Another classic the Sandwich Cookie. This one is filled with frosting and rolled in festive sprinkles.
Try this Holiday Funfetti Sandwich Cookie or try it with my twist using JIF Whips- Peanut Butter and Chocolate Mint
Follow the same steps to make the cookie but instead of filling with frosting use the JIF whips in the limited flavor of MINT! Finish it off with a roll in some sprinkles and it’s just as delicious!
These cookies were so delicious and so easy to make. I loved how simple they were to make yet the variety using Smucker’s preserves is endless!
This recipe is more about learning a technique if you will. Any cookie shape that is wide enough or large enough to hang on your mug can be transformed into a Mug Topper. The idea is to cut an area wide enough and deep enough for your cookie to hang off your mug.
Using the Joy Cookie recipe minus the dye job (though you can totally color these as well)
I made star shaped cookies. Before placing on a baking sheet, I used a butter knife to cut a rectangular shape down the middle. The trick is to make wide enough to fit on a mug and long enough for it to sit.
I baked accordingly and let them cool before I decorating.
They even decorated their gingerbread kids. The steps were the same cutting rectangles before baking!
Then it was off to enjoy! Delicious!
