These are a family favorite. I have fond memories of making these with my Grandma year after year.
These are fun cookies for the kids to help make… especially decorate at the end.
I recommend mixing this up by hand once you add the candies to the batter (not in a counter top mixer or with a hand mixer). The beaters can break the candies.
Bake until golden brown. As you can see I put a few of the drops of cookie dough a bit too close together. They are still fine but don’t look as fancy when they are squished.
As soon as you remove them from the pan, put on two or three more candies for decoration. The kids will enjoy this part.
These are great cookies to set out for Santa on Christmas Eve.
Kids and kids "at heart" will love these festive cookies.
This is a recipe that was given to me by my Grandmother... original source is unknown.
