Now that the tree is up and decorated, it’s time for one of our favorite things about the holidays: cookies! Some seasonal favorites are good enough to eat by the dozen, but others are still lingering on the plate long after the Christmas party ends. These are the holiday cookies no one really likes, but won’t admit it.

  • Jam thumbprints – Sure, they look festive, but haters say jam belongs on toast, not cookies.
  • Shortbread – Fine for a cup of tea, but they’re just a little weak for the Christmas cookie game.
  • Snowball cookies – These little powdered sugar-covered goodies are so pretty, but they’re messy and the crumbly, nutty center is kind of a letdown.
  • Cinnamon stars – A classic German cookie that’s lovely to look at but not sweet enough to hit the Christmas cookie bliss point.
  • Sugar cookie cutouts – Unless these are topped with frosting and candy, we’re not interested.

In fact, to make things easy for you, here’s a list of 56 holiday favorites! Some of these will be up there, but you can find 51 others that’ll be even better!
