Ingredients

  • 1 cup softened unsalted butter
  • 1 1/8 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • Green food coloring
  • Red hots
  • Green fondant
  • Green Betty Crocker decorating frosting

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 325° and line a baking sheet with a piece parchment paper
  • Use a hand or stand mixer to mix your butter and sugar together until light and fluffy
  • Then mix in your vanilla extract and egg and green food coloring a little at a time until you have the color green you'd like
  • Now mix in your flour and salt
  • Knead the dough in your hands until it starts sticking together
  • Lay down a piece of parchment paper then flour a rolling pin and roll your dough out (think of a thick cookie)
  • Use a large scalloped circle cookie cutter to cut out the outside of your wreaths and then use your smallest scalloped circle to cut out the inside
  • Bake your cookies for 10 minutes and then let cool
  • While your cookies are cooling, roll out your green fondant in between two pieces of parchment paper and use your tiny diamond to cut out two diamonds per cookie
  • Place a dab of frosting into the left corner of each cookie and stick on your two diamond fondant pieces
  • Now dab a small amount of frosting on the bottom of three red hots and onto the top of your fondant
  • Spread out a very thin layer of frosting onto the top of your wreath and top with sprinkles
