How do you make cookies for Santa?

Advice from a friend's kindergarten class:

You need sugar and cookie powder and you bake them in the oven for I think about 12 minutes that's "top temperature".
Ah, I have made Christmas cookies before! You need to make Christmas peanuts too. They should be turquoise.
You need to make to make Christmas tree cookies. You put them in an oven that's really hot. Get some milk too for Santa!
You use powder and sugar and honey. Mix it all up and bake for I think about 5 minutes. The oven should be "80".
You need dough and sugar and some sprinkles and some frosting and you put them in the oven for probably 10-15 minutes.

Here's cookie baking tip # 4 and #5.

4. Use shiny aluminum cookie sheets with one or two raised ends. Insulated baking sheets prevent cookies from browning too much on the bottom but it's hard to judge doneness because the edges don't brown as well either. Cookies bake faster on dark sheets so watch carefully.

5. Bake one sheet at a time or rotate sheets halfway through baking. Cool you cookie sheets between batches. Test your oven temperature using an oven thermometer and adjust the temperature if needed.
