A favorite holiday treat at our home has always been green and red sugar crinkles. We like to keep these yuletide treats in supply throughout the season to satisfy the sweet-tooth and spread Christmas cheer.  Nothing will assure you stay on the nice list like leaving a plate of these for Santa on Christmas Eve.
