Sprinkled with sugar crystals, glazed with colorful icing, cut into festive shapes – they’re just as much fun to admire as they are to eat. If you’re looking for a few new Christmas cookie recipes to try this year, we’ve got you covered. Whip up a batch or two of these delicious recipes and delight cookie lovers of all ages.
Eggnog is one of those flavors that embody the season.
