Holidays are my favorite time of year when it comes to baking and cooking. I bake and cook almost every day, but during holidays I will go some to extra lengths to make some cute treats for my little ones. They help sometimes, but most of the time it is messing up the project. This time, I skipped the baking part, thanks to Pepperidge Farm. I decided only to decorate and used Pepperidge Farm cookies to make these holiday cookies. I also made an eggnog cheesecake dip to go with the cookie platter.
Whenever we to go to Target my favorite grocery store, I usually grab a packet of Pepperidge Farm® Milano® cookies, so I decided to play with the Holiday collection of Pepperidge Farm® Milano® to make some cute treats. You can get Pepperidge Farm® cookies from your local Target Store. I made Santa cookies and Reindeer cookies with them. It is really simple. Pepperidge Farm Milano cookies come in three different flavors namely Toasted Marshmallow, Candy Cane, and Double Chocolate. You can use your favorite flavors to make these cookies. Make sure to get some candy coating, holiday sprinkles, colored sugar, chocolate chips, M&M, even a bag of mini pretzels that is going to be your reindeer’s antlers.
As you know for any household, the holidays can be a stressful time – especially when it comes to party planning or your desire to make every day feel special. These are fun and easy cookie decorating ideas which will be cute and makes the holidays even more memorable.
I usually see Pepperidge Farm® Pirouettes cookies as an outer layer covering of cakes, or heels of Silhouette cupcakes. I wanted to make a simple, and easy cookie treat with it, so I made these holly jolly cookie sticks using Pirouettes. This will be a fun project if kids join; yes my two kids are happy to add sprinkles on candy coated pirouettes cookies.
Serve these with coffee or hot cocoa at your holiday parties and guests will rave over these crispy cookie sticks filled with vanilla cream and covered in festive holly sprinkles.
My daughter and son like Gingerbread men and Gingerbread women a lot. So every Christmas I make them. This time, I went for an easy route only decorating those as well using the Pepperidge Farm® Ginger Family. I made homemade royal icing using this recipe and then added a few colors and decorated the cookies.
I also made eggnog cheesecake dip to go with the cookie platter. Christmas won’t be complete if you don’t have eggnog. For this, I made homemade eggnog that is cooked.
This dip is so delicious you can use it for dipping your favorite cookies. Hard to resist tangy cream cheese perfectly balanced with eggnog and spices like nutmeg and cinnamon.
These cookie decorations are simple, and if I can do it (without any formal training), then anybody can do it. This will bring a smile to your kid’s, and guest’s faces when you are organizing the party.
Make these little treats with Pepperidge Farm® cookies; your holiday will be a memorable one. Holidays means happiness. Spread that cheer to your friends and family.
