Santa’s Favorite Cookie

After tasting these Chocolate Chip Cookies while delivering presents on Christmas Eve, Santa Claus will surely leave extra gifts as a thank you for making his tummy ho-ho-happy! Don’t forget a tall class of milk alongside his plate–these cookies are perfect for dunking. Thanks Aunt Sherri for sharing your famous recipe!


  • 2 cups butter flavored Crisco
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 4  1/2 cups flour
  • One bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips (You could also do half chocolate, half white chocolate. Or add holiday M&M’s.)


  1. Cream butter flavored Crisco, white sugar and brown sugar until fluffy and no sugar crystals. About 10 minutes. (This will seem like a long time, but it is essential for the deliciousness of the cookies!)
  2. Stir in eggs, vanilla extract, baking soda, salt and flour until incorporated.
  3. Add chocolate chips (or white chocolate chips or M&M’s).
  4. Drop tablespoons of dough 2″ apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.

Love food. Love self. Love life.

9 Days ’til Christmas!
