  1. I’m going to have to try these they look really good and I don’t have to heat up the oven. I wouldn’t have thought to use a cookie cutter this way to still get the shape, great idea! I think I would also look for some little red and blue candies to put on for ornaments.

  2. This looks like the perfect recipe to make with the teeny kiddos. I will have to keep this in mind for holiday baking this year! Thanks for sharing! I’m sure they taste as good as they look!
