Keriann's Best Speculaas Cookies (recipe link


"
My two favorite Dutch cookies are Speculaas and Stroopwafles. Speculaas are an all time traditional holiday treat in Holland. Fun fact - the reason we call cookies 'cookies' and not 'biscuits' like the English do is because of the Dutch influence here. They call them koekjas, pronounced cook-ya!

Speculaas have their own special spice mix similar to our pumpkin pie spice with a touch of white pepper too."

 

Kay's Christmas Eve Mice (recipe link)


"My fave holiday cookie isn't really a cookie - it is Christmas Eve mice like in the night before Christmas Poem. I make it every Christmas Eve, they are so funky!"

 

Leah's Matzoon Cookie Recipe (recipe link)


"This is an Armenian recipe. Armenians don't do overly sweet desserts, but this is a fun and simple recipe that is really good with a cup of tea or coffee. It is similar to a muffin top. FYI- Matzoon is plain yogurt!"

 

Inga's Favorite Gingerbread Cookies (recipe link)


"This was a tradition that I started when my kids were little. I'd make big batches for them to decorate and as they got older they would have their friends do it along with a gift exchange."

 

Elizabeth's Italian Wedding Cookie Recipe (recipe link)


"My mother-in-law is a prolific baker and makes so many tins of cookies that they can be stacked from floor to ceiling. Each year she adds varieties to make sure everyone gets their favorites! I can't wait to eat these Italian Wedding Cookies."
