The Liberty County Convention and Visitors Bureau hosted Southern Cooks LIVE on Oct. 13 with guests Liberty County resident and mom of three boys, Jennifer Cardella, and Mrs. Santa Claus.

Mr. and Mrs. Claus come every year to celebrate Liberty County’s Christmas traditions on the first weekend of December. And Mrs. Claus came to bake cookies with Cardella and to remind everyone of the upcoming 21st annual Illuminated Christmas Parade Dec. 1, and the 11th annual Christmas in the Park on Dec. 2.

Cardella shared a from-scratch Christmas angel sugar cookie recipe, originally from the Pioneer Woman cookbook.

"When I’m tired or doing laundry, I always pull out this recipe because it is literally half as hard as (homemade) chocolate chip cookies," Cardella said.
