A Melt-in-the-Mouth Cookie Santa

To the casual outside observer, my mom has “a Santa problem”, which we playfully tease her about every Christmas (even though we all secretly love it). She morbidly taunts us that when she’s dead and gone, her Santa problem will become our problem—our inheritance won’t be counted in thousands of dollars, it will be thousands of Santas, muahahaha!

Well, it seems she’s not content to wait until she’s dead and gone. This year I got a very cool Santa Claus of my own, custom-made by Michelle Treichler, complete with a stack of Melt-in-the-Mouth Cookies and miniature reproductions of Woman’s Day Magazine (where the recipe first appeared).

My father has a Santa problem as well. I think I have photos somewhere on a very old blogpost that may or may not have survived… Do the Santas hide after the holidays?

It takes a few weeks, I’m told sometimes as long as early Spring, but, yes, eventually each and everyone of them returns to their appointed boxes and containers—which only she knows.
