Before you know it the Big Guy will be making his yearly appearance. Have your sweet treats ready with these 25 Christmas Cookies recipes for Santa! Kids will love helping choose their favorite to make then leave out on Christmas Eve.
Some of my favorite holiday memories are baking in the kitchen with my Mom. Now that my girls are older, they love to join in on the Christmas baking too! While we make plenty of sweets for ourselves, I also love to gift these festive baked cookies and treats during the Holidays. They make perfect gifts for teachers, mail carriers, and other service men and women.
