It's the most wonderful time of year. As the days get shorter and weather turns colder, many of us look to familiar family traditions to celebrate. (Because is it really the holiday season without decorating the tree or baking those special holiday cookies for Santa?)

Back in the kitchen, we're reminded of all things ooey, gooey, and chewy. Nothing beats the sweet, delicious smell of freshly baked cookies straight from the oven. As the aroma of sugar and butter slowly fills the kitchen and parts beyond, we can't help but smile. The happy memories triggered from this event may be further engrained with the sounds of the season, like silver bells ringing and joyous voices singing our favorite holiday songs. This year, skip the store-bought desserts and spread a little extra holiday cheer with these yummy homemade Matcha cookies for Santa. Enjoy!
