldn’t bother baking if they didn’t bake these lovely little morsels of yumminess. Some people also refer to them as Dream Bars. Very easy and quick to make as long as you have all the ingredients.

Mexican Christmas Cookies – These are traditional Mexican cookies, especially for Christmas time. These are a must for my family at Christmas, someone always brings along a plate of Bizcochitos, as we call them.

Candy Cane Cookies – These are amazing candy cane shaped cookies that are not nearly as complicated to make as they seem. These are very impressive cookies to bring along to parties, cookie exchanges and simply to impress your family, friends and co-workers.

Christmas Ornament Cookies – These are surprisingly easy to make, and you can hang them on your tree, you just need to cut a hole to put some string through. If you really want to make them fancy, the easy way, you can use some little tubes of store-bought frosting to make these gorgeous.
