These Santa Pudding Cookies are soft on the outside and slightly crispy on the outside thanks to the vanilla pudding! Lightly flavoured with peppermint for a holiday flavour, feel free to substitute vanilla if you prefer. 

These cheerful cookies are really easy to prepare, so grab the kids and let them join in the fun.   Younger kids can help with the decorating, and older ones should be able to make the whole recipe on their own. 

Classic Sugar Cookies, decorated with Red and Green sanding sugar are another easy to make, but still delicious and festive cookie to make with the kids. 

Perfect for any holiday celebration, either of these would make excellent cookies for Santa. I hope you enjoy them, I know he will!

I’ve also got a great selection of seasonal treats like Grinch Fudge or Grinch Brownies that you might want to consider for a special family movie night.
