I’m going to start this post by saying that my husband is a total genius. Why am I saying that? Well, I’m telling you that because he doesn’t read my blog very often. Sure, he eats just about everything you see posted, but he doesn’t read the posts that often. I do, however, think he might read this one because these cookies were his idea, and he expected full credit. So there you go. He’s a freaking genius.

The funny thing about my husband’s recommendations for my blog is that 9 times out of 10 his ideas suck aren’t very good. But every once in a while, he comes up with a really great idea. I’ll hand it to him – I loved these trees. His mom has been making Christmas Wreath cookies for years and we always gobble them up. He suggested that instead of making a wreath, I shove them in a Christmas Tree mold and he was right – they were super cute.

I shoved a tootsie roll in the base to give it a stump. The trees would have stood up straight had I not done that, but at the same time I thought the stump gave the treats a lot of character. That being said, consider the tootsie rolls optional. You can’t beat these cookies if you’re looking for a holiday treat that’s tasty, easy, and fun! Your kids will love them too!!!

      Hi Lexy, Do you remember where you were trying to click on the Eggnog Pound Cake? I’ll fix it once I find out where you were trying to click from. I apologize for the ad… without them I wouldn’t be able to produce any of the recipes I do. thanks, Krissy
