This cookie box is full of amazing cookies that you'll be making over and over again during the Christmas season. From classic linzer cookies, shortbread, and gingerbread cookies to lemon ricotta cookies and struffoli, you'll love every single one of these cookie recipes!
Tis the season to make cookies! I feel that cookies are synonymous with Christmas - there's so much baking going on at this time of year, and I love it!
I recently got together with my best Instagram friends who also happen to be amazing bakers, and we put together this Christmas cookie box.
You can make just one recipe from the cookie box, or make them all and put together your own cookie box! The possibilities are endless. This cookie box would even work well as a gift or hostess gift for any sweet tooth lover in your life.
Now, I know what you're thinking, "I can't make all these cookies! It will take too much time!" Sure you can, you don't have to make them all at once! Many of these cookies will freeze beautifully, so just make them in advance when you have time, and pull them out of the freezer when it's time to assemble the cookie box.
So, are you wondering what all these glorious cookies are? I've listed their names and linked to their recipes below:

FAQs About the Cookie Box:
How Do I Make a Cookie Box?
It's so easy! First, get a box that will hold all the cookies (more detail on that in the next question). Then make your desired cookies. The number of cookies you make will depend on the size of box you have. We made 9 types of cookies for a box that is approximately 8x12 inches.
Once you've made your cookies, assemble them in the box. You will only need a few cookies per type. We tried to put any tall cookies at the back of the box, and tried to not place any cookies that were similar in colour next to each other. Once we were happy with the placement of our cookies in the box, we added some eucalyptus leaves, Christmas berries, and babies breath all over to add a floral touch. That's it! Cookie box completed.
Where Can I Buy The Box?
I'll let you in on a little secret. We used a wooden cutlery tray (similar to this one), as the cookie box. You can get these online, or at stores like HomeSense or Home Goods. It's the perfect size, isn't too expensive and functions just as it needs to!
Can I Make The Cookies for the Cookie Box in Advance?
Of course! In fact, I recommend it. The cookies that will freeze especially well are the linzer cookies, the shortbreads, and the lemon ricotta cookies.
