When I was young we always used to leave a mince pie out for Santa but these days you see all sorts. Speaking to my friend’s children they believe that leaving cookies out for him guarantees the best presents!
Last year, on Christmas Eve, Dean made cookies as we were having the family around. We don’t have children yet, but I can’t wait for us to make Christmas magical and make Christmas recipes with them.
Dean always says in the Christmas films they make cookies for Santa (he’s a big kid too). Myself I think it’s more of an American tradition and us English tend to leave mince pies instead.
This sticky toffee and date cookies are great to make with your children, they’re chewy and very sticky. I like to think they’re a bit on healthier side too by adding dates to them 😜
