FESTIVE CHRISTMAS SURPRISE

Hi TLB friends......it's Tuesday and I've got a treat for you today....

I've been searching for a new cookie recipe this year with a 

festive flair; and I found one!


PEPPERMINT BLOSSOM CRINKLE COOKIES-


Aren't they just the cutest little festive bites?
The recipe is so quick and easy. The only thing you need to plan for is chilling the dough in the frig for 2 hours prior to baking.


After you've mixed the dough, combined things well, and chilled them, it's time to roll 1-inch balls into confectioners sugar. Bake according to directions.




When the blossoms come out of the oven, immediately press a kiss into the top of each cookie. Let them stand on the cookie sheet for 10-15 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.


The kisses become soft and will melt a bit.



These little beauties are festive and quite decadent......even if we are using whole
wheat flour and 1/3 fat cream cheese.

So run to the store, gather your ingredients and surprise that favorite someone
with this sweet little taste of Christmas!
