Is Santa visiting your home this Christmas? If your answer is yes, I’m sure by now you’ve heard once or twice that he should be met with an array of cookies and a glass of milk.
For many families, making Santa’s cookies with children is a yearly tradition filled with storytelling and decorating. Some of you may not bake as often and may be intimated by the fancy cookie recipes and decorations. For others, with holiday festivities to attend, time is an issue. Whatever your situation, don’t worry, you have options. Santa’s cookies don’t have to be time consuming; they can be quick, easy and fun for both kids and parents.
If you are comfortable in the kitchen and have a little extra time, a fun, ornate recipe for Santa is Buttery Sugar Cookies. The recipe combines sugar and butter, blended in a large bowl. Once blended, add some vanilla extract, eggs and Martha White® All-Purpose Flour. The key to this recipe is an hour of resting time in the refrigerator for easier handling. After cutting and baking is complete, decorate your cookies as desired.
If you prefer a quick and easy cookie recipe, pick up a pouch of Martha White Chocolate Chip Muffin Mix and try Chocolate Chip Cookies with a Surprise or Easy Double Chocolate Chip Cookies. With the help of these simple recipes, preparing cookies for Santa will become a hassle-free tradition in your family. Not only will your children have fun but they’ll be to bed before Santa makes his way to your home.
