6 Holiday Cookies to Bribe Santa With

Santa called. He wants you to switch up the milk and cookies this year. He’ll never turn down a good ole chocolate chip, but you might just slide onto the nice list at the last minute if you leave him something with a little more… pizzazz. (See also: sparkle, flair, and general extravagance.)

Let’s explore a few tasty alternatives for Santa’s midnight insulin spike and see where they land on his list.

The Nice

Spritz Cookies

I mean, just look at ‘em. How could anything that cute be anything but nice? These simple butter cookies love sprinkles and community service and are even nicer with a splash of Almond Extract.

Orange Spice Cookies

Zesting an orange for this recipe is basically aromatherapy. The warming aroma of Supreme Saigon Cinnamon, Ginger, and Madagascar Cloves isn’t bad either. 10/10 would smell again.

The Naughty

Poppy Corn Cookies

Feed these cookies to your enemies right before important social events. They’ll be so distracted by how delicious the cookies are they won’t even think to check their teeth for Dutch Blue Poppy Seeds.

Golden Milk Macarons

Don’t be fooled by their disarming good looks, these French sandwich cookies can be tricky to make. For those wanting to drink their Golden Milk Chai Latte and bake it too, this recipe has detailed directions and lots of tips for achieving chewy meringue cookies with smooth, domed tops.

The Chaotic Neutral

Molasses Crinkle Cookies

These cookies woke up like dis. They love their crinkles and don’t care what anybody else thinks. They also have a heart of gold. Gold being Sliced Crystallized Ginger.

Maple Crunch Cookies

Nothing quite says “I’m nuts,” like sticking a single pecan on top of 40 cookies. One bite of these sweet maple shortbread cookies and you’ll realize it was all worth it.

Santa called back to thank you ahead of time for keeping him fed and fueled. He added that slipping him a 20 wouldn’t hurt, either. Merry Christmas!
