Cute Piggy Cookies

These piggy cookies are so cute and easy to make. They are perfect for a birthday party, bake sale, potluck or any fun social gathering! #WomenLivingWell #cookies #pigs

Janelle is getting Comfy In the Kitchen again! She says “I found this wonderful recipe in a Taste of Home magazine. I decided to make them for my son’s school picnic and the children loved them! Hearing their giggles was worth every step! Now, I am asked to make these little cuties every year.”

(I give my children a cookie, a spoon of frosting, and the toppings on the side and let them have fun making their own.)

Make your dough (as directed) and scoop into Tablespoons onto an un-greased cookie sheet

Bake @ 375 for 10-12 mins or until edges are lightly browned

Cool on racks

Start doing your “prep work” by cutting strawberry wafers into quarters then cutting them horizontally (these will be be the piggy ears)

Slice marshmallow in half

Use the “sticky” side of the marshmallow to place butterscotch chips- I did not poke holes as directed, I simply pushed them in- (This is the piggy snout)

Make your frosting as directed using powdered sugar, butter, milk, vanilla and red food coloring

Mix Well

Frost cooled cookies

Add the snout
