Creating holiday goodies

By Lynn R. Mitchell

Every family has traditions of the holidays, and one of those in our family is cookie baking and candy making.

While trying to duplicate a mice recipe from a couple of years ago, I tried to take a shortcut by using packaged sugar cookie mix. The dough wasn’t stiff enough and they not only spread while baking but were flatter than pancakes. SWAC Husband called them road kill.

 After making up a new batch of dough that was stiffer and chilled, the mice came out much better.


The best part of it all is sharing with friends and family.
