5 Fun Cookies For Santa

Dec 24 2010 - 3:30am

Amid all the edible gift making [1] and cocktail-sipping [2], don't forgot one very important task on Christmas Eve: setting out cookies for Santa! But don't even think about throwing a few Chips Ahoy on a plate and calling it a night; Father Christmas (and, ahem, his little helpers who make sure the cookies are gone by morning) deserves better. Before you settle in for your long Winter's nap, bake up a batch of these deliciously festive cookies.

Let Santa know you appreciate his tireless efforts with crumbly, chocolaty Ferrero-Rocher-inspired hazelnut kiss cookies [3].

These peppermint bark cookies [4] are the embodiment of Christmas, so what better treat to offer Father Christmas himself? They're a little time-consuming but completely worth the trouble.

Get the kids in on the action — you are doing this for them, after all, right? — with buttery, dense Norwegian thumbprint cookies [5].

Spare St. Nick the monotony of eating yet another dry gingerbread man. Instead, surprise him with flaky, rich gingersnap palmiers [6].

Anyone who knows Santa knows that he's a serious chocoholic. Make sure he gets his Christmas Eve fix with these chewy double-chocolate cranberry [7] cookies.
