I used to make cookie trays for the holidays and even huge baskets for each of my husband's co-workers. I spent weeks making all of the different cookies and peeps loved them.
I stopped doing this years ago when I started eating healthier as I was not looking to have the temptation in front of me but my family missed having a cookie tray at Christmas. So the last few years I have started this tradition again.
What I love about these recipes is that they are clean, easy to make and do not make a ton of cookies. There are usually a dozen to 2 dozen per recipe. This is a great way to limit the amount of sweets in the house and yet allow for the special treat. Here are my 6 favorites.
