cooking something inside itself and flavored with itself is so self-referentially satisfying. It's so meta it was practically invented for the internet.
When I was a kid my dad always used to try to get me to eat squash by saying "it's just like candy!" which of course is a lie and irrelevant since I've never had a huge sweet tooth. Also, squash is still nasty, sorry dad!
Now if I had been a pain about fruit, this could have done the trick for sure. I love apples but still, even as an adult I have a hard time eating all the fruit I should. Maybe my husband will carve hearts in them for me.
I know these are simple cookies with peppermint Hershey's Kisses on them but I just couldn't resist posting them, they're so cute! I'm getting into some serious holiday spirit already, a record early cheer from me. I certainly wouldn't turn down a box of these babies!
