Irish Cream Butter Cookies

These deliciously flavored Irish cream butter cookies taste a lot like shortbread cookies, but with an unexpected twist.

They’re ever so slightly crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside, and then topped with a chocolate-covered espresso bean. What could be better?!!

Christmas Cookies Recipe Roundup

Even if you have traditional cookie recipes you make every year it’s always fun to add some new ones to the repertoire.

Especially if you’re giving them as gifts, hosting a cookie exchange, or dropping a big box of homemade cookies off at a local shelter. Christmas cookies are like a warm hug filled with love that brings smiles to people’s faces.

Best Ever Santa’s Favorite Sugar Cookies

When we got married, and Mark and I started our own family, there were certain traditions I wanted to continue from when I was a little girl and hopefully pass along to our two boys. These cookies were one of the things I incorporated throughout the years to fondly rekindle my joyous Christmas memories.

I am happy to report that our boys (now grown) feel exactly the same way about these cookies as I did, and still do to this day.  Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without Santa’s Favorite Sugar Cookies.

Buttery Sweet Pistachio Cranberry Snowball Cookies

I adapted this recipe from one I shared back in 2010 called pecan snowball cookies. I was going to do a recipe re-do where I updated the photos in the original post. However, before I knew it, my brain was adding the festive red and green elements of pistachios and dried cranberries, and omitting the pecans altogether. The result is utterly delicious. I do hope you’ll make these Buttery Sweet Pistachio Cranberry Snowball Cookies. I know you’ll love them just as much as we do!
