These are so easy. Just take pretzels in the shapes of bows, place a Hershey kiss on top, place in the oven for a few minutes until the chocolate just starts to melt, take out and put a green or red M&M on top.
We call these cookies Christmas Buttons. You take sugar cookie dough (homemade, a pouch mix or already made in the grocery dairy case) and roll the dough into 1" balls. Roll a dozen in red decorating sugar and bake according to package or recipe directions.
Hi, I love attending Christmas Cookie exchanges but my friends and I always get disappointed when so many have put time and effort to make something pretty and then one or two people end up contributing some cookies that look like they took 5 minutes to make. So here is an easy recipe, that makes tons and tons of cookies and are absolutely beautiful as well as tasty!
1 cup butter flavored shortening
2 cups sugar
1 cup oil
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
5 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cream of tartar
sugar for coating
small red and green gumdrops (bell shaped)
Cream together shortening, sugar, eggs, oil, salt and vanilla. Sift all dry ingredients and add to creamed mixture. Roll into small one-inch balls and roll in sugar. Press one gumdrop in center of each cookie. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Should make close to 100 cookies.

Here it is almost Christmas, and you don't have those dreaded cut-out cookies done yet? Easy. Go to The Dollar Store, and buy some packages of plain sugar cookies. Shake off the sugar and frost them. Now you have instant cut-outs and who is to know the difference?

This is exactly what I thought to do with the left over frosting I have from cookie decorating last night! I don't want to make another batch of dough so this is an easy and quick solution to not let all the colored frosting go to waste. I could save and freeze it, but I really want to use it!
