21 Christmas Cookies that aren't cut-outs

Not that there’s anything wrong with cut-outs.  I just usually don’t want to be bothered with all the work involved with them.  I’ll make them most years, just because my kids love them, and like to help with the decorating, but they’re never my first choice.  They just take too long.  I like to have lots of Christmas cookies as quickly as possible! If you agree, here’s 21 great choices for your holiday baking plans!

    I really don’t enjoy making cut-outs at all, but they are so well-loved. Lol! But I love this guide because there should be more cookies to Christmas than just cut-outs anyway. This is the ultimate cookie guide! Thanks for including one of my recipes! :)

      Yeah, the kids are the only reason I make cut-outs ever. I was going to try and skip them altogether this Christmas, but as soon as we start baking they ask if we’re making them – I guess there’s no leaving them out at Christmas-time! :)
