The air is crisp, the twinkling lights adorn every corner, and the scent of cinnamon and nutmeg fills the kitchen. It’s December—the most enchanting time of the year! At Cecil and Lou, we believe in celebrating the season with love, laughter, and cherished traditions. And what better way to kick off the holiday festivities than by baking cookies for Santa Claus himself?
The Perfect Recipe: Santa’s Favorite Cookies
Let’s start with the heart of the matter—the cookies! Gather your little ones, don your coziest Christmas pajamas, and head to the kitchen. Here’s a simple and delightful recipe for Santa’s favorite cookies:
- 1 cup unsalted butter (softened)
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar (packed)
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups of chocolate chips (because Santa deserves the best!)
1.Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
2.In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
3.Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
4.In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
5.Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, mixing until well combined.
6.Fold in the chocolate chips.
7.Drop spoonfuls of dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
8.Bake for 10–12 minutes or until golden brown.
9.Let the cookies cool slightly before transferring them to a wire rack.
Leave a few cookies slightly underbaked—they’ll be extra chewy and irresistible!
As the cookies bake, cozy up in your favorite Christmas pajamas. At Cecil and Lou, we’ve got you covered with adorable designs featuring candy canes, Christmas trees, and jolly Santas. Imagine the joy on your little one’s face as they eagerly await Santa’s arrival, snuggled up in their festive sleepwear.
As you place the freshly baked cookies on a plate, don’t forget a glass of milk for Santa. Encourage your little ones to write a heartfelt note, expressing their gratitude for all the joy he brings. And when Christmas morning arrives, watch their eyes light up as they discover the crumbs and the thank-you note—proof that Santa paid a visit!
