This is the time of year when Christmas fanatics everywhere gather around to devise new ways to infuse more holiday spirit into their lives. Getting ready for the holiday can be hectic, but these Christmas cookies will help make the holiday a little bit sweeter.

Christmas would not be Christmas without the holiday cookies. They bring joy to the taste buds. Beyond this, baking provides an opportunity for friends and families to come together.

“My favorite part of the [holidays] is having fun with my family and having a bonding moment,” said sophomore Skylar Cash.

The most fun and interactive cookies to make are classic sugar cookies.

Junior Jennifer Taylor asserted, “My favorite type of cookie is the sugar cookie with the nice frosting.”

Cookie cutters function to make the sugar cookies even more festive. If there are no cookie cutters near, one can take aluminum foil, fold it twice, form it into a shape that fits the Christmas cheer and staple the end. To make sure the cookies look decorative, use a powdered sugar icing with coloring of your choice.

The sugar cookie brings in a whole lot of fun to the baking process. It is the number one cookie to make during the holidays. The perfect bite: hard on the outside soft on the inside, creating the perfect cookie.

Along with sugar cookies, classic chocolate chip cookies are almost a necessity for Christmas eve. When making these cookies, be sure there is enough chocolate to hit Santa’s sweet tooth. Do not forget to leave out the milk as this classic duo is truly better together.

The chocolate chip cookie is truly a beloved classic, though it takes a close second to the more festive sugar cookie. The chocolate chip cookie is a blank slate for creative bakers to embellish however they want.

Yet the chocolate chip cookie is also the least likely to ever see the oven. Many Kadets enjoy the forbidden treat of raw chocolate chip cookie dough.

If you’re feeling adventurous, wander into the snappy side of the cookie world with some spice cookies.

To add some cookie decor around the house, a ginger bread house or village -if one wants to be extra- is always the way to go. However, this mixture requires a delicate balance. One must add just the right amount of flavor and use frosting to balance out the spice, ensuring that cookie-eating is a pleasant experience.

The Ginger bread is third runner up for the best cookie and can be for building and eating you can do whatever is desired with this cookie.

Pfeffernusse Cookies are a bit of a hassle to make. But, in the end the kicking taste on your tongue will be all the more worth the baking process. These German spice cookies enveloped in powdered sugar truly deliver the whole package.

Pfeffernusse cookies are the fourth runner up for best cookies to make during Christmas. There is not much one can do with it, but it hold the Christmas spirit.

So, during the holidays let’s fill each home with the comforting smell of baking cookies.
