I put some milk & cookies out for Santa in anticipation of his arrival. . .
Thanks to our annual cookie exchange, Santa has lots of variety this year . . .
Adorable and classic Spritz Cookies. . .
. . .or tray full of other varieties to satisfy his sweet tooth!
My vintage-inspired chalkware Santas, along with my Great Aunt’s Santa mugs & bowl made the trek to the table~
The varieties of cookies for Santa to choose from are as overwhelming for him, as they were for me, deciding on one to bake. . .
Fortunately I had some cookie inspiration from Nigella. . .
Still it was difficult to decide on one variety, so I chose two :)
