in the kitchen

We all know the drill: Put on your PJs, read “The Night Before Christmas,” place a pile of freshly baked cookies on a plate by the tree, along with a glass of cold milk, and then head to bed to count sheep for what feels like forever. With this fun Christmas tradition in mind, we have selected two great cookie recipes for you to try with your little chefs that Santa will not be able to resist - no matter what Mrs. Claus has to say! So this December, leave Santa something homemade and whip up one of these delicious Christmas cookie recipes.
