peppermint cookies

I normally do plates of treats, but this year I decided to keep thing simpler.  Did it work?  Well, no.  Simple is not what interests me.  I found a cookie on the food network that was so worth spending time on.  Besides, how many people give away sandwich cookies.  They were packaged two ways and it was fun putting it all together.  I also made some homemade marshmallows from Martha Stewart's recipe.  They are best when used with hot cocoa.

Orange Monster

I know it's not a great picture, but he's too cute to not show you.  He was finished in the car on the way to my sister's house.  I made him for my nephew's birthday.  T was turning one. T enjoyed him and so did his older brothers.  He really needs a name.  I hope they find a good one.
I found the directions for him in this book.  I have now made two.  This guy is so cute in person, but I am having trouble getting a good pic of him.
