Santa Sugar Cookies

265

Christmas just isn't Christmas without yummy cookies! Our family is full of sugar cookie junkies. Our cute mom saw some cute Santa cookies at a local restaurant and decided that she could easily make her own. These cookies were a huge hit at our party and if you need a darling cookie for a cookie exchange, this is your go-to cookie! Our mom makes a killer sugar cookie- they are incredibly soft and delicious (the secret ingredient- sour cream!).
