Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies

 

Dear Santa – I’ve tried so hard to be mostly good all year long, with a moderate degree of consistency.  I rescued a kitten. Kissed babies.  Picked up litter in the park.  And, even helped an old lady cross the road.

Just asking for a bit of leeway on that 1 night in Copenhagen, 2 nights in Vegas & afternoon on Lake Michigan this past Summer.

Oh.  Also.  A dozen of these cookies & an ice cold glass of milk are waiting for you next to the Christmas Tree.

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays! -David
