After Christmas it is easy to a case of the blues.

Causes:

  1. 1. No more presents
  2. 2. Taking down the Christmas tree.
  3. 3. Eating the last Peanut Blossom Cookie (the last straw for me).

Treatment:


I like to take my mind off things with some more baking. These pink cookies taste almost like the Christmas classic.

However, the bright pink color makes them perfect for Valentines Day, Bachelorette Parties, and even birthdays.

Use a regular Hershey’s Kiss, Cherry Cordial, or Cookies and Cream Kiss for a slightly different look.

Use your favorite sugar cookie recipe instead of peanut butter dough.
