Easy Holly Cookies are delish and festive!  See recipe on MissionToSave.com

When I got married my sister threw me a wedding shower and gave each attendee an index card to write a fave recipe. (Yep old school!). I still have, and use, many of those tried and true recipes.  One holiday fave came from my sister.  So this post is for you Ange! ;)

If you need a quick and festive cookie idea, make Cereal Holly Cookies. (Basically Rice Krispies, only with corn flakes and green food coloring).  Ok, my sister calls these “Green Wreaths” because she takes the time to form them into a wreath shape…I’m too lazy. So I just spoon on a glob and call it holly! LOL!

A word of warning, if you have a very strong green food coloring, it can stain your fingers when you are making the holly/wreath.  So either wear prep gloves…or be sure not to make these on THE day OF your holiday party! ;)
