Christmas Gooey Butter Cookies Recipe
As far as I am concerned, you really can’t go wrong with a recipe that is so simple to make, especially during the busy holiday season.
Want to know another recipe I’m obsessed with making this Christmas? My easy chocolate chip banana bread.
I make this bread as a gift to my friends because they all love it so much.
Of course, it’s hard to pick a favorite when it comes to Christmas cookies. I adore these Christmas Gooey Butter Cookies, but I also love my Raspberry Almond Shortbread Cookies, Chocolate Crinkle Cookies, Snowball Cookies and my Soft Ginger Molasses Cookies.
See, I told you, difficult to choose just one! :)
I can tell you that I really tend to prefer soft and chewy Christmas cookies. It’s one of the reasons that I love this recipe so much. They are also a big favorite when I take them to holiday gatherings and parties.
People are always surprised when I tell them that I made these cookies using a cake mix!
