This post is part of the Create Christmas series on The Purple Pumpkin Blog – a celebration of everything Christmas and Winter. Now in its 8th year, the 2019 series is bigger and better, running from November through December 31st!

It seems like everyone gets their baking hat on during the holidays – even if they don’t bake a thing through the rest of the year!

There is something magical about getting in the kitchen and cooking a batch (or several) of cookies.

Baking is good for the soul and most cookies are really easy to make.





It’s a fun activity for the kids to get involved with too, in fact, it’s a great way for the whole family to bond on a cold weekend afternoon.

Stock up the Christmas cookie jar and grab a few to nibble on with a hot beverage while snuggled under a blanket on the sofa with a Christmas movie.

Cookies from our Cookie Decorating Party

Cookies also make wonderful edible gifts – for friends, family, neighbors, local service people, teachers, and more.

Place inside a pretty tin that can be reused again and again. Or you could make up gift tins or jars of the ingredients to make their own cookies.

Why not host a cookie exchange or cookie decorating party and get friends and family involved with the holiday cookie making!

I threw a cookie decorating party last year and baked a big batch of sugar cookies that we all had so much fun decorating!
