What Holiday Cookie You'd Be, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

What Holiday Cookie You’d Be, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

It’s that time of year again! Temperatures are dropping, hot cocoa is being poured and covered with marshmallows, and we’re getting our coziest blankets out for nights spent watching holiday movies. The only thing that’s missing is a platter filled with holiday cookies. (Our stomachs are rumbling just thinking about it.) With this in mind, and for a bit of fun, we decided to ask ourselves: What holiday cookie would we be, based on our zodiac sign?

Though zodiac signs can be utilized for more serious introspection when it comes to who you are and what you’re meant to do, we can also have fun with them. These signs can tell us what cupcake we’d be, what fast food French fry is our crispy soulmate, and they can even help us figure out our perfect mac and cheese pairing. What more could you ask for?

Now, let’s talk holiday cookies…


Sign: Aries

This traditional German treat contains a kick (in the form of ginger, spice, and everything nice), making us immediately think of the fiery passion within an Aries. Pair this cookie with some spiced cider for the ultimate Aries-inspired holiday.

Mexican Wedding Cookies

Sign: Taurus

A sweet walnut cookie (also known as Russian tea cakes or Snowballs) covered in powdered sugar sounds like a seriously luxurious, melt-in-your-mouth dessert. Are you drooling yet, Taurus? Because these babies are the definition of decadence.

Eggnog Cookies

Sign: Gemini

Eggnog is hit or miss for many people, which might make one afraid to give these cookies a try. However, with your adaptable, curious nature, Gemini, these are sure to be on your cookie plate. Give them a try — you’re no stranger to the path less travelled!

Glazed Sugar Cookies

Sign: Cancer

These cookies scream nostalgia, reminding us of falling snow, cozy nights by the fire, and warm cups of cocoa. They may be hard on the outside (much like a Cancer crab’s shell), but they’re all soft and sweet inside. Remind you of anyone?

Peppermint Pinwheels

Sign: Leo

Peppermint is quite the showstopper, especially when it’s contained in a bright red pinwheel cookie. You can’t help but stop and stare at these beauties, which a Leo wouldn’t mind one bit. This sign is born to be in the spotlight, after all.

Love what you’re seeing? Here’s some more cookie inspo:

Almond Cookies

Sign: Virgo

This traditional Chinese cookie symbolizes good fortune during the Chinese New Year. It’s also a simple, crisp, buttery staple you can’t go wrong with, which sounds like a dessert that was made specifically for a Virgo.

Linzer Cookies

Sign: Libra

This Austrian cookie is the perfect balance of multiple flavors — it features two shortbread cookies sandwiched together with jam. The best part? The jam peeks out of the top half of the sandwich, which typically showcases an eye-catching cutout that any Libra would love.

Chocolate Pepper Cookies

Sign: Scorpio

Time for some fire! This South African cookie gets an unexpected kick from ground pepper, which reminds us of the equally powerful kick of passion contained within a Scorpio. Together, this sign and cookie represent something that’s both delicious and even a little bit deceiving.


Sign: Sagittarius

Don’t have enough money to travel far, far away this holiday season? Take a bite of these dulce de leche sandwich cookies and be transported straight to South America. They’re also ideal for an independent soul who wants to stay away from the traditional shortbread holiday spread.


Sign: Capricorn

This sweet pastry cookie filled with nuts is a traditional Jewish treat that you can’t go wrong with. And if anyone knows the importance of tradition and sticking to what works best, it’s Capricorn. Why fix what isn’t broken?

Cranberry White Chocolate Biscotti

Sign: Aquarius

If someone were to come up with a cookie that looks like it belongs on another planet, it would be you, Aquarius. Plus, combining cranberry and white chocolate for an innovative holiday treat is something straight out of this sign’s imagination.

Gingerbread Men

Sign: Pisces

The friendliest cookie out there has to be paired with a sign who’s known for being good-natured and kind. Fortunately, to tap into this sign’s imagination, you can also get super creative with your gingerbread man, giving them some seriously colorful and crazy designs.
