What's a great holiday celebration without Christmas cookies? For many families, baking cookies during the month of December has become a tradition. The scent of fresh-baked cookies is both a feeling of comfort and sign that Christmas is near. Try out these three recipes to wow your friends and family this holiday season.

Chocolate Sugar Christmas Cookies Cut-Outs

This twist on the typical sugar cookie recipe is simple and delectable (try this recipe idea for help). The dough ends up easy to manage (so children can help), and the cookies bake up crisp, yet remain slightly chewy. The biggest difference between this version and regular sugar cookies is the addition of cocoa powder.

PB and J Blondie

If you've never had a blondie, you're missing out. Essentially, a blondie is a dessert bar (call it a brownie if you'd like), but it can also fall into the cookie category, because of its ingredients. So for a different take on the traditional blondie, which is most often plain chocolate, try out a PB and J Blondie (here's a great recipe!). Oh, and to take it up a notch, add a scoop of ice cream to each piece your serve.

Rum Balls

Rum balls or as Germans call them Rumkugeln, are a truffle-esque confection that are about the size of a gold ball (but taste much sweeter, trust us), and just as you would discern, they do contain rum, though there are many recipes that use no rum or a rum alternative. For a great recipe, try out this version of rum balls found here. Once you try them, they will become a family tradition.
