Sure, it is only Halloween (Oct. 31), but Mariah Carey is having a good season and is ready for the Christmas holiday. She released the first single, “Oh, Santa,” from her upcoming album Merry Christmas II You which is set for release this week. She also just announced that she is pregnant after months of tabloid speculations. And now, the singing diva is releasing a coveted Christmas cookie recipe for all of her fans!

Come Nov. 2, you’ll be able to listen to the full Merry Christmas II You album which features a new recording of the smash hit ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You,’ as well as classic holiday songs — as you bake. Check out the recipe below:

Mariah Carey’s ‘Merry Christmas II You’ Cookies

Serves 4 dozen

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon of lemon zest
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Cream butter, gradually add sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, milk, vanilla and lemon zest. Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Gradually add to creamed mixture. Chill for easy handling. Roll out dough to 1/8″ thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut dough into festive holiday shapes with floured cookie cutters. Bake on a cookie sheet in a preheated 350-degree (Fahrenheit) oven for 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. Decorate with icing and green and red sprinkles.

Place cookies on a plate beside the Christmas tree with a tall glass of milk for Santa Claus on Christmas Eve!
