    "Galletas navideñas" suena mejor, más natural. (Al menos en España)

    The problem is that we do not have [that I know of] a word for cookie in Spanish. Galleta can be use for both a cookie and a cracker. Since we latinos come from many countries I've found that using the word galletita/galletica solves the problem. But in México we use galleta, as has been pointed out already.
