Easy Christmas Cookie Recipes

Cinnamon Stars
Topped with frosting or dusted with powdered sugar, these Cinnamon Stars are the perfect way to make any table shine this holiday season. Our easy Christmas cookie recipe uses ingredients you can find at any grocery store, and makes just over six dozen cookies, so it’s ideal for when you need lots of treats for a bake sale, weekend sports match, or holiday potluck. The best part? This recipe features our no softening needed Baking Sticks to cut down on prep time. You can make time in the kitchen even easier by preparing your cookie batter the night before—that way there’s need to stress over the dough firmness required by our recipe and you can bake whenever it’s convenient for you the next day!
