Recipe: Christmas “Circus” Cookies (Cooking Channel)

by Nealey on December 14, 2012

Do you remember Mother’s Circus Animal Cookies, those completely amazing pink and white frosted cookies of your youth. (Wait, how old are you?)

I LOVED those preservative-laden treats, so much so that I cried when they went out of business, cheered with glee when they returned, and pouted when they didn’t sell them in Georgia. I took matters in my own hands and decided to make my own. Even better, I dressed them up in holiday clothes—now they’re almost too cute to eat! (Almost.)

Hop on over to Cooking Channel to get my recipe for Christmas Circus Cookies.

Thank you thank you thank you! I love these as a kid — they handed them out each week in the church nursery, which is how far back I’ve adored them. Can’t wait to make your version and share them with my kids– they HAVE to be better for us than Mother’s!

Allison—I don’t know if they are better than ‘Mother’s’ but they are pretty darn good ;)

OMG, I love circus cookies. I have sworn off cookies for the rest of the reason, but these might be to much to resist. They are so cute!
