Our family wanted to share our love of ganache-filled cupcakes, so we made them into cookies. Even better: we bake the cookies in muffin cups, fill with ganache, and get the best of both worlds!—Adela Srinivasan, Parker, Colorado
It's a tradition in our house to start baking Christmas cookies early in the season and try some new recipes every year. This nutty glazed melt-in-your-mouth cookie is one of my favorites.

I bake dozens of different kinds of Christmas cookies to give to family and friends. I came up with this recipe when I had leftover candy canes I wanted to use up. The snowballs are dipped in a white candy coating, then into crushed peppermint candy.
Covered in chopped nuts and drizzled with chocolate, these cookies are delicious and pretty, too. Everybody looks forward to munching on them during the holidays.

Dotted with cranberries, orange peel and vanilla chips, these cookies are so colorful and fun to eat. They look lovely on a dessert tray and would be a great addition to your Christmas cookie lineup.

"The smell of peanut butter and chocolate always brings my cookie-hungry family running to the kitchen," shares Pat Doerflinger from Centerview, Missouri. "The recipe is so quick and easy, I often stir up a batch while making dinner."
