This turned out to be a three-day adventure that I had nothing to do with (phew!). Dwayne loves to make these Christmas tree cookies that remind him of his childhood Christmases. (Dwayne, nostalgic? I know!)
First, one must make the dough and let the kids help. Then role the dough into logs of three different sizes and freeze. Slice the frozen dough into little cookies and bake. And bake. And bake. Do three times the baking you would usually do to create these tri-layer cookies. Then make twice as much frosting as needed. Once the cookies are cool, allow children to layer cookies with frosting and add lots of sprinkles for decoration. This took Dwayne and the girls Friday through Sunday to complete.
But look at the results!
They’re pretty good for not having any chocolate—or rum—in them!
