Top 25 Christmas Cookie Recipes

Since the update of this site in March 2021, the “Top 25” is no longer being calculated. But Christmas-Cookies.com has more than 20 years of data from the old website, ranking the very best recipes of over 500 Christmas cookie recipes since the reviews were added in 1999.

Some of the entries are surprising, but it’s all in the math. The old site let people assign a star rating without leaving a review, so if reading the current reviews it doesn’t seem to add up, it’s because star ratings without reviews are figured into the calculations for this list. Also, some cookies had hundreds of reviews, and I only coped the first dozen or so to the new site…you won’t see the hundreds here, but they were figured into this list.

Here they are, from the top.
