More About This Recipe

  • These easy Holiday Swirl Cookies are so festive, they'll look great on any holiday table. As I was browsing in the grocery store last week, I saw some gorgeous holiday suckers. The bright red and green swirls caught my eye and I thought, “I wonder if we could somehow turn these into cookies…” Meet my Holiday Swirl Cookies! Actually, if you have cellophane on hand, they’re even cuter wrapped as little “candies." How great would one or two of those be on top of a gift of goodies? What cookies have you been making this holiday season?
