  1. I love sugar cookies.

  2. This may be a cop-out, since they’re not *really* holiday cookies, but snickerdoodles have always been my favorite this time of year. I never make them for myself and they always show up at holiday parties, so I always associate them with the holidays. :)

  3. I love the danish butter cookies that come out each Christmas!

  4. Snickersnaps/Gingerdoodles! (I prefer “snickersnaps” because it has a bit more a pop and it’s much more fun to say.) It is literally a combination of snickerdoodle dough and gingersnap dough all mixed together and rolled in cinnamon-sugary deliciousness. Alone, each of these cookies seems to lack that something special for me, but together = AMAZEMENT! And bonus: Everyone loves them, from gap-toothed toodlers, to negative-nancy coworkers, and even tradition-rooted seniors. You cannot go wrong with this cookie hybrid!

  5. My absolute favorite is spritz cookies with almond flavoring, but I haven’t been able to find a good cookie press that works. Maybe this is the one that will work for me.

  6. My favorite Holiday cookies are Cranberry Orange Cookies and Chai Spiced Snickerdoodles!

  7. I’m Italian and growing up my mom made tons of different kinds of Italian cookies each holiday season. My favorite by far, is the Venetian (sometimes called “rainbow cookie”) it’s delicious….almond paste….jam….dark chocolate. yum. they are kind of hard to make but totally worth it. Thanks for the giveaway!

  8. I love Paula Trombi’s apricot bars; my Mom and I have made them every Christmas since before I can remember!

  9. I absolutely adore those peanut butter cookies with Hershey kisses stuck in the middle. Mmmm….

  10. I am fond of Scandinavian krumkake, in a nod to my heritage.

  11. Peanut butter cookies are my traditional favorite, but I just saw a recipe on Pinterest for white chocolate chip and crushed peppermint cookies and they sound Amazing!

  12. It’s either my grandmother’s sugar cookies or ginger cookies. Anything with ginger is fantastic.

  13. It wasn’t Christmas without my Nonno’s biscotti!

  14. I absolutely love gingerbread cookies during the holiday season!

  15. Chocolate crinkles

  16. My favorite holiday cookie is Andes chocolate cookies….mmmmmm….. & then next would be sugar cookies!

  17. They may not be a holiday cookie, but if my gift tins don’t include Toll House chocolate chips, I hear about it. That’s fine with me since they’re my favorite too.

  18. I love Christmas cookies so much that it’s difficult to pick my favorite …. but I’ll probably go with a sugar cookie with cream cheese in the dough, iced of course!

  19. Sugar cookies!!!!!!!!! …. and now I’m craving some so I might have to go make a batch!!!

  20. My grandma make almond thumbprint cookies every year for the holidays and they are my absolute favorite. We live many states apart now and she still mails some to me. They show up in a million pieces but I eat every piece and think about my grandma.

  21. I have a favorite recipe for a pink and white peppermint swirl cookie. :)

  22. It would have to be a gingerbread man, or maybe a snowball. I love them all!

  23. Peanut Butter with a Hershey’s Kiss on top :) Yum!

  24. My favorite holiday cookie is the Skillet Cookie my Aunt Jean makes. I’ll be digging up the recipe, soon, to post on my blog.

  25. I am in love with chocolate mint cookies! My grandmother makes them for Christmas!

  26. Spritz cookies are my favorite! We make them with almond, and I could (and do) eat them all day!

  27. We have a Tiramisu cookie recipe. They are a pain to make, but worth it.

  28. How can I choose just one! My top three are spritz, cut outs and molasses.

  29. I love spritz cookies, and also Mexican Wedding Cookies (Snowballs)!

  30. I love doctoring a basic sugar cookie recipe with a lot of lemon! that’s the best!

  31. My dad used to have one of those cookie guns! It was his specialty during the holidays.

    I myself am a bit biased towards good ol’ roll-out sugar cookies. So many good memories attached to cutting them out and then decorating them with my brother. :)

  32. doesn’t matter the season, chocolate chip will always be my favorite!

  33. I want to try all kinds of new recipes this season, but I think peanut butter with peanut butter chips will always be my favorite!

  34. My nanny makes the BEST ambrosia cookies and they totally hit the spot during the holidays!

  35. I ADORE Gingerbread Frosted Cookies, especially the ones from Trader Joe’s. They are very, very, dangerous to have around the house! And for the non-holidays, you can beat the Pecan / Hazelnut Sandies!!

  36. My favorite cookie is gingerbread men. My co-worker makes the best!!!

  37. I love my Grandmother’s lemon cookies! Spritz are a favorite too!

  38. I love gingerbread cookies. And, snickerdoodles. And, sugar cookies. Oh, and, peanut butter blossoms. Oh, and…. yeah, I’ll just take the whole plate.

  39. My mom was (still is) a terrific baker. But she doesn’t do it as much anymore. When I was little we’d bake 10 or 12 dozen of about 10 different cookies. My favorite though is the cream wafers from Betty Crocker.

  40. Molasses spice cookies. These, but I use butter instead of margarine and roll them in turbinado sugar instead of white:

  41. I’m a huge fan of spritz cookies – I only get them at Christmas!

  42. I’m a fan of most cookies but I do look forward to homemade M&M cookies!

  43. my favorite cookies are the little cheap tin cookies you can get at christmas every year! with milk! yum. i’d like to have this press to make my own! yum!!! :)

  44. My Mom’s Fruit Cake Cookies. Much better than the cake version, and my cousins fight over them making the cookies that much more special :)

  45. Almond Crescents!

  46. Cut out frosted sugar cookies. So much fun to make and decorate.

  47. Any almond cookie!
