* Christmas Cookie Exchange *



Jan and Tom are hosting a Christmas Cookie exchange today. To see all of the other recipes, click on the picture above!

One of my all time favorite holiday cookies are these lovely holly leaves and wreaths. I can remember making them with my mom & grandmothers growing up, and they are quick and easy to make now for any holiday get together!

1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 stick butter
1 bag sm. marshmallows
4 c. corn flakes
Green food coloring (I also use a little yellow)
Red hots cinnamon candies

Melt marshmallow and butter in large bowl in microwave, stirring occasionally. Add vanilla and food coloring. Gently stir in corn flakes while marshmallow mix is hot. Drop onto greased wax paper. Can be formed into wreaths if you like. Garnish with red hots (the "berries" of the holly leaves).

  5. I LOVE these things! We never made them when I was growing up for some strange reason, but I always loved it when we'd have a get-together and someone brought them. Yummmmmmy!

    I'll have to do this yummy exchange...I have several no-fail recipes I do every year.

  11. These cookies are so good that when i make them I have to hide them from myself! I would eat the whole batch. I stash them out in my porch where it is cool and they are even better cold! ~ Robyn
