25 Days of Baking: Day 18
“SANTA! OH MY GOD! Santa’s coming! There’s so much to do!”
It’s that time of year again to make Santa’s cookies. But which are his favorite? Christmas sugar cookies of course. Santa loves seeing all the creativity and love put into decorating his cookies, just ask Buddy the Elf!
When preparing to make these cookies, I ventured down into the basement where I keep a chest, yes a chest, of my miscellaneous baking items. I return from the basement with three tupperwares of just sprinkles and food coloring. Needless to say, these cookies turned out nicely. I will admit Christmas sugar cookies are a labor of love with all the decorating, but I enjoyed every minute of it!
The recipe is for your typical sugar cookie with the following perks…
- You don’t need to refrigerate the dough
- The recipe doubles easily
- The royal icing hardens nicely for cookie stacking and gifting purposes
- If you leave them out for Santa, I guarantee he will return the favor under the tree
