These recipes are my personal picks. I spent yesterday’s evening looking for Christmas treats to make with my kids. Since I’m bad at cooking, I always pick super easy recipes. These eight are no exception. Read on and choose your favorite ones.

1 Soft sugar cookies

These amazingly soft sugar cookies are like real snowflakes. They require simple ingredients and are quick to make. All it takes is about 40 minutes and some easy mixing of dairy and dry ingredients like sugar, flour and baking powder. Ask your children to help in preparation. Get the full recipe here.

2 Fun reindeer


If you want to jazz up your classic gingerbread man cookie, just turn it upside down and decorate as a fun reindeer. Apart from baking gingerbread man cookies, you will need to make or purchase chocolate frosting and candy toppings. Get the full recipe here.

3 Melting snowmen


Looking for a festive way to decorate your classic round cookies? Turn them into melting snowmen. Just frost your cookies with white icing, top with a little bit microwaved marshmallow and decorate with anything that you have handy to create those funny (or not) melting snowmen.

4 Christmas Oreos


If you are anything like me and you’re not good at baking or you have no time for it, grab some Oreos and turn them into Christmas ones. Simply dip them in chocolate and decorate with candies or frosting. It all depends on your creativity and imagination. Pinterest has plenty of festive ideas.
