We're getting down to crunch time before the holiday.  If you're running out of time to get the things down that you'd normally get done, here's one thing that you could skip if you had to.

Things get really hectic this time of year, and there's so much to do.  From buying gifts, to wrapping gifts, decorating, putting up the lights, and all the baking! It's tough to get it all done before the big day gets here.

There's no way to replace what your grandma can do and there are some traditions that just have to happen every year.  We're not suggesting you skip that recipe that you only get in your family.  But if you're running out of time to get it all done, if you needed to skip one thing, believe it or not, with the help of these bakeries, one thing you could definitely skip is baking cookies.

But where do you go to get cookies that will have your guests raving?  You don't want something stale and boring.  You want it to be as good (or even better...if that's possible) than what you remember from when you were a kid.

Word of mouth is huge when it comes to reviews of local bakeries and restaurants.  Everyone has their own opinion of what makes it great.  We can take them or leave them, but we should always listen to them.

Here are the top 10 bakeries that make Christmas cookies this time of year that will hopefully make people believe that you're the best baker in town.  Put them out for your guests...we won't tell....
