Instead of Cookies, Bake Ornamints
December 22, 2015 5 Comments
Do you know how the holiday cookie time is all about butter?
We ran out of butter on Sunday and maybe that was a good thing! These "ornaments" are a fun alternative. You get to make a “cookie” and you can hang it on your tree if you want.
I also like these because they feature one ingredient (mints) and I am not tempted to inhale mints as fast as I eat Christmas cookies. I need to shout out to Reynolds parchment paper for sending me the idea and the images. This really is as easy at looks.
You can make these with other hard candies as well if you want to have some other colors and shapes. If you want to put these on your tree, stab the ornament with a straw after you bake them to create a hole for a ribbon.
Holiday Ornamint Recipe
- Line cookie sheet with Reynolds® Parchment Paper
- Spray oven-safe, metal cookie cutters with non-stick cooking spray, then place on a cookie baking sheet. Fill each cookie cutter with peppermint candies. Break candies into pieces to fill in smaller areas.
- Bake in oven at 350 degrees F for 3–9 minutes until candies melt into cookie cutter shape.
- Remove from oven and let candy harden. Then stretch cookie cutter to remove candy “ornamint”.
