Cookies for Santa Blog Hop

If you are hopping over for the Santa Baby Blog Hop CLICK HERE.

Welcome to the 

This a one day hop with 10 stops along the way that will be filled with all different kinds of cookie projects. 
You will see cards, layouts, altered art, recipes and all kinds of amazing wonderful projects. Remember this is the time of year when the gloves come off in the kitchen, no low cal nothing, no skimping on the sugar or sprinkles. 
It's the best kind of baking, high test, holiday baking. 
So be sure to grab your favorite cookie and beverage and hop through this yummy tasty blog hop with us.

It's that time of year, cookies for Santa and cookie exchanges too.  
Yesterday was the cookie exchange at work.  
I made these super tasty Super Soft Sprinkle Pudding Cookies.

I found the recipe on Pinterest.  It is from Cookies & Cups blog.

Super Soft Sprinkle Pudding Cookies

Serves: 24 cookies  (My batch actually made 36)
¾ cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg, plus 1 yolk
 1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon kosher salt
1 (3.5-ounce packet instant vanilla pudding mix)
2 cups flour
½ cup sprinkles

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment beat the butter and sugar on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add in the egg, vanilla, baking soda and salt. 
Mix until combined, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary.
Next mix in the pudding mix for 30 seconds.
Turn the mixer to low and add in the flour, mixing until just combined.

Finally add in the sprinkles and mix until incorporated evenly.
Using a medium (2 tablespoon) sized cookie scoop drop dough onto the prepared baking sheet 2 inches apart. Bake for 8-10 minutes until the cookies are almost set. 
Don't over-bake if you want super soft soft cookies.
Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 3 minutes 
before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

I also made a card to leave for Santa with the cookies.
I found this image free on the internet and printed it out and colored it with Copics and a Wink of Stella clear glitter brush pen.  If you notice the smudges on the mug that's because inkjet ink is not water proof, so the WoS pen smeared the ink a bit.  I don't think Santa will mind. 

Thanks for hopping by.  Your next stop is Haidee's blog
Don't forget to leave a comment. 

Happy Crafting

  8. the cookies look delicious.
    I'm reduced to buying my cookies at a cookie walk at the church.
    If I started baking I'd have to many cookies that it would take months to eat them all. Everybody seems to be on a diet so it's left to me to make sure they don't go to waste. thanks.

  9. Now those are some cookies my 11 year old daughter would love to make and her 10 year old brother would love to eat. :)

  10. Those do look yummy! I'm sure the gift exchange was a blast. And I love the card! Great hopping with you!

    1. I'm picky when it comes to chocolate cookies, I much prefer other types (except for Oreos, Thin Mints and Chocolate Crinkles). Lemon cookies are probably my favorites.
