Vintage cookie recipes for Christmas! The last time I brought your Vintage Pie recipes for the holidays (or anytime) but it just wouldn’t be Christmas without some of these amazing vintage cookie recipes! If your family is like mine you have a few standards that have graced holiday dinners for as long as you can remember. Maybe they’re secret recipes that you can’t share or maybe everyone on the block is now making your great-great-grandmother’s favorite vintage bake. Either way vintage cookie recipes should be kept and made for generations to come. You know how important I think cooking from scratch is, and baking is at the top of that list during the Christmas season.
The best part of making these yummy cookies is it can be a family event. My daughters and I can spend a day baking and the youngest loves to bring a plate to the neighbors.
I hope you find a vintage cookie recipes that you can incorporate into your holiday celebrations this year!
