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.

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!
