A simple collection of some of the most popular Newfoundland Christmas cookie recipes from my childhood in Newfoundland.
Classic Newfoundland Christmas Cookies.
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.
Plus you’ll see daily recipe suggestions from decadent desserts to quick delicious weekday meals too.
You can also sign up for our FREE newsletter to know immediately when we add new recipes. You’ll also get weekly suggestions for great family friendly meals and desserts too!

I just LOVE to bake! But now there are just the 2 of us and my husband is a picky picky eater so there is a lot of things he does NOT eat and won't even try! Most of my family stretch from Thunder Bay, Ontario to Fort St. John, British Columbia! All or most of the grandkids and great grandkids I have never physically met to hold in my arms! Some know me very little that they are very very shy on the one or two occasions we have met! Now that I am 70 I will not be meeting any of them I am sure! BUT~~I still do Love Them and their parents! I have taught some of them how to cook and bake and so did my Mother teach them! We are great cooks and great bakers! This site is such a blessing and has given me such a lift and a great hunger for food and the need to cook and bake! Problem is I would have to eat it ALL! LOL

I came across your because I have been trying to find a very old recipe (I have war cake recipe past down from Mom). This recipe she called Newfoundland Cake, would you have any idea where I could find a copy of this recipe? I would greatly appreciate your help.
