Santa, as you might imagine, is an easygoing guy, jolly, and eager to like and to be liked. He takes no pleasure in making up the list of naughty boys and girls. But there is one thing Santa Claus does not care for and that is when people put out store bought cookies for him on Christmas Eve. This is not to say that Santa does not enjoy the occasional Oreo, Thin Mint or Nutter Butter, but rather that when he has taken the time to come right to one's house to deliver one’s gifts in person he would like to know that we have made an effort on his behalf as well.
Cookies For Santa does not purport to contain Santa’s very favorite cookie recipes. But having read numerous biographies, the publishers feel that they understand his tastes pretty well and have selected recipes based on their understanding of him and what they think he would like.
