Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, I'm wasting no time moving on to the next holiday! For as long as I can remember, baking Christmas cookies and assembling cookie trays with my mom has been one of my favorite parts of the holiday season.
Of course, we have our favorite recipes that we include every year, but as I've gotten older, and during the years when I can't do all my holiday baking with my mom, I've started to branch out and include some new cookies in my trays each year.
Since there seems to be an endless supply of cookie recipes floating around the interwebs, I try to narrow my search a little bit by choosing a category. A couple of years ago I put together this Top 40 Gluten Free Christmas Cookies list while doing my search and this year I chose to focus on Vegan Christmas Cookies.
While I'm neither gluten-free, nor vegan, that doesn't mean I can't enjoy cookie recipes that fit into these categories. In fact, if I hadn't told you the recipes were vegan, I bet you wouldn't even have noticed!
So here are 12 Vegan Christmas Cookies that I'm thinking about trying this year!
