Perfect for Torah and Tea on Chanukah!
Ideal for a women’s event!
…And absolutely fun for a cup of tea after hosting!
These are easy and fun to make and I can tell you that the options are endless with the many variations of sugars, icing and sprinkles! (Make them match your tea cups!)
All you need is a dreidel cookie cutter and basic cookie dough. Simply cut out your dreidel cookies and using a knife cut a slit in the dough, off center. ( I found that they balanced better this way).
Make sure your ‘slit’ is about 1/4″ wide as it will fill in a bit as the dough bakes. (Try use thin rimmed tea cups or play around with making a bigger slit to accommodate thicker rimmed cups).
Then, simply spread out on a cookie sheet and sprinkle with sugar or sprinkles of your choice and bake!
Line up your tea cups on your coffee table/counter and it will definitely be a (delicious) show stopper when your guests arrive!
These are very cute and remind me of when I was little how my great-grandpa would play dreidels on the floor with me as we would drink tea -like good English men with milk and sugar. These would also be cute if you put names on them. I wonder how they would work if you cut two cookies so they would inter-lock to make a 3-d dreidel. You might have to “sand” the bottom a bit so they could stand up? Thank you for the idea!Â >^,,^< CIndy
