Leg Lamp Cookies
Shut the front door. I am so in love with this cookie from A Christmas Story. You’ll have to pull out the crafter in you to get the design and icing just right but they would be a show stopper and a yummy Christmas cookie for anyone to receive.

The sandwich cookie is always a winner. Add some crushed candy cane around the edges and you have taken it to a whole new level. Epicurious has the recipe for this yummy Christmas cookie. Since it takes 2 cookies to make 1 sandwich I often have to double the recipe to make sure there are PLENTY of cookies to go around.
Mexican wedding cookies and Russian tea cakes are the same idea as these snowball cookies. Yet, calling them snowball cookies is so much more festive and fun! Try making these yummy dainty butter cookies for your next Christmas get together.

Now why didn’t I think of that? Putting eggnog in your cookies AND in the icing. Love From The Oven has the recipe for what are sure to become a Christmas favorite.
