The holiday season is officially underway and I can't wait to bake my first batch of cookies this weekend! Home-baked cookies are a thoughtful gift for everyone — co-workers, family, friends and neighbors. I wanted to change things up a bit this year and try some different recipes, so I've collected some of my newest favorites to share with you here today. Grab a cup of coffee (or a glass of milk) and dig in!

christmas sugar cookies
No holiday is complete without sugar cookies cut in your favorite shapes like Christmas trees and candy canes. Learn what makes this recipe stand out from the others and get some helpful cutting tips, too.

cream cheese spritz cookies christmas
In these classic spritz cookies, the cream cheese makes them extra hard to resist, and the cookie press makes them extra cute and gift-worthy!

gingerbread man cookies
The sweet and spicy smell of gingerbread man cookies can't be beat. Plus they're so much fun to decorate — which is one of the things us crafters like about them. This special recipe is a hybrid — be warned, it's extra spicy!

eggnog cookies
Nothing says the holidays like eggnog — and what better way to get your fix than in a batch of eggnog cookies. The nog is baked right in and drizzled on top. These cookies come out super soft.... Talk about addictive! 

red velvet cookies
Just saying the words "red velvet gooey butter cookies" makes my mouth water. This recipe is a brilliant blend of a boxed cake mix with homemade vanilla extract ... and then there's all the butter and cream cheese. Crowd-pleaser!

raspberry jam thumbprint cookies
These raspberry jam thumbprint cookies are made with a traditional Scottish shortbread recipe — so they're pretty much guaranteed to melt in your mouth. They take a wee bit longer to make, but they're so, so worth it!

chocolate hot cocoa cookies
This hot cocoa cookie has everything but the mug! Warm, melted, gooey chocolate surrounded by a chewy chocolate cookie topped with a yummy marshmallow. Simply divine.

chocolate peppermint cookies
Chocolate and peppermint go together like Christmas and presents. You can whip up this holiday cookie recipe quickly in about an hour, too. That crunchy candy cane topping is calling me!
