The Official NORAD Santa Site: How to See Santa & What to Feed Him

Early this morning, Santa kissed Mrs. Claus, patted the elves on their pointy caps, and hi-yahed Rudolph on his way.  Santa is officially making his rounds for Christmas and the NORAD Santa tracker has all of the step-by-step details of his trip (click below for the link to this great Christmas resource!).  After chatting with Mrs. Claus, we’ve also gotten a hold of Santa’s favorite gingerbread cookie recipe.  If you haven’t put together a plate of Santa’s favorite cookies, it’s not too late to prepare something delicious for the jolly old man.  After all, he got an early start this morning, he’s probably going to be verrrry hungry when he makes the stop at your house tonight!

The NORAD Santa Tracker is one of the most exciting Christmas traditions of the digital age.  You and your kin can watch Santa as he soars through continents and countries, eventually making his way right into your backyard.  Visit the official site here

Santa’s Favorite Gingerbread
Soft & sweet, this gingerbread is actually edible. Not one of those too-hard-to-eat recipes that so many other gingerbread cookies seem to bake up as.  Santa especially loves it dripping is icing with sprinkles on top!
•3 cups flour
•1/2 teaspoon baking soda
•1/4 teaspoon baking powder
•1/2 cup brown sugar
•2 teaspoons ground ginger
•2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
•1/2 teaspoons ground cloves
•1/2 teaspoon pepper
•1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
•1/2 teaspoons salt
•1/2 cup butter
•1 egg
•1/2 cup molasses
•1/4 cup ice water
In a large bowl, stir together all of the dry ingredients and spices. In an electric stand mixer, beat together the bitter, egg, and molasses. Slowly begin to add the dry ingredients until a thick dough is formed. Add the ice water one tablespoon at a time until the dough is soft, but not sticky. It should hold together and not be crumbly, but still be thick & pliable.
