Hey there everyone! I’m Abbey here from The Cards We Drew and I’m so thrilled to be here on Amy’s gorgeous blog today. I’ve been a reader of her’s for a while now, so it’s pretty great to be here sharing my Poinsettia Christmas Cookie recipe with you!



With Christmas right around the corner, I’ve been scouring the web for cookie ideas, then I remembered a fun cookie recipe that my mom had in her recipe box that I thought would be a great one to make and share with you today.

Poinsettia Cookie Recipe #SwellNoel


3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened

1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 (4 oz) box raspberry flavored gelatin

1 egg

2 cups flour

2 tablespoons yellow candy sprinkles

In a large bowl, beat butter, sugar, vanilla, gelatin, and egg with mixer on medium speed. Once mixed, on low speed add in flour.

Shape dough into 1 1/4 inch balls and cover and refrigerate for one hour.

Heat oven to 375 degrees and on an ungreased cookie sheet, place balls about 2 inches apart. With a sharp knife, make six cuts on top of each ball about 3/4 of the way through to make six wedges. Spread wedges apart slightly to form flower petals (cookies with separate and flatten as they bake). Sprinkle yellow candy sprinkles into center of cookie.

cut six slits into the cookie 34 of the way through

Bake 9-11 minutes or until set and edges begin to brown. Cool 2-3 minutes and transfer to cooling rack. This recipe makes 3 dozen cookies.

The dough is really fun for little hands to play with and my son enjoyed helping me roll them into balls.

    Hello Amy!
    My name is Brad Davidson, I live in Athens, Georgia and I build furniture. Will you feature my newest table on your blog please?

    I am trying to gain some exposure before I take a huge risk and leave my job to build furniture. I like what I do at work, but I day dream of building new ideas I have. I have been building tables and shelves for almost two years and I get the biggest thrill out of making new furniture look old and charming. I also like newer tends like chevron and rustic luxe.

    My newest table just might get me some notoriety I need. Look at “the Morris table” on my website and decide for yourself. Thanks for your time. registered & protected
