Wreath Cookies

Scripture to Live By:

Psalm 100
Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands!
Serve the Lord with gladness;
Come before His presence with singing.

Know that the Lord, He is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.

For the Lord is good;
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations.



Thanksgiving is almost here.  I hope each of you will be spending it with loved ones and sharing things you are very thankful for.  I am so very thankful for my family and friends, even though I will not be spending Thanksgiving with them.

I am most thankful for my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who loved me and gave His life for me that I might have life eternal.  When I was a little girl I memorized Psalm 100 and it is still one of my favorite psalms.  I think it is an appropriate scripture to use around my table at the Thanksgiving meal. He is worthy of our praise and gratitude this Thanksgiving.


Recipe Post:

This recipe of Wreath Cookies is enjoyed by everyone in our family, but my oldest granddaughter looks forward to them the most.  So here is to you Beth.  



Here is what you will need to make these cookies.
Printable Recipe

1/4 cup of margarine
1 teaspoon of vanilla
4 cups of corn flakes
Green food coloring
Red hearts candies
Pull to Peel Twizzlers Candy
Measure out 4 cups of cornflakes and set aside


Spread out a piece of wax paper about 24 inches long.


Take 2 pieces of Twizzler pull apart licorice and pull into strands to make your bows out of.  
Set aside.  




Put the first two ingredients in a microwaveable dish and cook in microwave for two minutes.



  Remove from microwave oven and stir well.  Put back in the microwave oven and cook one minute longer.







Remove from microwave oven and add 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 1 teaspoon of green food coloring, mix well..

Pour over the cornflakes and stir until cornflakes are thoroughly coated.Shape into balls and put on wax paper.  Shape on wax paper into a wreath. Putting a hole in the center.
     Should make 12 wreaths.


Add red candy hearts as seen below.  

Make your  twizzler strings into bows as seen below.

Make two loops.  Tie into a bow by wrapping one loop around the other and coming through the hole with that loop.  Adjust the bow to look just right.







  Add the bow to the top of the wreath.  Trim ends of the bow if needed.


Now you are ready to serve your Wreath cookies.


Serve by the plate or single serving.



Christmas is my favorite time of the year.  I love to decorate, cook, bake, make and give gifts, listen to Christmas music.  I love a fire in the fire place and spending time with friends and family.  
What a special time of the year.  
Rejoicing in the one who made it possible.

Blessings,

  8. My husband's family taught me this recipe, but we have never done the bow. That's a cute finishing touch. I love these and had thought about blogging a tutorial on them, but now I won't have to if you'll link this awesome recipe to our Holiday Cookie Recipe Swap, which is going on for a month: http://thedomesticatedprincess.blogspot.com/2012/11/holiday-cookie-recipe-swap-week-1.html
