Now that we’re nine days to Christmas, it’s time to bring up the best thing besides gifts: Christmas cookies.
This year, House Method surveyed 4,580 Americans in mid-November, asking them to select their favorite Christmas cookie. The responses were sorted by state, and the results were rather unsurprising.

Sugar cookies with frosting were voted the most popular Christmas cookie in the US this year, with 21.9% of Americans voting them for the top spot. Chocolate chip cookies took second place, with 21.6% of the total vote.
The sugar cookies with frosting took top spots in Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Missouri, Montana, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Mexico, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
The results for the country as a whole were remarkably close to the count by state results, with 21 states voting in favor of the sugar cookie with frosting, and 18 states voting for chocolate chip cookies.
What’s most interesting, is that Seasonal Oreos and Trader Joe’s Peppermint Joe-Joe’s made the final United States count, with a combined total of 4% of US votes.
