Add M&M's Minis to this basic sugar cookie to make a festive cookie for Santa.
Christmas tree cookies are this week's featured recipe and the last installment of our cookies-for-Santa for the month of December. I hope you've enjoyed checking out the recipes over the past couple of weeks. I know we've enjoyed eating them at our house.
More importantly, I hope you've made some wonderful new memories with your children, family and friends while being in the kitchen this Christmas season.
I know there have been a few times this season I've let the baking becoming a little overwhelming, but all-in-all it has been oh-so-sweet.
Time seems to really fly by this time of year, and that is exactly why I chose to hold this cookie recipe until last. After all, you only need two ingredients -- sugar cookie dough and M&M's minis. That's it! And really, they are too cute.
To save time, I completely cheated, and used store-bought, pre-sliced cookie dough. But if you have a made-from-scratch sugar cookie recipe, then by all means use it.
I believe the most time consuming part of this whole recipe was picking out only the yellow, green and brown M&M's -- those are the only colors I used in the recipe.
Don't forget to leave a glass of milk out for Santa when you leave him a plate full of these Christmas tree cookies.
