I have to bake some cookies for a Kindergarten Mom’s bake exchange this week. I have been totally stumped on what to make, as some recipes sounded really good, but nothing screamed ‘Yes, you are making me!‘, ….. until about ten minutes ago!
I put on the food network channel (I love that channel!) and a Paula Deen‘s show was on about Winter Cookie Exchanges and I saw the most awesome treat ever. It is the case of already knowing about something, but never coming up with the obvious way to display it.
I am sure that most of you out there have heard of a pinwheel cookie.
Well, they had made peppermint pinwheel cookies and stuck a lollipop stick in one side. Once the cookie was baked they placed the cookie part inside of a cellophane bag and tied a ribbon around the base of the cookie, leaving the stick poking outside of the wrapper.
Wah-la! A peppermint lollipop cookie!!!!
I am going to head out and buy all the ingredients today! … Although I probably won’t get a chance to make them until Tuesday (watch for photos).
I have made a recipe card from a recipe I found on the internet in case you want to print off a copy for yourself. (FYI: ‘t’ = teaspoon)
Have a Happy Sunday Everyone!
