And Perpetua: yes, it’s corn flakes. The easiest, most fun, and almost the tastiest cookie around, plus RED HOTS: 1 stick butter, 1 bag marshmallows, squeeze of green food coloring, 1 t vanilla, 4 C corn flakes, and red hots to taste. Easy squeezy!
Just make sure to enforce hand washing among child chefs before, during, and after the cookie shaping. Little fingers go right into the mouth without thinking.
I baked chocolate chip cookies and oatmeal cookies for my students — not very Christmas-y, but good. I’m not doing my usual crescents this year. But I did make an awesome pecan brittle: basically pecan pie without the crust.
But I think I’m coming over to your place, as the selection looks awesome!
I’m not going to eat anything *except* wheat anymore (overwhelmingly in the form of pasta products), so since I’ve largely moved on from candy, maybe we could set up a candy-for-semolina exchange program? They grow some pretty good stuff out there on the western plains, I’ve always heard.
