Top 10 Best Christmas Cookies

Top 10 Best Christmas Cookies

It's the holiday season, y'all!


Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, all sights are set on the jolly man in the red suit, who happens to love Christmas cookies! Christmas cookie-making has always been a cherished and happy tradition in my family, and I plan on continuing this tradition on with my own children someday. Here are ten of my absolute favorite Christmas cookies!

1. Sweet and Salty Chocolate Reindeer

These ones are equally as cute as they are delicious! What I love about them is that you can put your own unique spin on them. For instance, instead of using brown M&M's for the eyes, you can use chocolate chips!

2. Creme de Menthe Cookies

Every year around the holidays, my mother bakes this chocolate creme de menthe cake. These are certainly the next best thing, and the smell of them baking always makes me think of her.

3. Hot Chocolate Cookies

There's nothing like a warm cup of hot cocoa on a cold winter day, and you'll be thinking the same of these cookies! Adding marshmallow bits in the cookie dough really completes the recipe.

4. Peanut Butter Buckeyes

Although no part of these babies really puts them in the category of "Christmas cookies" and they also happen to share a name with a certain college football team I am not particularly fond of, peanut butter buckeyes have a dear place in my heart around the holidays. They're my father's absolute favorite!

5. Decorated Christmas Cutout Cookies

These are probably the most mainstream Christmas cookies, but also arguably the sweetest and most delicious. There are endless Christmas cutout designs out there, from candy canes to snowflakes to Christmas trees.

6. Rudolph Noses

This recipe is about as simple as they come. Be careful though - they're also as yummy and small as they come, and are all too easy to accidentally consume tens of. Consider yourself warned.

7. Eggnog Cookies

I am by no means the biggest eggnog girl, but these are wonderful. The beloved holiday beverage (without the brandy) is included in both the cookie and the icing on top. Add some red and green sprinkles to complete the treat!

8. Chocolate Candy Cane Kiss Cookies

Hershey had to have made Candy Cane Kisses for the purpose of being embedded in cookies. You can switch up the base of the cookie, but I like to stick with a chocolate base to give the cookie that mouth-watering mint chocolate flavor.

9. Grinch Cookies

I feel that these are pretty self-explanatory. Rumor has it these cookies are in fact what made the Grinch's heart grow three times its previous size.

10. Gingerbread Cookies

Whenever I think of these cookies, I think about the gingerbread man character from Shrek. I hope you think of something other than Shrek while enjoying these holiday delicacies.

These are all fairly simple to make, so give them a try! All the recipes can be easily found online. Happy Holidays to you and yours, from me and mine!

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
