Dad’s Favorite Star Cookies Recipe
Star cookies are a favorite Christmas cookie. These are not very sweet. ZM and LC like to sprinkle these with colored sugar before we bake them.
These are a fun and easy way to fulfill some of the Cub Scout cooking requirements.

These are a family recipe. As kids we called them “snowball cookies” because that is what they look like – small ball shaped cookies rolled in powdered sugar.
My kids always enjoyed making holiday treats. To them, if it has a special shape, that makes baking extra fun. So these candy cane cookies are a good Christmas treat to make with Cub Scouts. They don’t have a strong mint flavor, but are more like a sugar cookie.
My sons also enjoy making these meringue cookies. They are called forgotten cookies because you put them in a hot oven, turn it off, and then forget about them until the next morning.
