Christmas Cookies - our family's favorite christmas cookie to make to give to friends, neighbors and Santa!! YUM!

One of our all-time favorite things to do this time of year is bake cookies!! It’s something we do all year long but something we especially look forward to during the holidays. Making treats and assembling plates for neighbors, friends and church members is a common occurrence and a tradition we look forward to each year. That is why I’m sharing this Christmas Cookies recipe today, since it’s our favorite holiday treat to make and give this time of year.

These Christmas Cookies are filled with M&Ms and sprinkles and are so easy to make. I enjoy making them especially since it’s an easy recipe to involve the little ones. They love to add the ingredients and especially to top off each cookie with M&Ms. Each batch makes 3 dozen cookies which is great for our cookie plates since one batch with cover all the neighbors. In fact, we just made these yesterday for our neighbors! 😀
