Easy Christmas Cookies
I’m not sure what bug bit me this holiday season, but I am baking more this year than ever before! Yesterday the kids and I were in the mood for some cookies, but I wasn’t in the mood to go to the store, so we were limited in making something that we already had the ingredients for.
I needed something easy, but something the kids could have fun with. These Christmas blossom cookies were perfect. They look fancy, but they are simple, festive and they are delicious! They only take minutes to prepare so they’ll be ready to serve in no time!
How To Make Christmas Blossoms
Dough – The first thing you’ll need to make is the sugar cookie dough. You can make your own dough, or buy some store-bought dough (no judging here!) If using store-bought, I prefer using the Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix that comes in a bag – it just tastes the best to me. If you’re looking for a homemade version, here is my favorite homemade Sugar Cookies.
Decorate Them – Next, roll your sugar cookie dough into festive sprinkles or colored sugars to give your blossoms their Christmas look.
Bring The Heat – Bake the Christmas cookie blossoms according to cookie dough package or the recipe’s directions.
Hershey’s Kiss – As soon as you pull them out of the oven, add a Hershey’s kiss to the center of each cookie. You can use regular chocolate Kisses or the white chocolate Hugs. You can also get even more festive and use some of the holiday flavors that are in stores this time of year. If you need a recommendation, the peppermint ones are delicious!
Serve – These Christmas blossom cookies are perfect to enjoy with a mug of Gingerbread Hot Chocolate. They are so easy, you can make a batch for a Holiday Cookie Exchange or neighbor gifts.

Super curious where all the positive reviews are coming from? My cookies turned out absolutely terrible – flat, hard, gross flavor. I probably won’t even finish baking the rest of the dough. What a waste.
I love this recipe!! The most perfect Christmas cookies!
So easy and fun! My daughter loved rolling the dough in the sprinkles. 🙂
I love the variety!! They are so festive & so yummy! These will be going on all the goodie plates!
It may seem like common sense for some; but it would of been nice to know that you put the hershy kiss in the freezer. I had to read other recipes to figure that out. Important notes you may want to include.
I’ve neer put my kisses in the freezer, but now I am going to try this! Thanks for the suggestion!
How long can I store. Or how early can I make these and still have them nice and soft 🙂 thank you
I wouldn’t make them more than 2 days ahead of time if you want them nice and soft.
These are great! SO festive and easy! My family can’t wait for me to make these again!
These cookies are so festive and perfect treat for the holidays! The sugar cookie/Hershey kiss combo was perfection!
I just love that combo too!
My kids had a blast decorating these! They’re the perfect holiday cookies!!
These are some of my favorite Christmas cookies! They’re so easy and there are so many ways to decorate them. 🙂
I totally agree!
Why have I never thought to roll these cookies in sprinkles before? I love these cookies, they were so good (I use BC mix all the time) and so pretty! I love it!
Can I add some mini chocolate chips in the dough then roll it up and bake?
I’ve never tried it, but it sounds delicious! If it works for you, please let me know! I’d love to try it!
