Easy Make-Ahead Christmas Cookies for Your Holiday Bash

Did you know that just about any holiday cookie can be made in advance? Talk about stress-free planning! Simply store the unbaked dough or freshly made cookies in air-tight containers for an entirely low-maintenance experience. If you’re storing your already-baked cookies, keep them stacked with parchment paper in between each layer for optimal storage. Just remember to let them thaw out overnight in the fridge before serving. From gingerbread and sugar cookies to shortbread and red velvet, these make-ahead recipes will get you one step closer to serving up baked goods that you too can enjoy with loved ones.
