Hey SA Fans … Just like Miss Jingles, I’m back!!!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a recipe for y’all so I thought I’d make up for it by bringing y’all 12 Days of Christmas Cookies that include some of my favorite family classics and some new finds!

Candy Cane Blossoms

First up is one of my families’ favorites. Growing up my sister’s favorite cookie has always been the Peanut Butter Blossom so when Hershey’s came out with their Candy Cane Kisses a few years ago and it had the recipe for these cookies on the bag we knew we had to try them and they have now become a staple in our house! These are also a fun cookie to make and to have kids help out with; they can help roll the dough in whatever sprinkles you choose and when the cookies come out of the oven they can help put the kisses on them as well! I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!

I started to run out of green sprinkles so I just added some red in with the green. I love the way they turned out!! And if you run out of Kiss's they still make great sugar cookies! :-)
