I got this recipe for Santa's favourite choc chip Christmas cookies from a friend in Canada. Cailin's family only bake these at Christmas because they are too moreish to keep around all year long! So that in itself practically guarantees a visit from Santa Claus haha.

3 - Surprise Gift Cookies

I'm finishing off with the baby daddy option. The Swedish have a lovely cookie tradition called Sju Sorta Kakor where you serve 7 varieties of cookies. Cleverly, all of these cookies are made using the same vanilla shortbread dough!
