This is the first year that my daughter is really into Santa. Maybe it’s her new found school friends, but I’ve heard more about Santa this year than I have the past years put together. It’s no surprise that I’ve been reminded to make cookies for Santa approximately 1,745 times in the past three days. We have a Christmas party to go to this evening, and I decided to make a tasty cookies recipe that can be made in a big batch. This way I can save a few for Santa, take the rest to the party, and overlook the few that disappear into my belly between now and then! These Snow Capped Cookies for Santa are sweet treats for all of the above.
Any store is crazy the day before Christmas, but the Walmart Bake Center has baking items in a centralized location. It’s easy to find all of the ingredients in this recipe list (except for the butter), and the prices are budget friendly. After all, you might want to make a couple of batches!
- JELL-O Pistachio Flavor Instant Pudding or JELL-O Chocolate Instant Pudding
- BAKER’S White Chocolate
- BAKER’S ANGEL FLAKE Coconut – 14oz pkg.
- JET-PUFFED Marshmallow Creme- 7oz.
- 2 sticks of unsalted butter
- 2 cups flour, softened
- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 2 eggs
- Parchment paper
- 3 tblsp. water
Preheat the oven to 350. In a large bowl, mix the flour and baking soda. Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, thoroughly combine the butter and brown sugar. Add the eggs and combine. Stir in the pudding mix, followed by the flour mixture. Make sure all ingredients are combined. Chop the package of Baker’s White Chocolate into small pieces. Stir these into the batter. Drop the batter onto parchment covered baking sheets by the tablespoonful. Bake for approximately 8 minutes, or until the edges start to brown.
Remove from oven and let cool. Typical cookies cool for about 5 minutes before moving to the cooling rack, but I wait longer with these cookies. Between the added pudding mix and the Baker’s White Chocolate chunks, the cookies take longer to set in the center. Try to remove the cookies too early and they crumble in the center.
After 10-15 minutes, move the cookies to a cooling rack. Let them cool completely here.
To make the white glaze, place half of the jar of JET-PUFFED Marshmallow Creme into a bowl. Add a tablespoon of water. Mix thoroughly. This will take a minute or two, but you will see the marshmallow creme begin to thin. Add water, a small amount at a time, until the mixture is thin enough to pour as a glaze. Add it over the cookies and top them with BAKER’S ANGEL FLAKE Coconut for the snow.
