Santa Hat Shortbread Cookies
I have the cutest cookie recipe for you guys today. With the holidays coming, I know we will all be baking up a storm, so I wanted to share something that is simple, sweet, and easy to make and decorate!
Krusteaz sent me a bunch of easy to make cookie mixes so that I could spread the Christmas cheer with my friends, family, and neighbors this year and this Santa Hat Shortbread Cookie recipe will definitely be one of the favorites this year.
You only need a few ingredients, Krusteaz Shortbread Cookie Mix, butter, strawberries, frosting, white chocolate chips, and about 20 minutes to make these cookie for your next cookie swap, family function, or just as a special treat. I love the natural sweetness that the strawberries add to these cookies, plus with that little white chocolate chip on top, it looks like Santa’s hat!
