Candy Tree Cut-Outs
The hard-candy “ornaments” on these cornmeal cookies sparkle in the light.
Slice pieces from Pillsbury’s Simply Peanut Butter cookie dough in half. Shape into 1-1/2″ triangles and place 3″ apart on cookie sheets. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. While they’re still warm, push a mini chocolate pretzel (we used Flipz) on each side to resemble antlers. Let cool completely. Ask the kids to make the face: Attach brown M&M’s Minis for eyes and a red M&M nose with frosting. Makes 24.
Winter Dream Scene Cookie Cake
Baking sweet treats for a large crowd? Consider one giant cookie cake! We love this pretty winter dream scene, but let your kid channel her inner Picasso and decorate to her heart’s content.
