Holiday Cookies! And the Perfect Books to Go With Them

By Julia Bergen

Everyone loves cookies. Everyone loves books. Thus everyone will love these book and cookie pairings. Our logic is undeniable.

Snowflake Sugar Cookies!

Recommendation: Ice Dragon by George R. R. Martin

About a girl who loves the snow and the cold, and a dragon who breathes deadly ice. Who doesn’t want to feel like a dragon while eating cookies?

Thumbprint Cookies!

Recommendation: To Catch a Killer by Sheryl Scarborough

The main character is a teen sleuth who carries a fingerprint kit in her makeup bag. Thumb prints can be incriminating or delicious. Sometimes both.

Hostess Snowballs!

Recommendation: Vassa in the Night by Sarah Porter

Only sort of a cookie, but while reading a book about a girl stuck in a monstrous convenience store, eating something homemade would just feel wrong.


Recommendation: Heartless by Marissa Meyer

Honestly, this book makes me want to eat all of the baked things, since the main character’s dream is to open her own bakery. The only cookies she makes are rose macarons, but you could also pair this with lemon crinkle cookies since in the opening scene she makes lemon tarts that sound like the most delicious things ever.

Jim Dandy Cookies!

Recommendation: My New Crush Gave to Me by Shani Petroff

The main character and her friend make old fashioned Jim Dandy cookies to win her crush’s heart in a Secret Santa matchmaking plan. This book is full of Christmas cookies since the main character and her best friend are trying to start a baking business, so eating ALL THE COOKIES is also appropriate.


Recommendation: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

The Grishaverse was inspired by Russian culture, so these traditional Russian Christmas cookies are perfect!
