A simple collection of some of the most popular Newfoundland Christmas cookie recipes from my childhood in Newfoundland.
It’s never a wrong time to start planning treats for the Holiday freezer.
Being a recipe blog from Newfoundland, one of the ways people often discover this website is by searching for Newfoundland Christmas cookie recipes. There is still a very well maintained tradition of almost marathon Christmas baking that occurs in the province at this time of year.
These days, while many family recipes may not have been passed down, my family’s have been quite well preserved, with many of them shared right here on Rock Recipes. Inevitably these days when people from this end of the country go looking for those childhood favourite Christmas treats online, they are bound to discover our growing collection of Christmas cookies.
There are actually about 200 cookie recipes to be found here now in our Cookie Category but without doubt, the most popular tend to fall in the category of Newfoundland favourites.
If you have a suggestion of one to add to this collection or want to share your own favourites from your childhood, feel free to let me know in the comments below.
Merry Christmas and Happy Baking! Be sure to check out our best NEWFOUNDLAND CHRISTMAS CAKES TOO!
Update December 2019.
Five years to the day since this collection was first posted, from some reader suggestions, we’ve expanded this collection of recipes to include a few more fan favourites.
