A cookbook full of Christmas cookies is one magical book. The Holiday Cookies cookbook is compiled of prize-winning family recipes that have been submitted to the Chicago Tribune's Holiday Cookie Contests throughout the decade. Inside, you'll find over 100 tried and true holiday cookies. The book has been edited by the Chicago Tribune staff and includes cookies, bars, brownies, and more.

What makes this cookbook so unique is the fact that the recipes are from home cooks just like you. Families share their traditional cookie recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation. There are 6 categories of holiday treats: Simple Drop Cookies, Sugar & Spice, Fruit & Nut Treats, Chocolate Delights, Sandwich Cookies, and Brownies & Bars. You will find versions of your own traditional holiday cookies, cookies from around the world, and cookies you'll be dying to try. This is a truly great resource for holiday cookies.

You can find three cookie recipes right here:


As you flip through the pages, you'll find photos of the cookies themselves as well as some with the person who made them. Though not all recipes are accompanied by a photo, each one comes with a few sentences about the cookie. These tidbits give a glimpse into the world of the recipe submitter. The personal stories and photos offer warmth that is sometimes lacking in other cookbooks. This cookbook will surely make your holidays a little more merrier.
