12 Days of Scrumptious Holiday Cookies: Day 6
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
- Fig Newtons
- Thin pretzel sticks
- Cut one side of the newton on either corner to create a V (the dreidel's point).
- On the opposite side, stick a pretzel stick into the middle of the newton (the dreidel handle).
