Christmas Cookie Box

Hello everyone! Here is the blog post with my Christmas Cookie Box of 2019!

This year’s spread is fantastic, if I do say so myself!

Christmas Cookie Box

It took me a full week to make all the recipes for this box!

That’s right one full week! Luckily, when it comes to cookies, a lot can be made ahead! And that’s how I was able to pull off this stunning Christmas Cookie Box!

Now, let’s get to the deets!

Christmas Cookie Box

My favorite from the box has to be the Alfajor Cookies, but that’s because Alfajores are my absolute favorite ever, of all times, so it’s not even fair to include it in the debate. So I will say what my second favorite was: the Nutella Macarons!

Nutella Macarons

The Nutella Macarons are perfect for making ahead, since macarons freeze so well, and keep in the refrigerator for a good amount of time. Actually, macarons are better if served 24-48 hours after maturing in the fridge. Both the texture, and the flavor improve after the macaron has set in the fridge for at least 1 day.

How could I not include you in the box, my beloved Alfajores? On my last year’s box, I have also included Alfajores. I make these cookies for every special occasion. They are buttery, soft cornstarch cookie sandwiches, filled with dulce de leche! What more can I say!

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Jumbo Thick Chocolate Chip Cookies

I used the recipe for my Jumbo Chocolate Chip Cookies here, just made them smaller so they wouldn’t be too big for the Christmas Cookie box. Even in a smaller size, they are still the chewiest, softest cookie I’ve ever made! And the dough can be made ahead and frozen to be baked at any time!

Orange Cranberry Macarons

These Cranberry Macarons are filled with Orange Buttercream and Cranberry Sauce! They are perfect for this time of the year! Such festive Macarons!

Coconut Fudge Truffles

These Coconut Fudge Truffles are my favorite brazilian treat! Very easy to make, only 3 ingredients, and can be frozen for up to 2 months! Perfect for parties, holidays, and of course, to be included in your Christmas Cookie Box!

Passion Fruit Linzer Cookies

I always like to include a Linzer cookie in my Christmas Cookie Box, and the choice this year was Passion Fruit. Scroll down below to see what was my choice the year before. The dough can be made ahead and frozen, also, to make it easier when it comes time to assemble your cookie box! And passion fruit pulp can easily be found online, or in the frozen food aisle at most grocery stores! Passion fruit is aromatic, tangy, and perfect for desserts!

Eggnog Macarons

These Eggnog Macarons are probably the most Christmassy cookie of this whole Christmas Cookie Box! Also perfect for making ahead of time, since they freeze so beautifully! And you know what the best part is? When you freeze macarons, you don’t have to thaw them overnight, or anything, before serving. Just 30 minutes on the counter, or 1 hour in the fridge should do the job to make the macaron ready to be served!

Orange Pistachio Shortbread

And last but not least, we have the delicious Orange Pistachio Shortbread Cookies. These were actually one of the first cookies I ever published here on the blog, almost 2 years ago! I simply adore the zesty orange combination with the buttery sweet pistachio shortbread! Fantastic!

For the meringue kisses, I used a variation of Bakerella’s recipe.

And for the sugared cranberries, you can find an easy video I made to show you how to make them here.

So, what did you think about this Christmas Cookie Box?

Here is the box I made last year, 2018.

Back then I didn’t publish all the recipes that went in the box, but I had published the recipes for the Pecan Macarons and the Gingerbread Fudge Linzers.

And since we are talking about Christmas Cookie Boxes, here is the box I made in 2017, much simpler, and no recipes went to the blog, since I was still trying to get a groove of everything!

Anyway, I hope you loved this year’s Christmas Cookie Box! Hope I could inspire you in your cookie box adventures somehow!

    1. the little boxes are just boxes I had at home, like boxes from food coloring, a box from these little saucers I had. I just looked for what I had around.

  1. I’ve seen these boxes and they’re beautiful, but I’ve always wondered if the cookies go stale or do you wrap the whole thing to prevent that?

    1. I just put them in the boxes to take the pics. I keep them in air tight containers, and the cookies that need to go in the fridge will be kept in the fridge, and the cookies that keep at room temp ill leave them on the counter inside a container.

  2. Hi! Just wondering what you use to separate the different cookies? Everything looks beyond amazing!!!
