Christmas Cookie Week 2014: Final Cookie Round-Up!

Christmas Cookie Week 2014: Final Cookie Round-Up! // The Speckled Palate

Christmas Cookie Week flew by in the blink of an eye, and I cannot believe it’s already time for this year’s recipe round-up.

It was an incredible week — the biggest Christmas Cookie Week to date! — and I am so pleased with the turnout. It’s truly amazing to see so many bloggers coming together to all create something similar at the same time. Not to get all sappy on y’all, but my heart is full from the turnout, the stunning cookies presented and the new blogger friends made.

For those of you who are curious, here’s a little breakdown of some tidbits I found interesting about this year’s Christmas Cookie Week:

  • Thirty-four total recipes were submitted during the week by 20 total bloggers from various countries and three separate continents. (!!!)
  • The most popular ingredients were chocolate and peanut butter. (Is anyone really surprised?)
  • There were several gluten free and food allergy-friendly recipes shared, too!

… And without further ado, here are all the gorgeous recipes and the bloggers who whipped them up in celebration of Christmas Cookie Week. Feel free to visit all of these blog friends — new and old — and leave them some love on their posts… and then bake their cookies because they ALL look delicious!

What was your favorite recipe created during this year’s Christmas Cookie Week? Which recipes do you want to make immediately?


  1. Jayne | Tenacious Tinkering

    Eeeee… so excited to see so many cookie recipes. How can I choose a favourite? Your Peppermint Brownie Cookies are super tempting. The White Chocolate Cranberry Brown Butter Bars look amazing. And then there’s Cookie Pie. Ugh. Give me everything. Thanks for being the loveliest, most gracious host! I’ve enjoyed this so much. Count me in next year. And the year after 😉 I bet it’ll be even more exciting with Lady Baby coming along.

    What fun to be part of this! I already have several of yours bookmarked to try, and those peppermint mocha icebox cookies are calling my name too. Love the beverage pairings post too – I did a cupcake and beer/wine pairing party over the summer and it was such a hit. Of course I should try it with cookies too!

    I don’t know if it’s possible to “win” a cookie exchange, but Feast+West’s No Bake Avalanche Cookies sure earned me some cookie love this past weekend! It was really hard to choose, so obviously I’ll have to make some more cookies this weekend. You know, for research.
