Over the past few Fridays, I have been sharing ways to save money this season, while the rest of the world breaks the bank!  Today’s Financially Savvy holiday savings tip? Bake It, Don’t Buy It.  For many people on your holiday list, baked goods make an excellent Christmas gift.  And to help inspire you, we have 50+ Holiday Cookies on this week’s Christmas Cookie-themed It’s Friday, We’re in Love!

50+ Holiday Cookies on It's Friday We're In Love

50+ Holiday Cookies

So many great cookie recipes were shared to our permanent link-up, it was hard to choose which ones to feature.  I’m featuring three types of cookies: traditional with a twist, sweet treats and works of art!  But be sure to scroll all the way to the end to see even more awesome holiday cookies!

Traditional Cookies with a Twist

These recipes make a great option for cookie exchanges, or packaging a dozen at a time to give as gifts to teachers, neighbors and friends.
