It’s that time of year for baking, family and holiday cheer. Sometimes when we run out of time to do family presents I will bake cookies for our family instead. My two go-to recipes for the holidays are Italian Wedding Cookies (or Mexican Wedding Cookies), and eggnog cookies. Below are my top 10 favorite cookie recipes the whole family will enjoy baking for Christmas!

1. Italian Wedding Cookies (or Mexican Wedding Cookies):

These are light and airy and very sweet. A delicious addition to any holiday gathering! I typically swap out hazelnuts for the almonds but both are greath. For the recipe click here:

2. Melt in Your Mouth Eggnog Cookies:

These cookies are possibly one of my holiday must-haves. If you are an eggnog fan, this cookie has a slight eggnog flavor that will have you singing carols with every bite! Since eggnog is not a year around thing here, my family and I look forward to these cookies this time of year as its the only chance I have to make it before you can no longer purchase eggnog here.
