12 days of Christmas
I love the Twelfth Day of Christmas Song,I must have been looking for the words last year when I found a blogger who asked other bloggers to make Cookies for each day of the song. Anyone who was brought up celebrating Christmas and played a part in Christmas pageants knows the tune to this song, but the words? Each bloggers vision for the cookies to correspond to this song, captured the spirit of giving. I thought it was deserving of an Anchor!
You must drop by, it will inspire you with your own cookie decorating this year.
If you want a festive little cookie and you're oven is on the fritz or something crazy like that! Here is a cookie that you make on the stove. The dairy is easily replaceable with coconut or other non-dairy milks. The red cherries and nuts make it a very festive cookie that's easy to whip up in a few min. If you have an allergy to nuts try crispy wheat or rice puff. I hope you get to try it.
1/2 c. undiluted evaporated milk
2 c. sugar
1/2 c. margarine
1/2 c. cocoa
1/2 tsp. salt
3 c. quick-cooking oats
1 c. coconut
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. sliced, candied cherries or dried cherries
1/2 c. chopped walnuts.
In a large saucepan combine milk, sugar, margarine, cocoa, and salt. Cook stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until soft ball forms when tested in a glass of ice cold water. Remove from heat and stir in oats, coconut, vanilla, candied cherries and chopped walnuts. Mix well. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto silpat or waxpaper and allow to cool.
