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, many family recipes may not have been passed down. However, my family’s have been quite well preserved, with many of them shared right here on Rock Recipes.

Inevitably these days people from this end of the country go looking for those childhood favourite Christmas treats online. Then, 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.
