Cookies for Santa, No Baking Required

By Allison Burch, December 11, 2012  |  Meet the Blogger  |  More Posts by Allison Burch

This year is our first Christmas at home, and we’re excited to start our own family traditions with our three-year old... and he’s excited about cookies for Santa!

Sure, there are baking sheets full of cookie recipes for you to tackle. But if you enjoy eating cookies more than you enjoy baking them, this store-bought solution will still please Santa (and all his little helpers):  365 Everyday Value ® Holiday Cookies in festive once-a-year flavors.

Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake Sandwich CremesFestive Cookie Flavors

365 Everyday Value® Holiday Cookies offer the must-have choices of Gingerbread and Shortbread, but there are two new flavors that you (er…Santa) will love!

365 Everyday Value® Chocolate Candy Cane Sandwich Cremes: This twist on a long-time favorite takes creamy peppermint frosting and mixes in real candy cane bits. This delightful filling is paired with two chocolate cookies.

365 Everyday Value® Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake Sandwich Cremes: In this version, two crispy pumpkin-spice cookies  warm up a creamy, decadent cheesecake filling.

These cookies take the cake because they’re delicious and convenient without any artificial preservatives, colors, flavors, sweeteners or hydrogenated fats.

Special Picks for Special Diets

Our aisles are filled with holiday treats to choose from -- cookies to chocolate to candy canes – even for folks following special diets. Each store has lots of options. Here are just a couple from the “nice” list:

Tru Joy Organic Candy Canes: Organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, vegan and kosher. They also use rice syrup as a sweetener instead of corn syrup.

Lucy’s Chocolate Merry Mint and Holiday Sugar Cookies:  Gluten-free, dairy-free and nut-free, and still amazingly tasty (and they’re Non-GMO Project Certified). You can read more about Lucy’s story this recent blog post.

We think these delicious options will please Santa – and guests, family and you!

What’s in your holiday cookie jar?
