Candy Cane Blossoms

 

Welcome to Day #4 of Christmas Week, a multi-blogger event co-hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Jen from Juanita’s Cocina! We hope you enjoy this fabulous event. Continue to tune in as we share another delicious Christmas treat today, and tomorrow.

Today instead of a Christmas candy recipe, I have a delicious Christmas cookie recipe instead.

Candy Cane Blossoms

I grew up with my dad making his delicious and almost famous toffee (recipe coming soon) every winter to give out to our neighbors and friends and family. But I don’t have that one thing that I make to give out to people. I like trying so many different recipes that I usually end up giving out whatever I have made that tastes good. I’ve given out peanut butter and chocolate fudge, cookies, sweet breads, we even gave smoked trout one year.

These cookies are definitely good enough to give out to your neighbors, plus they are easy and delicious for you to eat too!

This recipe is inspired by these cookies from Baked Perfection.
