Greta set out a plate of cookies for Santa and a carrot for his reindeer tonight. We brought these cookies home from Grandma’s. Santa was over Brazil when the kids went to bed, according to my WhereIsSanta tracker app.

Earlier this month, I made two of our traditional favorites: Barefoot Contessa’s rugelach, the Jewish pastry-like cookie and spiced chocolate chunk cookies made with cinnamon and ginger. They’re rolled in powdered sugar right before they go in the oven, which turns into icing.
