There are many reasons to love the holidays, but Christmas cookies are definitely on the top of that list. With that in mind, we gathered together all the important Christmas cookie recipes you need to get through this season -- and some great twists on classics too (like mocha coconut crinkles!). Because it isn't really the holidays unless you bake some cookies, whether you're a baker or not.
We have easy recipes for the amateur baker, like holiday shortbread -- seriously, anyone can make these -- and then we have Christmas cookie recipes that require a little more work like linzers to get you in the holiday spirit. Give a few (dozen) of them a try -- at least.
