Almost any kind of cookie is delicious, but Christmas cookies hold a special place on the totem pole. Maybe it's the bits of Christmas spirit sprinkled into them that makes them so yummy. Or the fact that Christmas music is blasting and you have Christmas tree #views as you’re baking. They always turn out so decorative, making them more than worthy than an Instagram post (or two). Christmas cookie Instagram captions may not go in the oven, but they have to be pretty lit and sparkle more than those sprinkles you go heavy on.

Baking cookies for the holidays is so much fun, and you want your pics to speak volumes about how eventful the moment was. It's the one time of year where you don't look absolutely mad going overboard with the red and green sprinkles on everything. Yeah, it's that serious in the kitchen throughout the holiday season, and that means posting what all your hard work was for. Make sure this is before you take a few bites of your crumbly, cute creations, though.

You can even incorporate what was going on around you when you were baking. Did you use Mom's favorite recipe? Did Grandma actually let you take the reins, or did you make the frosting from scratch? All of this is perfect inspiration for you to deliver an amazing Instagram post to your followers. Let your cookies sparkle, but use your caption to show how Christmas cookies aren't just some sweet treats during the holiday season — they're a lifestyle.
