Five Cookies to Add to Your Holiday Bake List

As soon as the Christmas music starts playing each year, I want to be baking. It's the perfect excuse to make something for a neighbor or your husband or that cute someone across the street.

I know everyone has their list of cookies and sweet treats each year -- snickerdoodles or peanut butter blossoms or chocolate crinkle cookies. But there's nothing that says you can't try a new recipe or switch up your routine a little bit.

Here are five of my favorite cookies, perfect for the holiday season.


Soft Ginger Butterscotch Chip Cookies


Mint Chocolate Crinkle Cookies


Coconut Cherry Oatmeal Cookies


Triple Chip Brown Butter Cookies


Frozen Whole Wheat Monster Cookie Dough Bites
