Top 5 Reasons Why Cookies Are the BEST Holiday Tradition


It’s December again, and across the world people from all cultures are celebrating the holiday season with a sweet treat! In America, whether you’re celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or another spiritual holiday around the winter solstice, the popular dessert of choice is cookies! So bakers, it’s time to get out your mixers, rolling pins, and cookie cutters—because baking cookies is a tradition you won’t want to miss.


1. Spend Quality Time Baking Holiday Cookies

Cookies are easy and fun to make together as a family! ’Tis the season of giving, so why not spend time with your loved ones baking some delicious homemade cookies for everyone to share? You can even split yourselves into teams: some of you can bake, while others can decorate! Get out the frosting and sprinkles for the kids to decorate their own cookie cutouts while you make the next batch. Plus, we’ve got you covered if you run out of cookie decorating ideas and need some inspiration.

2. Cookies Spread Happiness & Cheer

There’s no such thing as too many cookies. Leftover cookies are a fabulous addition to any holiday party! We’ve got the best tips for putting together your own festive cookie bouquet fit for Santa himself. If you’re not one for baking, it’s just as easy to wish someone a “Happy Holiday” by ordering a holiday cookie bouquet, tin, box, or basket as a gift for a neighbor, coworker, or friend.

3. Mix & Match Your Favorite Variety of Cookies

Another cookie advantage? You can bake large quantities of cookies all at once to share with larger groups.

5. Try Tasty New Holiday Cookie Recipes

Holiday cookies are a standard practice in many countries, just with their own unique cultural twist! For example, Hanukkah cookie traditions include sweet fried latkes and poppyseed pastry cookies, whereas those celebrating Kwanzaa enjoy sesame cookies called benne wafers. Even Christmas sugar cookies have become a staple in the U.S. thanks to European influence from German immigrants. It’s fun to share new recipes and try different types of cookies from others’ traditions to fully immerse ourselves in the holiday spirit!

After all, that’s what sharing a cookie bouquet is all about! Whatever occasion you may be commemorating this holiday season, we hope that peace, joy, love, and cookies are part of your tradition as you celebrate with your friends and family. Happy holidays!
