I just ran across my Mom's recipe for Holly Cookies. The index card is stained with green food coloring and looks like it has gotten alot of use during her Christmas baking. I did however add one little thing, used butter instead of margarine and added Vanilla Extract. I suppose you could add other flavorings as well like Almond. The original recipe calls for melting the marshmallows and margarine in a double boiler. Enjoy...Happy Holidays...get it??? PS: I took a picture of Mom's original recipe, it brings back GREAT memories.
