Some day I think there may be a teeny chance that I’ll actually make time to do a proper cookie plate for our neighbors and friends. We used to help my mom every Christmas season to pack up the perfect cookie plates for our neighbors, friends, and my parents’ co-workers, and to this day it’s still one of the sweetest (pun intended) memories of the season. We would make magic bars, moon shaped shortbread cookies, fudge, brittle, smoked pecans, and more – all in batches so large that we had to make space for it to all cool in the garage.
There are so many amazing cookie recipes out there, but in lieu of digging around Pinterest and my blog reader I figured I’d go through the ol’ archives and share some of my favorite past cookie recipes to spark some inspiration for you guys. Whether you’re doing a last minute teacher gift, prepping for a holiday party, or getting ready for the Christmas feast, these are some fun cookies that have been tried and true around our house!
