As a woman who adores Scotland (http://www.MyScottishHeart.com), I’ve nibbled on Walker’s Shortbread for years, and still reach for it when I don’t have time to bake. But when I find an hour to spare, nothing beats Scottish shortbread fresh from the oven. Here’s my favorite, foolproof recipe:

shortbread2Scottish Shortbread

Ingredients:

1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar

1/2 cup cornstarch

1 cup all-purpose flour

3/4 cup butter, softened

1 tablespoon granulated sugar

Instructions:

Sift confectioners’ sugar, cornstarch, and flour together in a bowl. Add softened butter, using your hands to knead the mixture into dough. Wrap dough in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for no longer than 30 minutes.

Press cold dough into the bottom of a greased 8 x 8 pan (round or square; glass is best). Bake at 325 for 30 minutes or until the edges are very lightly browned.

Sprinkle granulated sugar across the top. Cool completely, then cut into 8 servings.

This shortbread is absolutely delicious with a steaming cup of tea on a snowy afternoon.

What is your favorite Christmas cookie?

  2. Laura,

    If you want to search for Him, you have already been found by HIm. “Seek and you shall find”. “Knock and the door will be opened unto you”.

    Blessings to you this Christmas and always.

  7. My favorite Christmas cookies are the ones I get to make with my grandma. Watching her roll out the dough is a memory I’ve had since childhood. I’m blessed to be able to pass this tradition on to my kids. Their favorite part is the decorating!

  8. My favorite cookies are snowballs, or Russian Teacakes. When I was little, my grandmother made them and I thought she called them “brush your teeth” cakes! Anyway, they’re the best! Thank you for the chance to snag your books!

  9. Favorite cookie – soft sugar cookies made from a recipe from my grandmother

  16. My favorite one will be shortbread cookies!!!

  17. Cut out sugar cookies with homemade icing& sprinkles. Looking forward to your devotion the next 5 days! Thank you.

  18. My favorite Christmas cookies are the cutout ones my sister and I bake from my Grandma’s recipe. She has been gone for over twenty years,, but every Christmas season we have her with us. It’s funny though because try as we might, following her recipe to the letter, they never are quite as good as they were when she made them <3

  19. Christina Evans says:

    My favorite cookie used to be peanut butter with hershey kisses, but alas I had a sweet girl who has a peanut allergy, so now we love sugar cookies decorated with a carefree abandon of a mess :)

  21. Nancy marsh says:

      I used to have a great almond spritz recipe as a young lady, but lost it in many moves. Could you, please, point me to a good recipe?

  22. My favorite Christmas cookie to EAT is chocolate chip. I’m boring like that. But my favorite cookie to MAKE is sandtarts. When I was a kid, Mom, my sister, and I would make them all together. It would take a good part of the day, and I was in charge of flipping the records, watching the cookies through the oven door, and eventually decorating them with an egg wash and sprinkles. It was so much fun!

  23. My favorite All-Time (especially at Christmas) is the shortbread type that has dozens of names… Crescent Cookies, Wedding cookies, Italian Cookies, with butter, Conf.sugar and flour! Usually we shape in crescents.

  24. I pray to be aware of Christ’s presence each and every day and be open to how I can shine His Light to others. Favorite cookies are decorated sugar cookies and a new recipe, cranberry and pistachio biscotti.

  25. Melissa Barnes says:

    I so love Christmas! This book on the women of Christmas, will I am sure bring so much insight! As Christians we must put Christ back in Christmas and remove the monetary from Christmas! Peace, Grace, and Serenity!

  35. Gaylene Carpenter says:

    My favorite Christmas cookies are kisses cookies- either drop a Hershey’s kiss in the center of peanut butter or sugar cookies (does not matter which). I love it when the chocolate melts just a little.

  36. Jennifer Hallenbeck says:

    My favorite Christmas Cookie is Russian Tea Cakes. They remind me of Christmases growing up, when i would help my mom make them for our Christmas celebrations with family.

  37. My favorite Christmas cookie is the peanutbutter blossoms with the kisses in the middle. All around favorite would be chocolate chip cookies though. :)

  39. Kristina Stout says:

    Our family has a few favorite cookies: the famous peanut butter blossoms, decorated sugar cookies and wedding cookies. Next year our favorites will look a little different because this year I have to make allergy free cookies. Two of our children were diagnosed with severe food allergies. Thank you for a chance to win these amazing books. Merry Christmas!

  41. My desire is to truly worship the King of Kings while being open to
    Being His hands and feet.

  42. I love the Moravian ginger cookies. My mom makes them every year but I have never quite mastered them. They are SO THIN…but delicious.

  43. Deborah Heath says:

    My favorite Christmas cookie were Snowball cookies that I started making when I was young out of a children’s cookbook. It’s very simple (& fattening!) but oh, so good! The only ingredients are butter, sugar, cocoa, vanilla & confectioner’s sugar.

  44. Butterscotch haystack cookies

  45. Melody Byrum says:

    My favorite Christmas cookie? my daughter and I make sugar cookie cut outs every year. It’s a family recipe that is about 55 years old or so. And then my daughter decorates them and we give them to neighbors. I love sugar cookies, but I hate sugar cookies with icing of any kind. So we leave a few plain so that I can eat them. The rest get decorated and we give them away along with Banana nut bread and pumpkin bread. My sister in law makes the most delicious cream cheese cookies though that are not friendly to the waist line at all, so I eat just a couple each year.

  46. Karen Hall says:

    My favorite cookie is decorated sugar cookies. I remember making them with my mom and grandma, and now have the same tradition with my granddaughters. :)

  55. LOVE and old sugar cookie recipe that I have. Soft and butter.

  56. My favorite is a spice cookie that my grandma used to make. She would roll the dough into a perfect ball, roll the ball in sugar and bake a masterpiece that would fit PERFECTLY into a pringles can to be shipped across the miles to our house. And just seeing that box arrive meant Christmas to me.

    And now I want one!!!

  73. Heather Lovelace says:

    My favorite Christmas cookie would have to be chocolate chip with walnuts. Because that’s my dad’s favorite and what we always made for Santa when we were kids. It always makes me think of Christmas Eve.

  74. Jackie Slagle says:

    Liz so grateful for all you do in helping us to understand his word in a way we all can apply to our everyday life!

  75. My favorite Christmas cookie is a sugar cookie recipe that was printed in a 1953 woman’s magazine. Every year my mom would pull out that increasingly dog-eared, spilled upon magazine and we’d make triple or quadruple batches of sugar cookies, so there’d be plenty for all of us to paint with confectioners sugar icing!

  76. My favorite Christmas cookie is a monster cookie made with red and green M&M’s, but I love Scottish shortbread ANY time of the year!

  77. Diona Rodgers says:

    Russian tea cakes (A.K.A. wedding snowballs or mexican wedsing cake cookies). I only eat these during the Christmas season.

  78. My favorite Christmas cookie would be a sugar cookie – cut into the shape of a Christmas tree with an abundance of frosting, and green sugar sprinkled on top, of course! But I also like…… buckeyes, peanut butter cookies w/ the kisses on top, caramel walnut bars, haystack cookies, Mexican wedding cookies, well – you get the picture!!!
    Merry Christmas to all!

    My favorite cookie type is peanut butter cookied with chocolate kisses…yym!

  85. We love cookie of all kinds in my house but My personal Christmas favorite is molasses spice.

My favorite cookie is old fashioned sugar cookie cut outs…..with a cup of tea! I’m smiling just thinking of it. God bless your season with the fruits of His spirit.

  90. Italian spumoni cookies..three layer bar cookie that my mom always makes.

  91. My favorite cookie to make is tea cakes. My grandmother always made hearts but I have around 50 cookie cutters I use for different occasions. Merry Christmas!

  92. Cheryl Mansell says:

    An heirloom recipe . . . Cut-Out Sugar Cookies bar none! It is so much more than a cookie . . . it is generations of memories and love that consume your thoughts with every motion of creating them, every bite while slowly, thoughtfully, consuming them. And then, to be able to gift them to others who “always” come back and ask for the recipe . . . makes my heart smile!

  93. Tiffany Blair says:

    My favorite is always peanut butter buckeyes! Which is technically a cookie, ask any Midwesterner :)

    My favorite Christmas cookie is the Thumbprint Cookie–maple-flavored goodies, rolled in finely chopped pecans, with the thumb indentations filled with Christmasy jewel tones of thick confectioner’s glaze!

  95. We love to make frosted sugar cookies and decorate with sprinkles and other fun decorations. Throughout the year we look for special cookie cutters to use, like a train engine for Jadon and a teacup for Keely….a tradition for Grammy to make them with the grandkids…so much fun! lots of great memories.

  96. I love Christmas baking with my mom!!! ….and we have to have shortbread….my husband loves oatmeal/dark chocolate macaroons, and Nanaimo bars remind me of Christmas to!!!!

  97. Old fashioned sugar cookies…cut out in shapes and iced or decorated

  98. LaNell Dobyns says:

    Snickerdoodles

  99. Cynthia Hogan says:

    My favorite Christmas cookies are Oatmeal raisin and Pecan/Chocolate chip cookies. With a steaming hot cup of coffee or tea they surely warm the soul. This year I am resolved to focus less on “shopping, hustle/bustle of things” and more on “relationship with the Lord”. When we look at the perfect gift of His Son, he shows us why giving is so important and the most important gift we can give others is the gift of ourselves, our prayers, our time, our talents and our love. Finding that perfect stillness in HIm quiets our soul and lifts our spirits. God Bless you all.– Cindi Hogan

  100. Love a recipe that doesn’t make so much! Love shortbread! Looking up for a peaceful Christmas in spite of many life challenges in our family this year.

  101. My favorite Christmas cookie has to be the ones that I make on Christmas Eve with my children for Santa. It’s not really about the flavor of the cookie, but we always make white chocolate chip because that’s Santa’s favorite ;), but about the time that I get to spend with my kids who are 9 and 4 this year. I love seeing the joy on their faces getting to bake with me and then their excitement when placing them under the tree. I bet that is the same feeling that God has for us. The pure joy of seeing us excited and happy.

  102. My favorite cookie for Christmas is a butter cookie that my mother in law made called Melt aways.

  103. Karla McElroy says:

    Decorated sugar cookies. I use several colors of frosting for lots of detail. I even use tooth picks to paint faves on the angels. It’s all about “doing” as a love gift for family in honor of The Gift.

  104. My favorite cookie is any cookie I make with my children. My son is 11 and my daughter is 8 and I can’t wait to bake for Christmas with them. I have special memories of baking with them over the years, especially the rolled out sugar cookies. It doesn’t matter what the recipe is, as long as we are together and enjoying each other.

  105. I love shortbread. Can’t wait to try this recipe. I don’t have a name for my favorite Christmas cookie, we just called them Chocolate Covered Cornflakes. The recipe came from my great-aunt who baked at least 20 different types of Christmas cookies every year, amounting to 500 or more cookies.

  106. I love the candy cane cookie! Sentimental and minty ;)

  107. Sherri Baker says:

    My favorite Christmas cookies are the frosted sugar cookies that we always made before Christmas. It is still a family tradition that has been carried down to many generations!

  108. My favorite Christmas cookie is sugar cookies cut in shapes and decorated beautifully. My daughter-in-law does them the best I’ve ever had in my life! Baking takes time, love and patience.

  109. I love Springerle cookies. I have my Grandmother’s recipe from Germany. They used anise, so they have a licorice taste. I hated them when I was little, but love them now!

  110. Amanda Pankey says:

    My favorite Christmas cookies were always the ones my grandpa made. He passed away a few years ago, and no one has been able to duplicate the recipe. They were cutout cookies with icing, but none I have had taste quite the same.

  111. I’m looking forward to reading these devotions. My favorite Christmas cookie is called Sweet Dreams.

  112. Linda Wirkkala says:

    I love cut-out and decirated sugar cookies!

  113. Sugar cookie cutouts are out favorite!

  114. Heather Gary says:

    Fave Christmas cookie are no-bake chocolate-peanutbutter-oatmeal cookies :)

  115. Gina Stewart says:

    Walkers–the best shortbread cookies ever! I have tried many times to imitate the recipe–will give this one a go and see how close i can get.
    Liz Curtis Higgs–just as Walkers shortbread cookie brings sweet memories and a comfort, so does Liz’ devotionals, books and her testimony brings encouragement, hope and energy to continue serving Jesus even then things are tough.

  116. One of my favorite cookies is rice krispie treats, becuase you can customize them to fit any season by using different flavored marshmellows or adding different flavored chocolate morsals. I remember growing up and helping my dad make them to hand out to all of our neighbors and friends every year at Christmas time.

  117. I don’t really like sweets but I do adore shortbread, I just have never in my life thought of making my own, which is crazy as I am known for my love of baking. I bake and give it away, which is so very fun, but seriously, how have I never thought to make my own shortbread? So I will jump on the bandwagon and say shortbread cookies.

  118. My favorite cookie is shortbread cookies with a little bit of icing on top!

  119. Laura Gail says:

    My favorite Christmas is molasses crinkles!

  120. Susan Mills says:

    melting moments. A special cookie my mom makes.

  121. Vera Masters says:

    My favorite cookies to make at Christmas are Snickerdoodles I love the smell of cinnamon through out the house and it is one of my kids favorites!! I am looking foward to making the Scottish Shortbreads for my husband !! Have a blessed Christmas!!

  122. Favorite Christmas cookie…have way too many. Spritz growing up. Only tried them a couple of times since i’ve been an adult. One cookie (can’t remember the name) from a cookbook Aleene’s (the glue/craft lady) put out 2 decades ago nearly? uses an icing bag and tip, makes shell like cookies. just pretty with colored sugar.
    love shortbread, Have not found my fav recipe (probably the first time i made in it college) so glad to have this recipe to try.
    love my sisters sugar cookies. They somehow never taste the same when I make them though.
    Thanks for offering this giveaway, it’s AWESOME!!

  123. Susan Snodgrass says:

    My favorite Christmas cookie is a pecan cookie I’ve been making for over 20 years. It’s so good and keeps for several months in a tin.
    By the way, I’ve been making that shortbread for years and it’s delicious!

  124. My favorite Christmas cookie has to be the ice box cookies my mom always makes. Yum!

  125. Judi Brinegar says:

    Scottish shortbread with a mug of warm cider please…………..

  126. Soft sugar cookies that my mom made. She passed away just a few days ago and I’m really trying to honor her memory with keeping Christ and our family traditions alive in this Christmas. I am an only child, my dad is 92. I feel like a toddler taking her first steps and trying to not wobble so much. If it were not for Christ’s strength in my weakness.. I just wouldn’t know what to do. God is good, true and faithful to HIS Word and promises.

  127. Carolyn Kidder says:

    All Christmas Cookies are delicious — and my favorites are Ginger Snaps. I remember my Great Grandma Pete making them — her’s have been unmatched for generations, however my Mother’s family recipe is delicious!

  128. Peppermint shortbread cookies!

  129. Lorri Shaw says:

    My favorite christmas cookie is what we call Haystacks. Made with choc. chips, butterscotch chips and chow mein noodles. Learn to make these years ago when I was a teenager and our youth leaders wife made these for us.

  130. Diana Wilson says:

    Cookies, Cookies, Cookies…is there anything better? And how do I pick just one favorite? Hmmmm…guess I would choose a cut-out sugar cookie recipe that I got from a friend years ago. I baked it with her kids when I babysat and with my daughter and now with my grandkids – for Easter, Valentines and Christmas. Big job, but the fun makes memories to treasure forever!

  131. Shirley Bruce says:

    My favorite Christmas cookies are no-bake chocolate oatmeal cookies. However, any cookie is good when you’re curled up in a blanket with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book. :-)

  132. one of my favorite Christmas cookie is peanut butter blossoms.yum!

  133. My favorite cookie is a cut-out, using my mother’s grandmother’s recipe. However we don’t make them with lard anymore!

  134. I think I have two favorite Christmas cookies. The Peanut Butter cookie with the Hershey’s kiss on top and the no-bake chocolate and peanut butter cookies. Have to limit my portions now, though. :)

  135. Jan Martin says:

    Favorite Christmas cookie is Santa’s Whiskers. A butter cookie with chopped maraschino cherries that are rolled in coconut after the dough is shaped into a log, so that the cookie when sliced has a ring of coconut around the edge. Like most of the posts above, this cookie has a family history.

  136. My favorite Christmas cookies are the sugar cookies that the kids decorate — those are the ones made with the most love! (Well, and mess! ;))

  137. Theresa rypstra says:

    Spekulaas are my favorite Christmas cookie.
    31 years ago I married into a Dutch family. I adopted some of the Dutch traditions, including celebrating Sinterkaas day on Dec. 5.

    Christmas cookie baking is quite a tradition in our home. I always start with Snickerdoodles which are one of my husband’s favorites. But my family’s favorite is a rolled sugar cookie recipe that I learned to bake from a friend’s mother, back in college, in her farmhouse kitchen.

  139. I love Christmas and making it special for my family. My two girls are grown up now and actually found out on thanksgiving I’m going to be a grandmother!! I’m so excited! But in April we adopted into our family a young man from Columbia he is 14 and then in May we took in a young man from Guyana he is 16 and then in Sept. We took in a young man from Ecuador he is 17. Wow, I’m still over whelmed with writing it. lol Good over whelmed. They are such a blessing. As I thought I was going to be empty nesting God had another plan. So This is the first American Christmas and I want it to be special showing Christ love all the way through. So my favorite cookie is snowballs. You know with the kiss covered in cookie dough and then rolled in powdered sugar. We shall see what the boys like. Can’t wait. Hope I win the books would love to share with them. God bless Tina

May God’s presence so fill each and everyone of you throughout this entire season! For unto us a child was born and his name shall be called Emmanuel, Prince of peace everlasting Father!

  145. My absolute cookie is the Gingerbread Cookie. My mother in law makes the best ones. I love a hot cup of cider or coffee and a warm pair of socks and some cookies and I am set. I am approaching Christmas in a very different fashion than in Christmas’ past. I am reading The Greatest Gift by Ann Voskamp and have been following Liz on her blog with the online study of The Women of Christmas. I need to feel Christmas in my heart.

  153. Reading these comments is making me hungry… ;)

  154. My favorite Christmas cookies are pizzelles! I bought a pizzelle maker so I can make them at home. Even though they take a while to make, I simply adore them. They especially remind me of Christmas since that is the only time I ever make them :-)

    My favorite cookie is one I make simply titled “Christmas Cookies ” They are like thumbprints with strawberry jam in the middle and rolled in walnuts. Delicious!

Scottish Shortbread cookies have long been my favorite; and because my husband only wants cookies with chocolate in them, I get to eat all of them:-) Of course, I make them last by only eating one or two a day. Thanks so much for the recipe. Oh, and I would be “pumped” beyond belief to win all three books!!!!!!!

  173. Peppernuts. They are a delicious small crunchy cookie. The recipe I use came from my great grandma.

  174. My favorite cookies are pudding cookies because you can make all flavors just by changing the instant pudding you use…decorate with nuts, candied fruits, etc.

    Remiinder: Jesus is the reason for the season!!

  175. My favorite Christmas cookie is what we call Russian Teacakes, sprinkled with red or green sugar. They are also my favorite wedding cookie sprinkled with the wedding colors. See a pattern, here? ;)

    My favorite Christmas cookie is a freshly decorated gingerbread man! It’s been a family tradition… my Mom and I used to do it, and now I’ve roped my new husband into it, too! We all love getting creative. Last year we even took scraps of dough and formed a little gingerbread kitten for our newly adopted family member!

    My favorite Christmas cookie has always been snickerdoodles. I love the smell of cinnamon filling the house with an aroma reminiscent of Christmases past.

Baking with my grandchildren also provides precious time to converse about looking for Christ in the Christmas season.

  200. Michelle Maynard says:

    I’d have to say my favorite Christmas cookie came from my grandma. The French waffle cookie.

  202. Suanne Salley says:

    My favorite Christmas cookie would be Molasses cookies – although I do make short bread a lot!

  207. Megan Wilson says:

    Truth be told, I don’t do Christmas cookies… *GASP* I know, terrible of me. However, my Aunt makes these mint chocolate ones that I adore! Seriously, I have to avoid her house when she makes them otherwise I risk gaining a million pounds. Lol. My all-time favorite Christmas dessert is homemade apple pie. Just thinking about it makes me giddy. :)

  219. Speculaas cookies- from the recipe my great-grandmother brought from the Netherlands.

  220. Cathy Gross says:

    Favorite cookie has to be a big, fat, soft, sugar cookie. Pair it with a glass of milk and eat ‘em warm and life is good. Growing up poor, we seldom got gifts at Christmas or very little. We lied to the kids at school about what we got, telling them we were not allowed to bring our things to school. Shame. At sixteen I got a job and we had Christmas at our house. But did we? We didn’t have Jesus. Gifts for twelve were under the tree to open but no real love to share. It wasn’t until I was an adult that I found the real reason for celebrating. This year I can barely come up with a Christmas list for my husband. I already have the greatest, everything else is just stuff!

  221. Gail Moore says:

    I love sugar cookies decorated by the kids.

  222. Pat Castle says:

    Did not have to search very far as I found Him many years ago. He lives in my heart.

  223. My favorite cookie is. Anisette Cookies. Always reminds me of baking with mom at Christmas time.

  225. Jo McKibben says:

    My favorite cookie is a butter cream wafer found in an old Betty Crocker cookie cookbook.

  226. My favorite Christmas cookie is old fashioned crispy sugar cookies. Love them with a glass of milk or coffee.

  227. My favorite cookie is an Armenian Butter cookie (ghoorabia), and no Armenian Christmas would be complete without Baklava (Armenian style). I love sharing the traditions I learned from my Grandmother/mother with my daughter knowing that she will keep this tradition going!

  228. Susan Johnson says:

    My favorite Christmas cookie. I’m not sure if this is what they are called, but I like the “spritz” cookies that you put through a cookie press. I haven’t had them in years. I have my mother’s press. Maybe I should try to find a recipe. Your shortbread recipe sounds great, also.

  229. Donna Godfrey says:

    Our family must have whoopie pies. I was raised Mennonite and we would double the recipe. For you that may not know they are soft chocolate cookies that you make a filling to sandwich them with. We love them!

  230. My family and I eat cookies only on occasion, but white chocolate macadamia nut is a definite favorite! May God deeply and dearly bless you, Mrs. Ehman and Mrs. Higgs, with a truly joyful CHRISTmas!

  231. Kathy Davis says:

  233. Hey there and Blessingsto the beginning of the Holiday season. Mine is not a cookie but old fashioned peanut butter fudge and not made with marshamallow cream and it is soooo… good. Yes and Jesus is the only reason for the Season……..God bless you all.

  234. My fav is shortbread but have not had any since we became gluten free. I would love to find a tried and true gluten free recipe though! In the meantime I make gluten free sugar cookies for the kids with icing made with natural dyes. They are quite happy with them.

  235. My favorite Christmas cookies are any cookies made with the children! it’s such fun to help them decorate the cookies…and make a mess at the same time! Such wonderful memories!!!

  236. alison nash says:

    My mother has a basic sugar cookie recipe that she’s made since before I was adopted (at 6 weeks old, I’m 34 now). The special part is the icing. Confectioners sugar and food color. It sounds so simple, yet they are amazing. Love, sugar and tradition baked in every one! ;)

  237. Thoroughly enjoy Liz’s books – we use the children’s books with the little ones at our church every year. My favorite cookie is the Austrian apple twist, a yeast crescent filled with apple bits, cinnamon & sugar. They are yummy for tea or breakfast.

  238. My favorite cookie is rolled sugar cookies that can be decorated. Love the taste and oh so much fun to make with children!

  239. Alisha Bennett says:

  240. My favorite Christmas cookie would be gingerbread…no sugar cookies…no spritz butter cookies..,no Scottish shortbread…wait, I really like lace cookies; umm peanut butter cookies, Yikes, I almost forgot…COCONUT macaroons..Well, it’s hard to make up my mind. I never met a Christmas cookie I didn’t like. Merry Christmas.

  241. My favorite cookie is a super-thin sugar cookie. They are a super secret family recipe…unfortunatly from a family not my own! I hope one day they will choose to share the secret.

    My favorite cookie for Christmas time are snickerdoodles! YUM!!!

  243. Crystal Scott says:

    My favorite Christmas Cookie is decorated sugar cookies..

  244. We love sugar cookies at my house! Decorated or not, they are an all time favorite. We also love Lemon Meltaways and shortbread. Cookies are such a tradition at Christmastime. In a world that moves way too fast, it is always a blessing to slow down and cook special meals and desserts with your family at Christmastime.
    Bless you all!
    KK

  245. Jodi Howell says:

    My favorite cookie is snickerdoodles. For Christmas though any cookie that I am able to make with my kids and us all have a good time is the best. Making memories to share and enjoy instead of all the hustle and bustle.

  246. Brenda Pennington says:

    We have an old recipe, that we make every Chocolate chip, pecan, oatmeal. They are good any time of the year but are special because we make them as a family.

  247. Claudia Thompson says:

    My favorite cookie is an iced sugar cookie. Second favorite is what we called in my growing up years a crescent; have heard it referred to as a Mexican wedding cookie, snowball, etc. In high school home ec for a project, I had to make 12 different kinds of Christmas cookies. My 3 siblings really liked that!!! Thanks for the giveaway.

  248. I have so many favorites, but I think my all time favorite Christmas cookies are ones that my mom used to make. They were Mexican wedding Cookies. Also, cream cheese wreath cookies.

  249. joanna mclaughlin says:

    My favorite cookie is the church windows. 1 Bag of chocolate chips, 1 stick of butter melt together. Fold in miniature marshmallows. Roll into a roll and roll into the coconut. refrigerate for an hour. Then slice. When you slice them you will see the colored marshmallows and they look like stained glass windows. And they are delicious.

  250. I enjoy “Santa’s Whiskers,” a blend of butter cookie with cherries and coconut, yummmmmm. God bless!

  251. Crystal Blair says:

    My favorite Christmas cookie is homemade peanut butter cookies because of all the memories of my mom and I baking them together. I imagine she’s having them with Jesus this time of year. These books would be an amazing blessing for my home and my church.

  252. That’s a hard one – I guess it would have to be the rolled sugar cookies because I make them with the kids. :-)

  253. Cris-Annette says:

    My favorite Christmas cookies are ones that my childhood best friend’s Mom used to make all the time and on occasion (when I have all the ingredients) I will make them as well. They are called Church Windows. My second favorite that I make for cookie swaps are Snowballs.

  254. Karen Anne says:

    I love Spritz cookies, made with a cookie press.

  255. I enjoyed Liz and Ann on the webcast–Christmas on the Farm. I would love to read her book! Thanks for posting this blog page, Karen.

  256. Louise Rochon says:

    My favorite cookie is Baby Bunting Kolachi, with Poppy seed , or Raspberry Jam filling , a Christmas and Easter tradition my son helps make each year. The Scottish shortbread looks wonderful too, We’ll make this soon!

  257. Anise cookies with sprinkles- The bakery that made these went out of business so I haven’t had them for a few years.

  258. I am not sure if it’s peanut butter balls or Hungarian ice box cookies.

  259. Kim Terrazas says:

    Bring our Christmas memories back !!! Making all kinds of assorted cookies withy former Mother in Law. Christmas Spirit in the air and listening to the Christmas carols while baking cookies. My favorite Christmas cookies are Russian Tea Balls, Gingerbread cookies and Peanut Butter Blossoms. We saved the best dessert last – baking a birthday cake for our Lord Jesus Christ. Christmas has a very special meaning – to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. That’s what Christmas is all about. Christmas is Love !!!

  260. My grandfather is from Scotland and each Christmas we make the family shortbread and read a wonderful Christmas book. Liz has always been a favorite! Thank you for sharing.

  261. My favorite Christmas cookie is the decorated sugar cookie. I loved making those with my Mother when I was a child. Today, I make them with my grandchildren.

  262. Stephanie says:

    My favorite Christmas cookie is the sugar cookie with colorful holiday sprinkles!

  263. Kathy Welch says:

    My favorite Christmas cookie: Candied Cherry Cookies. I’ve been making them for years. You make the dough ahead of time and just slice and bake when you’re ready for fresh baked cookies. Yum!

  264. Amelia Yust says:

    I love Sugar Cookies :) I love just about every cookie but have to admit sugar cookies are closest to the top :)

  265. My favorite cookie is gingerbread men. Loved when mom would let us kids help make them and decorate them. Carried this over with my girls. It makes for a nice Christmas tradition.

  266. Shortbread! Because of my Scottish heritage. Can’t wait to try Liz’s recipe!!

  267. My favorite Christmas cookie is the white snowball cookies with the nuts. Yum!

  268. My favorite Christmas cookies are Date balls rolled in coconut! YUMMY!

  269. Karla Powrie says:

  270. My mom’s decorated gingerbread men, um um good!!

  271. Sandy Maloney says:

    My favorite is chocolate chip cookies – Toll House. Always!!!
    But right now I’m enjoying any that my husband chooses to bake! He has made sugar cookies & chocolate chip & the best part is I didn’t have to make them. He’s a good cook.

  272. My favorite Christmas cookie is Sugar Cookies. Growing up, we only got them at Christmas and it was something we looked forward to as a family to cut out the shapes and to sprinkle with sugar. This year, I’m hoping to make my own with my new husband in our new home!

  273. May favorite cookies are called “Aunt Helen’s Cookies” ( because my Aunt Helen made them!!!). Graham cracker crumbs, sweetened condensed milk, mini chocolate chips – roll in a ball & roll in coconut. Reminds me of Christmas!!

  274. Marlene Shaw says:

    We have one more week to go on the Women of Christmas study that we are doing in my home. I know I can say how blessed we all have been to read and study together. I am using the video “The Nativity Story” as you have suggested Liz. It also has added tremendously to our time together. Thank you for writing this beautiful little book that has opened up new possibilities in our own lives because of what God has done in Elizabeth, Mary, and Anna as well as the men in their lives.

  275. My favorite Christmas cookie are the ones we call “Logs”. They are a chocolate chip cookie rolled into a log shape. After baking, the ends are dipped in melted chocolate and nuts. Yum! Thanks for the chance and God bless both of your ministries!

  276. Jessica Budd says:

    Wedding Cakes!!!!

  277. My family loves the cutout cookies. I’m more of a bar cookie type person. The layered bars with sweetened condensed milk are my favorite! Merry Christmas!!

  278. Marlene Shaw says:

    Sorry, I forgot my cookie suggestion – today we snacked on Molasses Krinkles, yum, with ginger, cinnamon and cloves.

  279. Yum! How exciting!

  280. I’m having to try to find new wheat-free recipes this year. I love traditional Scottish shortbread and hate that it’s off the menu for me. I will, however, make it for the rest of the family.

  281. My favorite Christmas cookie was/is my mom’s receipe for M & M sugar cookies. It always makes me feel as if she is still here with us when I eat one.

  282. Susan Seagroves says:

    I loved all of my mother’s cookies/cakes/pies/etc for Christmas. I guess my favorite was her Thick, soft, sugar cookies. She made them from scratch and we would roll the dough out and cut them in Christmas shapes.

  283. I love shortbread and frosted sugar cookies. I still bake them for our neighborhood cookie exchange.

  284. Lisa Zenero says:

    My favorite cookie at Christmas time is toll house cookies with M & M’s instead of chocolate chips.
    They are my favorite, because they are the only thing my Mom ever made from scratch. She wasn’t much of a cook and our birthday cakes were always store bought, so I always loved these toll house m & m cookies. I think it’s been about 40 years since she made them, but I can still taste them in my memories.
    God Bless and Merry Christmas!

  285. My favorite Christmas cookie is a teacake cookie. My mother-in-law made the best and she would hold out the perfect cookies for Christmas day. We enjoyed the “seconds” just as much. They wee crispy and not too sweet.
    Merry Christmas and happy cooking to all.

  286. My favorite Christmas cookie is the rolled out sugar cookie! Our Christmas tradition is to let the grandchildren come over to decorate them; and of course, eat them with hot chocolate!

  287. Cindy Andrews says:

    I love shortbread too and often buy Walkers. A close second would be Thumbprints.

  288. Favorite cookie is shortbread….sometimes I will add almond flavoring for a twist….can’t wait to try this recipe!

  289. I love snickerdoodles for Christmas!

  290. Lisa Gill says:

    My favorite Christmas cookie is a sugar cookie recipe that was handed down to my mom from her mother. One of the ingredients in this recipe is sour cream. When I was a child I always helped my mom make these cookies by rolling out the dough and cutting out the shapes. Ever since I was married which has been 33 years now I have always used this sugar cookie recipe for my sugar cookies and it never fails me! They always turn out and anyone who eats them really likes them! A lot of friends have asked me for the recipe so that they could make them also. I have tried other sugar cookie recipes but none ever turned out as good as the sugar cookie recipe with the sour cream in that was handed down to me by my grandmother!

  291. Selina Gonzalez says:

    My favorite Christmas cookie is gingerbread! I get gingerbread cravings all the time starting right around Thanksgiving. My second favorite is shortbread, though!

  293. Angelique Jones says:

    My favorite cookie happens to be shortbread. Thank you for the recipe. And also for your sweet blogs that make my days. Since my morning hours are dedicated to the Lord I really get a kick out of your blogs.

  294. Kim Thompson says:

    Peanut butter balls are my favorite.

  295. I have to say my grandma’s 7 Layer Cookies are the best at Christmas.

  296. Melinda Mayeur says:

    My favorite cookies is white chocolate macadamia nut

  297. My favorite Christmas cookies are spritz cookies made with a cookie press. They are a family favorite recipe from my Mom and her Mom. I look forward to your 5-day challenge!

  298. Jeannette Ragan says:

    My favorite Christmas cookies are the ones I can make with my children. Making memories with them is what is special to me and passes on memories for them to pass on to their children.

  299. Cut out sugar cookies are my favorite. I always get together with my friend and her girls and we make about 12 dozen of these every year

  300. Kimberly Jaques says:

    Definitely anything GINGERBREAD!!!

  301. Deboran Everist says:

    My favorite cookie are the gingermen bread….I love dressing them up and they are oh so good with a hot cup of anything, coffee, cocoa, cider, milk!!! Thanks for the shortbread recipe…my old recipe was equal parts of sugar, flour and butter. A bit dry but did the trick…I’m off to the kitchen to try yours. Merry Cristmas Liz and friends.

  302. excited to be involved with the 12 days of Christmas :) I think i’d have to go with the chocolate no-bake cookies as a favorite. I got the recipe some 40 or so years ago!

  303. Pat Saltzgaber says:

    My favorite cookie is also shortbreads. My mother who was of Scottish heritage made these every Christmas. My daughter has taken over this tradition.

  304. I love shortbread and hot tea!!

  305. Kris Konick says:

    My FAVORITE CHRISTMAS COOKIES are iced sugar cookies!! You know just the awesome sugar cookies with the powdered sugar icing, LOTS of sugary goodness!!!!

  306. Marsha Elliott says:

    My favorite Christmas cookie is the peanut butter coconut bars my mom always made for Christmas. It just doesn’t feel like Christmas unless I make these cookies.

  307. I love not only spending the Christmas season with my family but with my church family. Second only to reading a great book!

  308. Davinna Beale says:

    I love the date pinwheel cookies my Grandmother Bradshaw made. My father still makes them each year. I don’t love them for the taste as much as the memories of family and a loving Christian home.

  309. Favorite Christmas cookie/treat is a toss up between gingersnaps (I make them soft and
    chewy, not hard) and peanut butter bon bons. YUM!

  310. Pecan crescents every Christmas for us/

  311. Our favorite cookie is between Chocolate Crinkles and Rosettes.

  312. I have three favorite Christmas cookies (can’t decide which I like the best): Mexican wedding cakes, decorated cut-out sugar cookies and “Hello Dollies,” which are very rich with chocolate and butterscotch chips, coconut, condensed milk and a layer of graham cracker crumbs. Yum!

  313. My favorite Christmas cookie is “Aunt Dale’s Sugar Cookies” -they have an amazing, melt-in-your-mouth texture (due to the confectioner’s sugar in the recipe.) One can eat literally a dozen in the blink of an eye, so they can be a bit “dangerous” to have around! :)

    Merry Christmas everyone!

  314. Mary Lou Kleveland says:

    My favorite Christmas cookie is a bar cookie called Merry Morsels. It has a buttery graham cracker base, marshmallow cream and mini m and ms. It is so yummy that we often make it for birthdays or other celebrations instead of cake because my children like it better.

  315. My sister-in-law makes the best almond star cookies. They are second only to my momma’s old fashion tea cakes. Love both of these cookies with hot chocolate in the winter.

  316. Melissa Farra says:

    We would spend a day making cookies and my favorite was a sugar cookie that we dashed with cinnamon and sugar like a snickerdoodle and then we would dip one end in chocolate. The memories that the smell of cookies bring tears to my eyes even now.

  317. My favorite Christmas cookie is gingerbread pinwheels…. simply store bought sugar cookie dough and store bought gingerbread dough rolled out, stacked on top of each other, rolled up, and sliced and baked.

  318. Susan Brannock says:

    Many years ago I was part of a large family with many Christmas traditions and that included baking holiday cookies together. One year I found a new recipe to try and everyone teased me because this recipe included bacon fat. We had lots of laughs over it, and the cookies ended up a hit with everyone. The years have passed and much of my family is now gone. One Christmas I wanted to make the cookies again just because they were associated with a wonderful memory, but I couldn’t locate the recipe. I searched my books and online, but after a few years sadly gave up. I was telling the story to a friend while we were in a second hand store and was even able to describe what the book looked like even though it had been 20 years since that day with my family. She got a funny look on her face, ran to another area of the store and came back with the exact book that contained the recipe. I bought the book and now have the recipe. Swedish Ginger Cookies! It’s my favorite holiday cookie because of the memories of a wonderful day with loved ones.

  319. Sheila H. says:

    My favorite is baklava when I get a chance to make it from scratch. Next would be a good old fashion homemade chocolate chip cookie. My daughters loves forme to make buckeyes every year, now she will even help me make them.

  320. Donna Sakabu says:

    I am half Greek, so at Christmas and Easter I love to cook Greek specialties (some of the recipes are long time family ones). My favorite Christmas cookie is Kourambiethes-made with flour, powdered sugar, and lots of butter, with a walnut pressed in the center, then completely covered in powdered sugar. Melt in your mouth type of cookies (but don’t choke on the powdered sugar!)

  321. My favorite Christmas cookies are no bake cookies. My Moma always made them for us when we were growing up. They are a special memory for me

  322. My favorite is an old recipe called glazed pumpkin. Spicy cake-like cookie with brown sugar glaze on top. Super yummy! God bless you & Merry Christmas!

  323. my favorite is snikerdoodles

  324. my favorite Christmas cookie is church windows

  325. My favorite is Molasses Spice cookies.

  326. Soft gingerbread iced. So glad Liz lead me to your site. Calm is what I need for Christmas!

  327. I love popcorn balls, but since I have done diet therapy I do my brown rice syrup over popcorn a great treat with little sugar.
    I love Liz’s Books they great when days were rough.
    Thanks Kathy

  328. Not sure that I could choose a favorite —- perhaps homemade speculoos, my great aunt’s cut-out sugar cookies, my mother’s butter balls (aka snowballs or wedding cookies), great-grandma’s brown sugar cookies, shortbread, gingersnaps, and peanut butter fudge bonbons. Other favorite treats: cream cheese mints and butterscotch haystacks.

  329. Carla Lewis says:

  337. My Mother’s recipe for Canadian Four Roses Chocolate Drop Cookies. Especially now that I’ve lost both my parents. Also, a Molasses Crisp Cookie.

  338. Almond press cookies

  339. One of my favorite cookies is the date nut pinwheels that my Grandma used to make, and only at Christmas.

  345. I absolutely love Lizzy’s shortbread recipe! I, too, make it for a great snack with tea! Love you, Liz! ~Betsy

  346. Miss Liz, my favorite Christmas cookie is my Grandma’s Sour Cream Cookies. They are like Sugar cookies but better. Santa always got them and he liked 7up with them. :-)

  347. What we call Whoopie Pies. I rarely eat them now because of trying to lose some weight. Its a soft chocolate cookie with a creamy filling and at Christmas time they are really yummy with candy canes crushed and added to the filling!

  351. Janet Andrews says:

    My all time favorite cookie is Chocolate Chip. I remember as a child making them with my older sister. After baking them, she would hide them until Christmas to share with the family. My older brothers tried many times to get me to show them the hiding place. However; my sister was smart enough to never let me see her hiding place.

  352. My favorite cookie for Christmas time is the butter cookie recipe I received from my grandma. Every year she made little Christmas tree shapes with her cookie press and tinted them green, then sprinkled red sugar on them. Now that Grandma has been in heaven for many years, I make them and my adult daughter also makes them every year!

  353. Sugar cookies cut with our nativity cookie cutters because I can never get enough of the sheer delight they encourage in my children! Plus they are delicious.

  354. My favorite cookie is molasses or gingerbread at Christmas. It just goes with the holliday! Of course, anything with chocolate chips is good anytime of the year!

  355. My favorite cookie is my angel kiss cookie recipe. It is a cookie made with egg whites, little salt, vanilla, cream of tartar and sugar. I sprinkle sprinkles on top to make them festive. Wishing you a blessed holiday.

  356. Janet Worthy says:

    It’s a tie between orange-cranberry-white chocolate and a German iced honey cookie my momma used to make!

  361. Chocolate Crinkles can’t be beat!

  362. My favorite cookie to enjoy for Christmas would be homemade peanut butter cookies with Hershey kisses in the middle. These remind me of my dad who passed away several years ago because the homemade peanut butter cookies were always his favorite, and with the Hershey candy in the center, it reminds me of a kiss sent from him for Christmas.

  363. Margaret Holahan says:

    It’s not really a cookie, rather it’s a slice, but my mother always made White Christmas for us when we were kids. I especially liked it because it’s name after my favourite Christmas movie!

  364. Elizabeth says:

    I’m in love with Pecan Sandies at Christmas time… well, maybe all year;) But a hot latte in front of the fire with family and friends make them so much more memorable!!

  365. My favorite has to be Butter Pecan cookies. I’ve had my mother-in-law’s recipe for almost 40 years and still make them every year.

  366. I love all cookies but love sugar cookies, gingerbread, Mexican wedding cookies and of course chocolate chip. :)

  367. Melanie Pike says:

    My all-time favorite cookie is a homemade cut-out sugar cookie with vanilla frosting. I learned to make them with my mom (who was a terrific baker) and she always allowed me to be creative in decorating them; the kitchen became mine once the cookies were all baked. Haven’t made them in years, so my new fave became Snickerdoodles. I have no idea what I will do this year because now I’m gluten-free and refined sugar-free. *pout* ;-)

    BTW, love Scottish shortbread! One year we had to keep buying the BIG tins of Walker’s from BJ’s because I kept getting into them. *drool*

    Blessings, and Merry Christmas!

  368. My mom always made these butter cookies around Christmas. She used a cake frosting tube to form them into a wreath, then drizzled homemade frosting and sprinkled green sprinkles on top. I always steal a couple bags when I go home to visit.

  369. My favorite Christmas cookie is Russian Teacakes, although I LOVE genuine shortbread and was thrilled to see your recipe! I like the nuts and the powdered sugar in the Russian Teacakes – the latter of which makes me feel like a kid every time I eat one, as I try not to wear the powdered sugar and have to laugh at the mess I make.

  370. Julie Bonafice says:

    My favorite cookie is all of them, but if I have to choose, then it’s a glazed sugar cookie

  371. My favorite cookies are snowballs!

  372. I will definitely be trying the shortbread recipe. I try to make sure that our Christmas celebrations are Christ centred and will definitely aimed to spend more time In his presence this year.

  373. Candy Cane Cookies, shaped like candy canes.
    My mom made them every year, and now I make them for my kids.

  374. My favorite cookie is Pfeffernüsse

  375. stepahnie Cohrac says:

    My favorite is to make persimmon cookies for my hubby! its his favorite!

  376. Denise Warweg says:

    I absolutely love “The Women of Christmas”. It’s a great way to prepare your heart for the Christmas season!

  377. Susan Fletcher says:

    Hard question to answer, but I’d have to say sausage balls if that can count as a cookie! I’m not into sweets too much, but a soft slightly undercooked sausage ball just hits the spot with a cup of extra hot coffee! Thanks for this giveaway!

  378. Colleen G. says:

    Merry Christmas!
    My favorite Christmas cookie is an old time favorite – my mothers chocolate chip cookie.

    I have tried to make them “her way” but can’t even come close.
    -Colleen G.

  379. I love peanut butter cookies with a Wilbur Bud in the middle!

  380. My favorite Christmas cookies are the ones my Ma-ma made
    every year and that I now make each year. They are called
    Icebox cookies. They must be chilled in the fridge and then sliced
    Ma-ma made hers with hickory nuts, but mine are made with pecans.
    It’s Christmas when the cookies are in the oven baking and
    I am remembering the many happy Christmas memories on
    my grandparent’s farm.

  381. Reba Harvey says:

    I love ooey, gooey cookies with a nice cup of coffee. My favorite would be my chocolate chip, with walnuts. Sitting at the kitchen table with my grandkids and kids while the cookies are baking, bring back memories of Christmases past, and hopefully give my little ones pleasant memories in the years to come.

  382. Judy Weeks says:

    Thank you for the Scottish shortbread cookie recipe. I think I will make them for my granddaughter, McKenzie, who is turning 13 this Sunday. She will love them with her hot tea! Sweet Blessings!

  383. Sheryl Thaxton says:

    My family’s favorite Christmas (or anytime!) cookie would have to be Lemon Cookies. So light and fluffy! They never last more than a day or two in our house! :-)

  384. I love crispy thin sugar cookies cut out and sugar sprinkled like my Grandmother made. Have never mastered the art of rolling them out as thin as she did. Am reading the Women of Christmas now -love it. Merry Christmas to you.

  385. Anything covered in powdered sugar!

  386. Excited to try this recipe! And would love to read these books!

  387. Love my mother’s recipe for sugar cookies, although no one makes as good as she did. My kids and grandkids expect that my fudge will be present at all holidays.

  388. Shannon Seidt says:

    My favorite Christmas cookie is a simple, thin, crispy Gingersnap. Perfect with a cup of coffee.

  389. Barbara Wolf says:

    My favorite are the spritz cookies. I used to bake them with my mom when I was younger. She would let me use the cookie spritizing gun. Now days it is me and my 6 year old daughter that make them and send pictures of them to my mom. I love adding peppermint to the dough.

  390. I love butter cookies!

  391. Soft decorated sugar cookies. Looking forward to making sugar cookies with my grand kids ages 6, 3, 2, 1.

  393. Bonnie Roof says:

    Hi, Liz, & Karen!

    I make numerous kinds of cookies, candies, & other baked goods at Christmas, but two family/friend favorites are chess bars, & no-bake chocolate oatmeal – & I always have to make peanut butter fudge, I love ANYTHING peanut butter (buckeyes are the best form of peanut butter candy, but more time consuming).

    Will certainly be trying the shortbread recipe – this week, & keeping it handy to make all during the year – to eat with all that tea I drink! Planned to make it last Christmas, but never got around to it, & forgot about it, afterwards. Making it a point, this year!

    I have LOVED every one of your bible studies, Liz, & so appreciate your leaving them on your blog – to refer to during the year, especially helpful if I have a particularly busy season with the elderly ill members in my family, & don’t have time to access them as they are posted. Love, also, your transparency in relating your faults & “boo-boo’s” – right along with your readers – makes it easier for us to acknowledge ours!

    Love you, too, my sister-in-Christ – I SO appreciate you!! Thanks for ALL you do – sending a hug to warm your heart, & a prayer for your ministry & travels!

  400. My favorite are the Sugar cookies my neighbor bakes in all kinds of Christmas Shapes then brings a huge tin to our home. She does this so the kids and I can have a great time decorating them. SInce I work full time, by the time I get home from work the last thing I want to do is bake cookies then decorate them. So she does the baking and my children and I do the decorating. She is a blessing from above for sure!

  401. Peanut Blossoms..no…wait…Frosted Sugar Cookies…no…Russian Teacakes….

    I have a problem!!

    Thanks for the shortbread recipe! I have a recipe given me by a Welsh relatives and it calls for so many ounces of caster sugar, etc. etc. This one will be easier to follow.

  406. When we were young, my mother spent many hours baking in the kitchen and filling tins with all kinds of cookies. I remember her using a very old pizzelle maker, the kind where you only made one at a time, and you used it over the stove. Of all the cookies that my mom made, my very favorite was the simple but wonderfully delicious chocolate chip. Warm and soft from the oven! Yum!

  407. That recipe looks delicious! We love Christmas cookies. We eat many batches of the peanut butter blossoms during the holiday season.

    I love Christmas crackers–melt in your mouth goodness :)-Gingerbread cookies are a close second. My absolute favorite, though, is my mom’s fruitcake–she makes it and mails it to me every year. The best way to eat it is to heat it up and then put a little butter on it.

  441. Any cookie with chocolate is my favorite!

  442. Biscochitos, a wonderful Southwestern Christmas cookie from our beautiful state of New Mexico!

  443. Cindy Rogers says:
