The holiday season is full of tradition – from religious celebrations, to family gatherings to creative activities – and the familiarity and ritual aspect is part of why I love it so much. It’s comforting, particularly as part of a military family that has celebrated ten Christmases in seven different places.

One holiday tradition I truly enjoy is a good Cookie Swap! Of course, the benefit of the Cookie Swap is getting to sample a huge variety of delicious cookies and treats without the trouble of baking each one. Even if you’re an expert in the kitchen, this can be a little intimidating because you want to impress. Never fear, we’ve gathered 25 delicious cookie recipes that are perfect for a holiday Cookie Swap.
