Mrs. Santa Claus Cookies: The Story of a Snickerdoodle Woman

If you need a cookie on Christmas Eve, 
Mrs. Santa Claus has a few up her sleeve.
She has chocolate chip and almond biscuit, 
So much tastier than a greasy beef brisket. 
Macaroons with coconut and brownies with butter.
Fortune cookies make your heart flutter.
Oatmeal raisin and iced gingerbread men
Make you smile again and again.
Her favorite cookie in case you didn’t know
Is a snickerdoodle with cinnamon dough.
Baking soda, flour, and cream of tartar
With eggs and sugar for a quarter.
The spice smells like the holiday season.
Cookies are red and green for a reason.
You can add kisses or nuts for variation.
Hot chocolate with cream helps hydration. 
When leaving your cookie for Mr. Claus,
Take a moment and make a pause.
Learn from his wife about confection.
She’s an expert at cookie convection.
Then write him a note with your autograph
And have a hearty Christmastime laugh!
