Best Cookies for Santa

I don’t think Santa gets the credit he deserves. He works so hard all year making the toys, mediating workplace politics among the elves, ensuring that all of our toys are in tip-top shape, and keeping those reindeer in check (I hear Blitzen is can make quite a mess of the North Pole farmyard!) I’m sure Mrs. Claus gives him home-baked treats every now and then, but it can only work out in our favor to show Santa a little extra love, right?
