    ElizabethKnicely's Note:

    A Christmas tradition at our house. My kids talk about helping me make these all year. To make cookies in the shape of a Christmas Tree, you will need a cookie press. You can also roll out the dough and use a Christmas Tree shaped cookie cutter. The candy cane filling is what makes this cookie special. This recipe makes 2 dozen sandwich style cookies. (The dough should be enough to make 4 dozen individual cookies.)
