1. Forgotten Cookies - It seems like these have been a favorite of grandmas for a long time and mine was no exception. I feel like I'm carrying on a family tradition every time I make them.
2. Fudge - I've tried a lot of fudge recipes but I've found none better than the recipe on the back of the marshmallow fluff jar (another recipe my nana turned me on to!)
3. Peanut Butter Reindeer - I just take the best peanut butter cookies out of the over and add some antlers, eyes and a nose before they cool like Stefanie did here.
4. Haystacks - Another traditional recipe that my nana used to make every year for her bridge group. My mom has all the recipes cards back home in Florida but this recipe is as close as it gets to the original!
5. Cut-out cookies/sugar cookie swirl - My favorite sugar cookie recipe is found here. I've tried quite a few and this recipe has by far the best taste and are the best for cut-outs! Depending on how tired I am after all this baking, I will either do the traditional cut-outs and ice them (with the best cookie icing found here) or add some coloring to the dough and roll them up to make swirl cookies like Rachel did here.
What Christmas cookies do you find yourself making year after year?
