The 20 Best Christmas Cookies
Raspberry-Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies
These cookies taste decadent, yet are made with ingredients that have healthful benefits: oats, almonds, fruit and chocolate. The thumbprints are versatile as well—use a different type of filling or different extracts to create a completely different cookie.

It’s quick and easy to mix together these slice-and-bake almond-coconut cookies whenever you need something sweet. Bake half and put the other half in the freezer, so you are ready to pull out and bake up a few fresh cookies anytime.

Fig 'N' Flax Thumbprint Cookies
We love how the ground flax adds a nutty flavor and the brown sugar caramelizes on the outside of these thumbprint cookies. Fig preserves make this cookie special; other fruit preserves could be used as well.
