The Most Popular Christmas Cookie in America (Recipe + Other Cookies!)


Everyone loves cookies around Christmas time. Personally, I look forward to having the skilled bakers in my family flex their muscles to really show off their skills around the holiday season; even more so than I look forward to the presents under the tree.

But what’s the most popular Christmas cookie in America? While many “most popular food” lists have a strange pick, the most popular Christmas cookie is one I whole-heartedly agree with. The Classic Peanut Butter Blossom has been a Christmas treat made by my Aunt since I was old enough to sneak into the kitchen and reach up onto the counter to steal these while my Dad wasn’t looking. 

When I picture Christmas, I can’t think of the tree, the presents, and the white fluffy snow without thinking of these cookies!

If you’d like to make these cookies for your friends and families, I’ve found a recipe from Betty Crocker that mimics almost exactly that of my Aunt’s. The only difference is that my Aunt used Crisco instead of butter. 

Check out the Betty Crocker Recipe here. 

Honestly, either Crisco or butter makes some incredible cookies that your family will thoroughly enjoy!
