Along with hot chocolate, Christmas lights, and Hallmark movies, Christmas cookies are among my favorite things during the holidays. Finding fantastic vegan Christmas cookies is like opening a big box with a shiny bow on Christmas morning. I get giddy like a little kid!
The Christmas cookies I love have to be homemade, not the kind you get in the box from the store. My favorite part is inviting the kids in the kitchen with me. We make a huge mess, but we end up with some pretty amazing treats that my boys are excited to share.
I make Christmas cookies to give as a hostess gift when I go to a holiday party. I also make them to drop off to our neighbors, friends, and colleagues as a way of spreading Christmas cheer. But the ultimate fun when it comes to Christmas cookies for me is the traditional cookie exchange.
Most traditional cookies that are exchanged aren’t vegan or gluten-free, but I love the cookie exchange because I get to show off how amazing and delicious vegan Christmas cookies can be. It’s my way of impressing my friends and family. I also always include a recipe card so they can make them again at home.
If you’re vegan and attending a cookie exchange, you might not be able to eat all of the cookies unless it’s a strictly vegan cookie exchange, but you can bring a fantastic cookie that’s going to make your friends swoon.
I’ve collected 24 of the most delicious and surprisingly vegan versions of classic Christmas cookies along with some new and inventive cookies to try from the very best vegan food bloggers. These cookies are sure to impress at your next cookie exchange or fill Santa’s belly with some vegan goodness.
