Nothing. Nothing at all.
Tips for Making Old Fashioned Christmas Cookies
I have adopted a new motto this season, simple is better.
These cookies make about 5 dozen, so I made all my cookies then I put about 3-4 dozen in the freezer to use to decorate cookies once we get closer to Christmas with our kids.
I also opted to just do drop cookies this year, no cut outs of various Christmas shapes. Simple.
If you want to be sure to get the right candy to top these, this is what I use, Christmas Sixlets Mini Milk Chocolate Balls 1LB Bag.

How do you make Old Fashioned Christmas Cookies?
I am already planning our cookie decorating day, but it will be simple.
I’m going to buy store bought icings and toppings then just let my son go to town and be there right with him, joining in on the fun.
Sometimes, I get far too busy in the details of making it this amazing ‘pinterest’ style decorating party and forget that the only thing my kids are going to remember is if I was fully there or if I was too busy taking pictures to post on social media.
Guilty as charged. I am working hard at realizing that I need to be fully present.
The first step, cookies.
These cookies look beautiful, right?
I love how simple they look and how easy they were to make. I simply, whipped up the cookies as drop cookies.
Then, I made homemade whipped cream and topped them with whipped cream and Sixlets. Have you all purchased the holiday Sixlets?

Old Fashioned Christmas Cookies
Old Fashioned Christmas Cookies are the perfect choice for the holiday season. This is our go-to recipe for cut-out Christmas cookies too!
- 1 Cup Butter Softened
- 2 Cups Sugar
- 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar Packed
- 2 Eggs
- 1/4 Cup plus 2 Tbsp Milk
- 2 Tsp Vanilla
- 4 Cups All Purpose Flour or Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
- 2 Tsp Baking Powder
- 1/2 Tsp Salt
- 1/2 Pint Heavy Whipping Cream
- 4 Tbsp Powdered Sugar
- 1/4 Tsp Vanilla
Begin by creaming the butter, adding in the sugars, eggs, milk, and vanilla.
Add in the flour, baking powder, and salt, mixing well.
Chill the cookie dough in the fridge for 1-2 hours.
Preheat the Oven to 350*.
Drop tablespoon size rolled balls of dough on a greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
Bake for 10-12 minutes then remove from oven and let cool before moving to a wire rack to complete cooling.
Once cookies are completely cooled. Whip together the whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Put it in a cake decorating bag with the 1M Wilton tip. Top the cookies with the whipped cream then add the candies and sprinkles.
Keep them in the fridge until ready to serve to avoid the whipped cream from melting.
