When I told my daughter that we will be making Honey Christmas cookies, she frowned and said: But I want to make sugar cookies for Santa, otherwise he won’t give me nice gifts.
Don’t worry child, Santa will be generous with you and he will love your Honey Christmas cookies.

Now let me tell you how you can prepare delicious Honey Christmas cookies and serve them for Santa on Christmas EVE.
