Free Printable Holiday Recipe Cards

Do you find yourself returning to the same holiday recipes year after year or do you like to experiment and try new ones?

While Christmas dinner is pretty much set in stone, I do find that I like to do a mix of new and old when it comes to holiday baking.

As much as I love my grandma's old family recipe for Sour Cream Cookies, I'm also loving the Chewy Chocolate Chunk Gingerbread Cookies that I tried recently. And Christmas morning breakfast always lends a chance to try out something a little different than the previous years.

There are so many different places to find recipes - magazines, books, blogs, friends and family. And as a result, we each seem to acquire quite a collection of handwritten cards, ripped out pages, and printed pieces of paper just waiting to be tried or used again.

If you're anything like me, most things in that collection don't seem to ever make it past the waiting stage because I either forget about them or can't find the recipe when the time comes.

This year, I decided it was time to organize my own stash of saved ideas and create some pretty printable Christmas recipe cards to record what I plan on making this holiday season.

It is so nice to have everything stored in one place on matching cards for my upcoming baking. And it becomes very easy to sort through the cards making a list of ingredients that need to be purchased before all the mixing begins.

This seemed like the perfect thing to then share with you so that you too could get things prepared for the upcoming season filled with dinners, parties, baking, and more.

What Can I Do With These Printable Recipe Cards

  • Obviously, the first thing you can do is simply write out the recipes that you intend to use for the upcoming holiday season. Any cookies you want to try, your plans for breakfast and dinner, and maybe a festive cake or pie recipe for dessert.

  • If you are especially energetic, you could start now organizing all the other Christmas recipes you have saved over the years. Put them in a special section of your recipe card box or grab an albumn an insert the cards to create your own personal Christmas binder.

  • It can be helpful to keep a small stack in a convenient place to write down recipes that people ask you for over the holidays. When someone asks for the recipe for a new dish I've prepared and shared, it is nice to be able to grab the special looking holiday card to give them over just an ordinary index card or sheet of tablet paper.

  • These cards could also be printed and cut out to wrap up with some baker's twine and give as a thoughtful gift to friends and family who enjoy spending time in the kitchen. There are always people who pop up on our shopping list that we want to remember with a gift without having to spend a great deal of money. A small stack of these cards tied together with a new dish towel and new wooden spoon is all you need to let someone know you appreciate them around the holiday!

How to Print the Recipe Cards

To download the free Christmas Recipe Card printable, click on the link below to be taken to a file that you can print immediately or save to your computer using the icons in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.

  • The cards have been designed to be double sided with lines on both the front and back. You can either use your printer's two sided printing option if it is available, or do it it manually by printing one side of the card and sticking the paper back in face-up before printing side two.

  • To make durable, long lasting recipe cards, you'll want to be sure to use a heavier white cardstock over ordinary printer paper.

  • Once your cards are printed out, cut along the lines printed on the page. Because it is hard to sometimes get things to line up perfectly coming out of the printer every time, I have designed these cards to only have a cutting line around the fronts of the recipe cards. That way, if the paper didn't come out exactly in line on the second side, you'll never be able to tell once they are trimmed.

  • Although you can use ordinary paper scissors to cut the recipe cards out, using an paper trimmer makes cutting them out fast and straight really easy. (What is pictured is actually a vintage cutter from Kodak that was originally used to slice photos!)

  • If you aren’t printing it right away, but sure to save it somewhere you’ll be able to easily locate it again. It is really useful to create a special folder specifically for printables so you can keep them organized and accessible year after year in case you ever want to print them out again.

  • You can also send the downloaded file to a local or online print shop like Staples or Vistaprint. This gives you a quality piece for not a lot of money (and you don’t waste your colored ink at home!)

As always, this free printable is available for your personal use only and should not be altered in any way or sold for a profit. And if you’d like to share this with a friend, please provide them with a link to this post over just passing along the PDF.
