Santa's Favorite Sugar Cookie Recipe | Kudos Kitchen by Renee

Best Ever Santa’s Favorite Sugar Cookies

When we got married, and Mark and I started our own family, there were certain traditions I wanted to continue from when I was a little girl and hopefully pass along to our two boys. These cookies were one of the things I incorporated throughout the years to fondly rekindle my joyous Christmas memories.

I am happy to report that our boys (now grown) feel exactly the same way about these cookies as I did, and still do to this day.  Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without Santa’s Favorite Sugar Cookies.

Buttery Sweet Pistachio Cranberry Snowball Cookies

I adapted this recipe from one I shared back in 2010 called pecan snowball cookies. I was going to do a recipe re-do where I updated the photos in the original post. However, before I knew it, my brain was adding the festive red and green elements of pistachios and dried cranberries, and omitting the pecans altogether. The result is utterly delicious. I do hope you’ll make these Buttery Sweet Pistachio Cranberry Snowball Cookies. I know you’ll love them just as much as we do!

Homemade Sticky Caramel Sweet Rolls

Because I didn’t want to pitch the entire batch of muffins (and I was hoping that I could still share the recipe with you), I scraped them out of the pan the best I could, flipped them right-side up and decided to make some caramel sauce to spoon over the top. As you can see, the few extra minutes it took to make the caramel sauce was well worth the effort, and now these Homemade Sticky Caramel Sweet Rolls have a double dose of sticky caramel goodness, which is never a bad thing!

Best Ever Gluten Free Maple Bacon Oatmeal Cookies Dipped in White Chocolate

The idea for these Gluten Free Maple Bacon Oatmeal Cookies came to me while I was walking down the breakfast aisle of the grocery store. At the time I needed to replenish my stock of quick cooking oats. As I grabbed the oats and tossed them into my cart I glanced the maple syrup that was across the aisle. Right then and there I had my light bulb moment!

Festive Coconut Banana Custard Holly Berry Pie

I’ve been having such fun the past few months playing with pies and crusts that I just can’t seem to stop myself. Not that I actually want to, because they’ve seemed to have struck a chord with people, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I have several more ideas in mind for decorated pies and crusts, so I hope you’ll stay tuned. But first up is this one for Festive Coconut Banana Custard Pie with a Holly Berry Crust.
