If Santa can eat cookies late at night, we can too, right? ‘Tis the season for holiday treats and there’s no shortage of shortbread, sugar, or gingerbread goodies going around.

Here’s a sampling of the sweetness we’ve seen:

Futile Bakery, 399 Waller Ave., Ste. 130 | $38 | The Holiday Cookie Tin is filled to the brim with ~36 cookies in nine different varieties including classic Irish butter, cinnamon roll pinwheels + guava twists.

Holly Hill & Co., 426 N. Winter St., Midway | $37 | A beautifully-decorated tin packed with 24 cookies with four of each of the following flavors: chocolate chip, spicy sorghum, buttery corn, rich Woodford, and tender vanilla cranberry shortbread.

La Petite Delicat, 722 National Ave. | $20 | The holiday box contains a bag of chocolate mint meringues, two too-cute-to-eat holiday-shaped macarons + four holiday-flavored macarons.
