This is actually my mom’s recipe . . . I’ve never made them though, I just eat ’em.
- 1 Cup Butter softened
- 1/2 Cup Sugar
- 2 1/4 cups flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon of almond extract
- 1 Package red hot cinnamon candies (for holly berries)
- Red, yellow, and green food coloring
Set oven to 400 degrees.
Cream butter and sugar. Blend in remaining ingredients.
To make the wreaths: divide the dough into thirds.
Color one red, one green, and one yellow.
Put all dough into cookie press or spritz maker (these are tri-color wreaths). Make them “wreath shaped.”
Place red cinnamons on top of wreath for holly berries.
Bake 6-9 minutes until set, but NOT BROWN.
Make ’em small and you’ll get about five dozen cookies.
If you make them early and put them in the freezer, hide well – because Rookie says the bag will be gone by Christmas.
