Holiday Cookie RecipesToday we’re sharing some easy holiday cookie recipes that you can use to indulge in some winter baking. We have two recipes, one for sugar cookies and one for double chocolate cookies. You can make these recipes for yourself, or you can use our printable gift tags to create a cookie mix jar for loved ones. 

The downloads below include printable recipe cards that you can give with your gift so that people know how to make the recipes. The gift jar should include all the dry ingredients in the holiday cookie recipes, and the recipe cards will show the few wet ingredients that need to be added when baking. You will also find matching gift tags with holiday greetings for your jars. Both the printable holiday cookie recipes and the gift tags are customizable! To edit these printables, you will need to download and install the free fonts Sanchez and Brushgyo. Use Brushgyo to edit the script font holiday greetings on the tags, and use Sanchez for the rest of the text.

There are three different gift tags available in two sizes. Once your printables are edited, you can print them onto 8.5 x 11 white cardstock. Punch a hole at the top of the tags and thread some pretty twine or ribbon through to attach them to your gift jars. Easy! All of the recipes on our site are gluten free, and you can browse through them here. Stay tuned for when we share our cookie mix jars project, where you can decorate jars as adorable winter characters for gifting these baked good recipes! For more easy DIY gift ideas, take a look at our ultimate DIY gift guide. Cheers! ~ Lia and the Team
