Santa won’t have any trouble getting to Minnesota this Christmas if the weather we’ve had continues.
I woke up to this winter wonderland for what seems like the 10th time this December. Is it really not even considered winter yet? Oh, help me.
But there is one, yes only one good thing about being snowed in—it is a great excuse to stay snuggled up inside and turn on the warm oven, bake cookies, and the necessary taste-testing session as well. So I guess if all this snow is coming the week before Christmas, it’s ok, I had baking on my agenda anyways!
3 days to go!
Santa Graham Cookies
- Red food color, I used Wilton red food coloring paste
- 1 1/4 cups vanilla frosting (from 16-oz. can)
- 12 (2 1/2-inch-square) graham crackers
- 1 cup (about 75) miniature marshmallows, halved crosswise
- 6 small red gumdrops, halved crosswise
- 24 red cinnamon candies, I used mini red and green M&M’s instead
- Line cookie sheet with waxed paper. In small bowl, stir 1/4 teaspoon red food color into 1/4 cup of the frosting; blend well. In separate bowl, stir 1 drop red food color into remaining 1 cup frosting; blend well.
- For each cookie, frost 1 inch of one corner of cracker with dark red frosting for Santa's hat. Place 1 marshmallow piece in corner for pom-pom.
- Frost remainder of cracker with pink frosting. Place marshmallow pieces on pink frosting around 2 sides for beard. Add gumdrop for nose and cinnamon candies for eyes. Place on waxed paper-lined cookie sheet.
