Find delicious holiday recipes, create a menu for Christmas dinner, and serve the perfect Christmas punch! We have you covered with recipes for elegant holiday appetizers, Christmas dinners, and more. If you're expecting a lot of guests this holiday, our Christmas casserole recipes feed a crowd and feature festive seasonal ingredients. It can be a busy time of year, so our make-ahead side dishes work great as low-key Christmas recipe ideas. But when it comes to Christmas cooking, we like to skip right to dessert. Our Christmas cookies are some of the most popular recipes on our site, and they don't disappoint. Gingerbread cookies, thumbprint cookies, and sugar cookies all make the cut. Or start a new tradition with our Christmas candy recipes and look to our Christmas pies or holiday cakes for your next party. It's also a great time of year to pair a special drink with your dinner or desserts. Our festive holiday drink recipes include fabulous cocktails and punch ideas that will keep guests mingling.
Sure, you could make just a big batch of Santa bellies for the Christmas cookie tray, but we love the idea of pairing them with cookies cut as the letter H for a special Ho Ho Ho sugar cookie cutout idea.
A homemade pistachio paste is the key element to the wonderful nutty flavor complementing the chocolate cookie. Of course, the pistachio coating adds even more to the flavor, while also adding a bit of crunch.
A tasty DIY food gift is the present everyone loves. We have fun food gift ideas for everyone on your list, including creamy chocolate truffles, Christmas cookies, hot sauce, flavored syrups, and more. And with our cute packaging ideas, these homemade edible gifts will be the prettiest gifts under the tree.
