Cookie Exchange Blog Hop

Welcome to this holiday cookie exchange hosted by my Freaky Friday blogging buddies where we will be sharing some fabulous holiday treats!

The premise of Freaky Friday blog hop is based on the Disney movie staring Jamie Lee Curtis, Mark Harmon, and Lindsey Lohan.  

Just in case you aren’t familiar with the movie, it’s a comedy about a mom and her teenage daughter that have a hard time getting along, so they switch places so they can walk in each other’s shoes.  

Can you imagine doing that?

The Freaky Friday for bloggers is a fun way for us to take a closer look at each other’s recipes and pick one to try for ourselves.  

We’ve each been assigned to a page and have kept our swap a secret until now!

For our last swap I shared this delicious Jalapeno Popper Chicken with Bacon recipe.  This time we were given instructions to find something that you can add to a cookie tray for the holidays.

Platter Talk’s Christmas Cookie

Well, I hope you already follow Platter Talk, but just in case you don’t let me introduce Dan and Scott the gents behind the camera and creators of these Holiday Wonton Kisses!

Dan and Scott are raising a large family of boys (6!), so you can only imagine the variety of recipes that they have in their Christmas cookie collection.  

I kept gravitating towards savory recipes like oven-fried buttermilk chicken and stuffed cabbage all while thinking, “focus and pick a treat!

These Holiday Wonton Kisses won out because I thought they are genius treat for busy families, and after tasting them these will be on my cookie tray forever!

Ingredients for Easy Christmas Cookies

  • Pre-made pie crust
  • Chocolate candy like kisses or Christmas bells
  • Jimmies for decorating

The original recipe is made with chocolate kisses. I decided to use chocolate peppermint bells instead of kisses in the center.

Chocolate and peppermint tastes fabulous with the pie crust dough!  

Add any fun jimmies or colorful sprinkles for an extra festive treat.

My treats didn’t keep an upright wonton shape, but that may be based on the brand of pie crust that is used.  

The little square shape that theses baked into is adorable!

    1. Oh I love the idea of adding a Rolo! You might need to adjust the size of the dough and the caramel may seep out, but that would be ok for me. Yes, I have used Pillsbury pie dough.

  1. Thank you for your stunning rendition of our recipe. I love the substitution you made and now I know who to call upon to take my food to the next level! Fantastic job here and thank you, once again!
