Christmas Cookie DrinkThe Five Layer Christmas Cookie is a drink rich with flavor. Tones of molasses from the dark rum blend with the gingerbread, hazelnut, and Irish cream to build a very complex palate. This drink reminds me of shortbread and gingerbread. If this particular Christmas Cookie drink recipe sounds good, you should also take a look at the Seven Layer Christmas Cookie.

A Brief History of Christmas Cookies

History of Christmas CookiesSweet cookie-like treats date back at least as far as the seventh century in Persia. Christmas cookies seem to have become a tradition in Europe in the early 1500s. In Germany, lebkuchen (biscuits made with cardamon, allspice, nutmeg, ginger, and nuts) was baked as early as 1296. In Norway, krumkake (a thin, pressed, rolled cookie made on waffle irons) has been the holiday cookie of choice for centuries. Sweden featured a ginger snap-like cookie called pepparkakor. The mass production of Christmas cookies spread everywhere in the late 1800s as cookie cutters became a common kitchen utensil.
