Print This Post Print This Post

Have you started baking your holiday cookies yet? It’s interesting to find out about other people’s holiday cookie traditions. Some people make just one type of cookie en masse each year. Some people make a variety and hand out bags of assorted cookies. Others decide to try something new each year. Whatever your style, it’s great to find a super easy homemade cookie recipe that you can rely on.

In this spirit, RecipeChatter is releasing a brand new eCookbook, 15 Homemade Cookie Recipes! These cookie recipes were developed by our editorial staff. We had a lot of fun developing these cookie recipes. We even had a cookie exchange so we could try them all! My bag was devoured in about two days. Cookie Monster is my cousin.

No Bake Oreo Balls


No-Bake Oreo Balls

Yields 16 cookies


  • ½ bag of Ghirardelli dark chocolate melting wafers
  • 2 sleeves (30 cookies) of  double-stuffed Oreo cookies
  • 1/2 bar of room temperature cream cheese
  • Sugar crystals/sprinkles (for topping)

Optional: Add mini York patties to center of balls.


  1. Crush Oreo cookies into a crumbly mixture. An easy method is to put them in a zip lock bag and crush them with a flat object.
  2. Mix cream cheese and crushed Oreos in a bowl.
  3. When you have a sticky, fully mixed cookie dough, scoop teaspoon-sized amounts of mixture and roll them into balls with your palms. Place on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper or wax paper.
  4. Put cookie balls in freezer for 20 minutes.
  5. When the 20 minutes are almost up, melt the dipping chocolate. Follow instructions on Ghirardelli dark chocolate melting wafers bag; you will melt the chocolate on your microwave’s defrost setting for a few minutes. Be careful not to burn the chocolate.
  6. When chocolate is melted, remove balls from freezer. One by one, dip balls into chocolate, rolling them to make sure they’re covered entirely.
  7. Sprinkle Oreo crumbs and sugar crystals/sprinkles on balls before the chocolate hardens.
  8. Serve and enjoy! For best results, keep refrigerated.

    My favorite cookies are Melting Moments. A shortbread/butter cookie that is flattened with a cookie stamp and decorated with colored sugar.

    My favorite kind of holiday cookie is cut-out sugar cookies, decorated with icing and all kinds of colored sprinkles, red hots, silver dragees and other cookie decorations.

  3. Rose says

    Norwegian Sandbakkels

    Sugary, almond, butter cookies pressed into crinkly tins/molds that look like muffin/cupcake paper cups.

    Cookies come out like little tart cups that reportedly can be filled with fruit or pie filling…I wouldn’t know, though… they never made it that far at our house! 😉

    I love oatmeal raisin cookies, any time of the year and especially at Christmas because most of the time most bakers don’t make them then.u

    I am a mom that loves to bake for my family and I love to try different recipes and I love to adapt them to lighter or diabetic versions for my friends and of course to give to the less fortunate. This cookbook would most definitely help.

    Peanut butter cooked in a mini muffin tin with a peanut butter cup placed in the middle when you take it out of the oven.

  11. Ismelda Maldonado says

    This is a hard one since I love cookies. I have adjusted a lot of cookies but I think I like the nutmeg noels. They are like a sugar cookies with nutmeg. They go great with coffee. I also love chocolate chips. There is something about a cookie when it comes out of the oven that taste so good. Yummmy.

  12. Rhonda says

    My favorite holiday cookie is a cherry wink. They have maraschino cherries, walnuts, and dates in the dough then rolled in crushed cornflakes with an additional 1/2 maraschino cherry on top for the wink. They have a crunch on the outside from the cornflakes and moist and tender on the inside from the dates and cherries.Mmmmm

  13. Debbie says

    My favorite Christmas cookie is the “Snowball Cookie”, or also known as “Sandies”. I can’t eat just one. I look forward to them every year!
