These are officially the “it” cookies to leave for Santa. In the coming years, as Bo becomes more able to help in the kitchen, I hope to have a batch of this dough frozen in sheets and on hand for Christmas Eve cookie baking. I can’t imagine a better activity than making beautiful cookies to set out for Santa on Christmas Eve. I hope that these cookies become a part of our holiday traditions.
The dough for these cookies was simple to put together. I started by whisking together the dry ingredients. Amazing that the main base for these cookies is pulverized almonds. But I think that is truly what makes them so yummy. The flavor reminds me of the Windmill cookies I loved as a kid.
Then, I rolled the dough out so it was very thin.
The results were beautiful cookies that were easy to sandwich together to make the raspberry filled creations above. These cookies taste great too. This recipe receives 5 stars from those of us at Chez Sticky Feet and definitely deserves a place of honor as the cookie that Santa receives for many years to come.
