Raisin & Oat Cookies for Santa!

image

So it’s our two boys first proper Christmas, where the eldest now understands that Santa Claus is coming to deliver presents. He is so excited it’s brilliant! And we are ecstatic because he is! We went shopping for food and my nearly 3 year old was singing “We wish you a merry Christmas!” to everyone he saw walking down the shopping aisles! 🙂

So keeping up with festive tradition we have made some soft crumbly cookies for Santa and will be leaving them out for him on Christmas Eve! With a little something special with the cookies!

See you soon friends! Much love D x

I managed to get 10 medium to big sized cookies and baked 5 per sheet
