 Santa’s Favorite Christmas Cookies

This simple recipe is going to be a family favorite for sure and Santa is going to love them each and every year you put them out for him. Bake Santa’s Favorite Christmas Cookies and enjoy every bite! 

Each year, kids love to place a plate of cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve.

Many times, we are rushing around and doing so much, we need some shortcut recipes to help when things are busy, busy.

It’s hard to start a batch from scratch when short on time. So, hereis a quick and easy recipe that happens to make the most delicious cookies the whole family will love.

By using a cake mix and just a few more ingredients, you have a soft and chewy cookie that is fun to decorate right before you pop them in the oven or, after they are baked and cooled, add some vanilla frosting from a can then sprinkle away with all the bright Christmas sprinkles.

You can do both for a nice variety.

Best thing about this recipe is, you can swap out the sprinkles for any occasion. I make these all through the year for bake sales, potluck dinners, and for an easy dessert  recipe during a hectic weeknight.

Also, these make wonderful edible gifts. Only 5 simple ingredients to cookie yumminess!
