Pretty reds for Ruby Tuesday …Rednesday





I have bought these dishes at TJ Max. Candy cane tree I had for years

Ornaments in glass urn at Kmart. Linen table cloth and gold platter

at The Christmas Tree Shoppe..


Here is that new Christmas cookies I had to make.













Hershey peppermint candy cane blossom cookies.


  • 48 HERSHEY'S KISSES Brand Candy Cane Mint Candies
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • Red or green sugar crystals, granulated sugar or powdered sugar


  1. 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Remove wrappers from candies.
  2. 2 Beat butter, granulated sugar, egg and vanilla in large bowl until well blended. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; add alternately with milk to butter mixture, beating until well blended.
  3. 3 Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in red sugar, granulated sugar, powdered sugar or a combination of any of the sugars. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  4. 4 Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned and cookie is set. Remove from oven; cool 2 to 3 minutes. Press a candy piece into center of each cookie. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. About 4 dozen cookies.

Actually my first batch I got 47 cookies because I had messed up. The second batch I did it right and I got almost 5 dozen cookies. So, depend how it come out.'

I fell in love with this cookie recipe and I will make these next year. It is a thumb up recipe.

Those polka dots ribbons came with the dishes. I got them just in time and It is a bargain. I would probably pay more at flea markets. These looks vintage.
