Holiday Baking & Cookie Box Inspiration

Sugar cookie dough, rolled out and cut with various cookie cutters for holiday baking.

I’ve finished all my Christmas shopping (cue sighs of relief), and I’m moving on to Christmas movies, gift wrapping, and holiday baking this week. The kitchen smelled of toasted pecans and butter last night as I kicked off baking with Pecan Sandies from Ina Garten’s Foolproof. I knew Ina wouldn’t steer me wrong, and the recipe turned out perfectly. My cookies even looked like the one’s in her photo!

Cookie boxes have been showing up all over my Pinterest feed recently, and then Tieghan from Half Baked Harvest shared this stunner on Instagram. Lauren Conrad’s cookie box also came across my feed on Pinterest this week and looked like the perfect way to contain all the holiday baking I plan on doing.


Here’s what I’ll be baking this week:

hot chocolate cookies  //  salted milk chocolate & peanut butter blondies  //  santa claus cookies  //  butter cookies  //  my grandmama’s oatmeal cookies  //  my chocolate chip, cranberry, walnut cookies  //  peppermint bark cookies
