Having a newborn this Christmas season has really helped me to simplify our Christmas celebrations. This isn’t to say that we haven’t been celebrating (as you may have seen on Instagram), it just means that I’ve been trying (key word: trying!) to choose festivities that are simple and doable with little ones running around.

SIMPLE + QUICK SANTA HAT COOKIES

Making some Santa Hat cookies were just that: a simple treat to eat for dessert one night. (And may or may not have been bribery to get our picky toddlers to eat dinner.)

I was able to make these quickly while all 3 were napping and even got in a nap myself. I’m not one to give up my naps very often!

My kids loved them and I loved them too. For all the treats that Christmas bombards us with, it was refreshing to have fruit be a main ingredient. And not to mention, but how festive are they?

Tips:

  • Make the cream cheese mixture up to 2 days before using. Seal in a bag, but don’t cut off the corner until you are ready to use it. Just keep the icing in the fridge until you are ready to assemble the Santa Hat cookies.

I love that you made these while the kiddos were napping! The strawberries must pair perfectly with the OREO cookies, yum! #client

Do I have to refrigerate the icing? I was going to make then on Christmas and take to my sister’s house that night.
