12 Days of Scrumptious Holiday Cookies: Day 6

Shin Newtons

Shin Newtons—Dreidel Cookies for Hanukkah

These Shin Newtons are a perfect cookie for celebrating Hanukkah. Made with three store-bought ingredients (fig newtons, pretzel sticks, and frosting) all you need to do is assemble and decorate your dreidel. A great project for kids, including in the classroom.

To make the dreidel cookies

Prep time: 5 mins, longer if you want to create elaborate designs

Ingredients

  • Fig Newtons
  • Thin pretzel sticks
  • Icing

Description

  1. Cut one side of the newton on either corner to create a V (the dreidel's point).
  2. On the opposite side, stick a pretzel stick into the middle of the newton (the dreidel handle).
  3. Use the icing to decorate! That's it!

About This Blog

There's nothing artificial in these blog posts from New Jersey's hardest-working women. Where to go, what to do, and how to do it—with kids—are all part of the mix.

Meet Our Bloggers!

Editor Judy Grover is the mom of two rambunctious boys, who, she admits, completely run the household. Like this "jokey" line admitting her feelings of parental inadequacy, her posts focus on the joys and challenges -- in the rawest, "real mom" way -- of raising her toddlers into considerate, thoughtful men in the face of demands from both career and peers.

Essex County Real Mom Anna Sandler lives happily ever after with her Jersey-raised husband and three NYC-born children in the land of jug handles and disco fries. She loves baking and crafting with her kids, even if everything they make doesn't turns out Pinterest-perfect. Anna has never met a holiday she doesn't want to celebrate, and enjoys sharing ideas for everyday fun (indoor beach party, anyone?), as well as how to commemorate bigger moments from birthdays to first days of school.

Mercer County Real Mom Lauren Kim is a writer and the editor of mom blog and home décor website, MomHomeGuide.com. When she is not spending time with her children and spouse, she loves crafting and tackling various DIY projects around the house. To see more of Lauren Kim’s favorite pins, visit her Mom Home Guide Pinterest Board. Follow her on Facebook for more on her favorite craft and home décor finds.

Middlesex County Real Mom Renée Sagiv Riebling is a mom of two who never irons (Quick! Grab it out of the dryer while it's still hot instead!) or cooks anything that requires dicing, but she does love sweet sticky faces and family outings (check out her Jersey Jaunts column for ideas). She understands all too well about the minutiae of mothering, and her blog posts focus on parenting pointers--from experts or experience.
