Christmas Cookie Crinkles are one of my favorite cookies to make and enjoy during the holidays! When I make and enjoy this delicious cookie it brings back a lot of childhood memories. Growing up my family would get together a couple weeks before Christmas and have a baking day at my grandma's house.
All my aunts, girl cousins, my mom and would spend all day making so many different cookies, buckeyes and any other dessert treat you could think of. My grandmother has passed away but the tradition of getting together baking cookies still happens to this day, just now takes place at my mother's house.
My sister in law and all the kids come and we bake all different things. We make sugar and gingerbread cookies ahead of time for the kids to decorate. It's a tradition we hope to continue for many more generations to come!
Be sure to try this soft and chewy Christmas Cookie Crinkles this year! You only need a few ingredients! You can easily make these gluten free when you use a gluten free cake mix.
