Hello new friends. Aren't they just the cutest things you have ever seen? They just look at you and say, "hi. how are ya?" I love makng holiday themed treats!

What you'll need to make these little guys:

Cookies (I used Sour cream cookies: recipe below)
White frosting
Assorted sugar wafers (ours were about 2 1/2 inches long)
Candy corn
Mini chocolate chips
Bran cereal (I used Chow Mein noodles... only cause I had them already)
Chocolate sprinkles

Old-fashioned sour cream cookies


1/2 cup chortening
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 2/3 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup sour cream

heat oven to 350F. mix shortening, sugar, egg and vanilla thoroughly. Measure flour by dipping method or by sifting. Blend dry ingredients; add to sugar mixture alternately with sour cream. Roll out to 1/4 inch thick on well floured pastry cloth. Cut with 2" cutter. place on greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with sugar (or don't if frosting them) bake 8 to 10 minutes.
