Hush, hush, a Christmas mouse has turned into a scrumptious cookie right inside your house! Our Christmas mouse cookie recipe, inspired by Apron Strings, will be the most welcome mice you ever bring to your family’s holiday dessert table.
These whimsical little treats are a yummy cream cheese, cinnamon-kissed cookie that is transformed into an adorably edible mouse with sliced almonds as nibble-worthy ears, mini chocolate chips for eyes, red hots for a warm nose, and a red licorice rope as a whip of a tail. This is the Christmas cookie that will make your family and friends pounce like cats to make sure their tasty cookie doesn’t get away.
