7 Cookies to Bake (and Devour) This Holiday Season

We think there's nothing quite as festive as baking a batch of holiday cookies! We like to make a day out of it, get the kids in the kitchen, and try a few different recipes. Plus any extra can be packaged up and given out as gifts. Keep it classic with Linzer Cookies or change things up with Dirty Chai Shortbread Cookie Sandwiches!

1. Peppermint Candy Chocolate Sable Cookies

When we think holidays one of the classic flavor combos that comes to mind is chocolate and peppermint, and these sable cookies are just that. Sprinkle some crushed peppermint candies on top and eat away!
