I don't remember ever setting out a plate of cookies for Santa. But, if I were going to start that tradition - these would be it. I like this recipe just like it is - and it makes a bunch (for Santa's bowl full of jelly)! So, if you have a cookie swap or an office to bake for - these are it. The cranberries, white chocolate chips, and pecans (or walnuts) are just the thing.
Enjoy. And Happy Baking for the holidays!
