We’re going to take a quick break from gift guides and start the wheels turning on cookie baking. I’m rounding up a list of favorites here with this Christmas Cookie Round Up 2017.

Christmas Cookie Round Up 2017. Seventeen holiday favorites from drop cookies to molded cookies to bar cookies. There's something for everyone on this list!

As usual, I need an extra week after Thanksgiving before I even think about Christmas. I think there should be five or six weeks between the two holidays. That would give me more time to bake, more time to decorate, more time to celebrate and more time to relax. So, can we just make that extra time a thing? :)

I love each and every one of these cookies. Most of them are long running annual traditions, some are newer. Today, I’ve got everything from drop cookies, cut outs and bars to molded cookies. I know you’ll find at least one new favorite on the list!
