Cookies!!

Again…a VERY late post!

Every year my cousins and I get together for our annual Cookie Party Exchange.  We each make a half dozen for each of the other cousins and share the story behind them and why we made our cookies at an event.  We rotate between each cousin’s house and it’s just a very pleasant day!

I am pretty pumped that every year my cookie has been a favorite.  Which gives way to pressure to finding the best cookie for another year.  I tried 3 cookies before I blended two different cookies together.

First to make the vanilla cookie:

1 box of Betty Crocker White Cake Mix

1 egg

1-2 tablespoons milk

1 tsp vanilla

1 stick of butter, room temperature

Blend together all ingredients.  Drop 2 tablespoon drops onto a cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 10 minutes or so.  The top of the cookie won’t turn golden as normal cookies do, but the bottoms will, do not over cook.

Cookies!

Cookies!

While the cookies were cooling completely, I crushed an entire box worth of candy canes.  You could ideally used any kind of peppermint candy you would want.

It did make a very sticky mess 🙂  Then melted vanilla almond bark according to the package, dipped half of each cookie into the melted almond bark and sprinkled the crush peppermint on top.

I made them on Thursday, the party was on Saturday and these babies were still soft and so very tasty.  On to next year to find another cookie!!
