Santa's Parade of Lights would like to thank our founder Ken Cantor and his company Primavera Development Group for their ongoing support of these community events. Ken always has a vision of a great Edmonton and the parade is one of the many ways he shows it.http://primaveradevelopmentgroup.com/
After all the hard work of delivering toys to all the children in time for Christmas, Santa needs a sweet treat! Nothing says Christmas like milk and cookies, so here is a recipe for the best chocolate chip cookies of all time!
· 1 cup butter, softened
· ½ cup granulated sugar
· 1 cup packed brown sugar
· 2 eggs
· 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
· 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
· 1 teaspoon baking soda
· 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
· Heat oven to 375°F
· Beat butter, sugars, eggs, and vanilla into a large bowl until light and fluffy. Stir in flour and baking soda until well blended. Add in chocolate chips; mix well.
· Drop tablespoonfuls of dough, 2 inches apart, onto baking sheets.
· Bake 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on baking sheet for 3 minutes. Place on wire racks to cool completely.
· Enjoy with a tall glass of milk!
The weather is cooling down which means it’s time to start decorating for Christmas!
One of Santa’s favourite decorations to see is a snow globe because they are fun to watch and easy to make!
Here’s what you’ll need:
· A glass jar with a screw top lid
· Glitter (1-2 tablespoons)
· Glycerin 3-5 drops (this is optional but it makes the glitter float nicer)
· Hot glue
· Figurine to go inside
Step one: Choose a small figurine that will fit in the jar
Step two: Glue the bottom of the figurine down to the inside of the lid
Step three: Fill the jar with water, glitter, and glycerin
Step four: Screw on your lid and watch the pretty winter scene!
