Candy Cane Sugar Cookies

Candy-Cane-Cookies-300x300 (1)

This past week, my daughter has caught the Christmas Bug!! (And I couldn’t be happier!) One of her advent activities this week was to bake cookies – but when I realized I didn’t have the ingredients to make my favorite icing? I had to improvise! (Because you can’t disappoint a 6 year olds desire for Christmas Cookies – regular chocolate chips will NOT do!!)

Staring into the cupboard, debating if I could pick out just the red and green sprinkle from the 5 color jar (yes, I was desperate!) I noticed the Candy Canes and decided to give this a try – and wow!! We have a new Christmas Cookie at our house!
