Our neighbor is celebrating Hanukkah with her family right now. I saw the ideas for these cookies in Family Fun Magazine (while at the Doctors office with my youngest ;) and though they would be a fun gift for her young family...
They were SUPER simple to make! Just snip off two corners of a Newton cookie (I used Strawberry vs. Fig, because I like the taste better), break a skinny pretzel in half and gently push the broken edge into the jelly part of the cookie on the opposite side of the point. Whip up a small batch of butter-cream icing, and pipe on the decor. Voila! (I googled the 'symbols on a dreidel' to help make sure the Hebrew letters on the cookies even half-way resembled a real dreidel.)
