Plate of Spiced Christmas Cookies

I cannot believe that October has come and gone and we are already through the first week of November.

How does time travel so fast? We are 47 days away from Christmas and I’m not sure I can keep up.

What I can do, is get in the kitchen and bake and we have already begun a lot of our holiday baking.

This week is Christmas Cookies Week here on the blog, and a big group of food bloggers and myself are going to be posting Christmas Cookie recipes all week long.

Spiced Christmas Cookies

These Spiced Christmas cookies are a favorite that I’ve pretty much had since I was a child. They are perfect with a tall glass of milk or a hot cup of coffee or tea. 

The flavor just screams Christmas and your entire house will smell lovely as they bake.

Be sure and visit all week long for a new cookie recipe everyday and links to all of the other amazing cookies shared!

What’s in these Spiced Christmas Cookies?

The normal cookie ingredients, flour, sugar, eggs…

But these cookies are all about the spices and they include Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cloves and Ginger. The perfect combination for a Christmas Cookie.

Can I freeze Spiced Cookies?

Not after they are baked, I don’t recommend it.

You can, freeze the dough though.

I have made the dough up ahead and frozen it until ready to bake (we haven’t tried longer than 30 days) and it seems to bake up just fine as long as you let it thaw all the way ahead of time.

How should I store them?

We store ours about 7-10 days in an airtight container, but they don’t usually last that long.

I don’t recommend storing these cookies in a cookie jar, as they tend to dry out and get hard a lot faster.

What I do recommend, is trying to eat one about 5-10 minutes after it comes out, while still warm. They are absolutely melt in your mouth delicious!

  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 ½ cups brown sugar packed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoons ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoons ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoons salt


  • In a large bowl, on medium speed beat the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Mix in the eggs, one at a time and then add the vanilla.
  • Be sure to scrape the sides of your bowl to incorporate everything.
  • In another bowl, whisk together all of the remaining dry ingredients.
  • Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture on low speed a little at a time, until all the ingredients are incorporated.
  • Roll the dough into 1" balls and place 2" apart on cookie sheet.
  • Using the bottom of a cup, or a fork, gently press down on the dough to spread it out a little. Keep the dough to at least 1/8" thickness but for the softest cookies, I recommend a little more.
  • Bake cookies at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes. Move to a cooling rack.
