Christmas baking is always so exciting, but I find that I can never decide what to bake each year. If I had it my way, I'd make every single cookie known to man, but I have neither the time nor the money to do this. Instead, I try to find the cookies that best represent me and what I love about the holiday. Call me sappy, but it's true.
Then I got to thinking...I bet there's a cookie that suits everyone, we just don't know it yet! That's where your zodiac comes in. If you're having trouble figuring out what to make, then follow this handy guide that matches a cookie recipe to your best traits. Or just make them all...that's an option, too.
Aries - Chocolate Macaroons
As an Aries, you love being ambitious...but you also have very little patience. Since you're always on the go, you need something quick and easy. That's why you should make these chocolate macaroons. You don't have to bake them, and they're super easy to make! Oh, and they taste amazing, too.
Taurus - Shortbread
You're very dependable and practical, just like a shortbread cookie. They're sturdy, classic, and everyone loves them. You can't go wrong bringing a plate of shortbread cookies to your holiday party, and everyone will be thankful you did.
Gemini - Chocolate Peppermint Kisses
Geminis love to be affectionate, and what better way to show that than wth a kiss? Inside these chocolate cookies, there's a Hershey's candy cane kiss. Chocolate, peppermint, and kisses? That sounds like a Gemini to me.
Cancer - Salted Caramel Shortbread Cookies
Cancers are hard, because they work based off of emotion, and it's hard to find an emotional cookie. But something that stirs up a lot of emotion for people is salted caramel; they either love it or hate it. Salted caramel shortbread cookies will definitely be a conversation starter, which is never a bad thing over the holidays!
Leo - Chocolate Peppermint Pinwheels
A Leo is nothing if not bold and ambitious, which is exactly what these chocolate peppermint pinwheel cookies are! They require an adventurous spirit to get the spiral just right, but a Leo should have no problem with that.
Virgo - Sugar Cookies
Sugar cookies are graceful and delicate, just like Virgos. They require a gentle touch when making them, and their flavor is subtle but sweet. Any Virgo will tell you they are meticulous when it comes to detail, which can come in handy if you decide to decorate the cookies.
Libra - Gingerbread Cookies
An artistic soul requires an artistic cookie. Gingerbread require an artistic touch when being decorated, and also require a high level of intelligence if you're going to build any sort of structure out of the classic cookie.
Scorpio - Red Velvet Oreo Cheesecake Cookies
Scorpios are naturally seductive, and who can resist a red velvet cookie stuffed with Oreo cheesecake? They're festive and fun, and definitely delicious. And seeing as how Scorpios are so independent...no one will judge if you eat the entire tray.
Sagittarius - Cookie Dough Sandwich Cookies
As a Sagittarius, you always love getting creative, and the baking is no exception. These cookie dough sandwich cookies are an adventurous way to experiment in the kitchen, but still keeping those classic comfort flavors of the holidays. The best part is the cookie dough filling doesn't have any eggs, so it's totally safe!
Capricorn - Jam-Filled Cookies
A Capricorn is always detail-oriented, so these jam cookies that require precision cutting are perfect. Making sure the tops and bottoms are the same size, keeping the jam-to-cookie ration perfect, and cutting out the perfect shape on the cookie are all important steps to a perfect Christmas cookie.
Aquarius - Lemon Snowballs
Oh, Aquariuses. You're always trying to push the envelope. You could make the argument that lemon is not a holiday flavor, but as an Aquarius, you don't care. Lemon snowballs at least look festive, even if they're not the flavor everyone is expecting.
Pisces - Snickerdoodles
A classic cookie for a classic sign. As a Pisces, you're soft-spoken and don't like to rock the boat. The snickerdoodle gives a classic holiday flavor that everyone loves, without being too flashy or complicated. Perfect!
