14 Wine Pairings for Christmas Cookies

Milk and cookies are child's play. How about pairing your favorite Christmas cookies with wine? Now, that is a treat even Santa would approve.

You may be surprised to know that Christmas cookies pair well with a range of wines - from bold Merlot and bubbly Prosecco to sweet Riesling and fruity Syrah. So why limit yourself to just dessert wines?

Here are some spectacular wines to pair with Christmas cookies

BUTTER COOKIES AND CHARDONNAY

Traditional butter cookies are scrumptious on their own but pairing them with a Chardonnay will bring out their butteriness. The hints of vanilla in the wine make this pairing a winner.

WHOOPIE PIES AND MALBEC

Another surprising pairing are whoopie pies and Malbec. This smooth and rich Argentinian wine stands up to the decadence of the cookie's chocolate and cream.

SNOWBALL COOKIES AND PINOT GRIGIO

Italian pinot grigio brings out the delicate almond flavor in buttery snowball cookies, also known as Mexican wedding cakes.

SHORTBREAD COOKIES AND CHAMPAGNE

Do you love champagne? Then reach for shortbread cookies during the holiday. Bubbly pairs nicely with the texture of these irresistible cookies.
