Christmas Cookie Recipes: 20 Treats With Nuts And Fruit


For the next five weeks, the Huffington Post Canada's Living team will bring you delicious cookie recipes perfect for the holiday season. We're thinking sugary, chocolaty and frosted treats ideal for those holiday dinners and office shenanigans.

We may be dealing with some oatmeal and raisin haters this week, but we're really encouraging readers to give these nut and fruit cookies a chance! This week we went with non-traditional Christmas cookies — minus the few cranberry options — and stuck with an array of walnuts, dried-up fruit and flavoured glazes. There's even a fruitcake cookie in there.

Last week we rounded up 20 of our favourite sugar cookie recipes. Stay tuned next week for something with even more sugar.

Check out the third batch of 20 below and leave your favourite holiday cookie recipes in the comments below:
