What is the most popular Christmas cookie?
Hands down the answer is the peanut blossom. You will not find that recipe in this list, as it seems that everyone is actually making it already. I do think the fasted way is to start with the ol’ Tupperware peanut butter cookie recipe and then roll into balls, bake, and add a Hershey Kiss right out of the oven.
Tupperware Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe
Don’t know the ol’ Tupperware Peanut Butter Cookie recipe that uses only 3 ingredients? It’s easy! You will need a 1 cup measuring cup and three things; peanut butter (chunky or creamy), sugar, and one egg.
Measure 1 Cup of sugar into your mixing bowl. Then crack the egg into that empty measuring cup and roll it around before dumping onto the sugar in your bowl. It will help “grease” the cup so you can easily get that 1 Cup of peanut butter in and out again.
Mix those three things together until the dough is smooth. drop by spoonful or roll into balls, and bake at 350 for six to 8 minutes.
Classic Sugar Cookies

And I totally love this video from the Little Cookie Company that shows how to decorate a round sugar cookie in multiple adorable designs. I think I need to make some of those snowflakes and snowmen right NOW but know the elf cookie will be brought by our buddy elf Hailee next December.
When should you make Christmas cookies?
The answer to this depends on a few things. First of all, do you have plenty of freezer space? If the answer is YES then you can start mid September and pop things in the freezer as you go. You can freeze cookies for up to about three months before you start to loose flavor and quality. According to the Food Channel:
To freeze cookies, make sure your cookies have thoroughly cooled to room temperature before packaging them. Then, layer them in a freezer safe container, putting sheets of waxed paper or parchment paper in between the layers to prevent sticking. You don’t want to have to pull your pretty cookies apart and leave a mark on the bottom cookies! You’ll want to fill the container, so choose containers appropriate in size for the cookies you’ll bake (but don’t be tempted to mix kinds of cookies).The Food Channel
If you do not have abundant freezer space, you will want to wait until mid November to get started. Regardless, this is a great tip from the Food Channel:
Invest in a good, airtight container—this is not the time to use tins or anything that does not have a seal. We’ve even known people who wrap their airtight containers in plastic wrap before putting in the freezer, and there’s nothing wrong with that precaution if you are using an older container.The Food Channel
