This is really cool and it is so much easier to make then you would think. Use a set of circle cookie cutters that has multiple sizes. Make a sugar cookie recipe like the one below:Make a good tasting green sugar cookie icing like: and liberally coat the tops of all cookies. While icing is wet place cookies in succession from largest to smallest making sure to gently place one on top of the other without squishing the cookies beneath to avoid making the icing ooze out of the sides. Finish the design with red hots and pipe icing for garland of your color choice.
I have had this recipe for some time and sorta resisted trying them. I tried them last night and let me tell you they were very very good! They had a mild chewiness – I did not add rains to half of this batch and both were very good! You would think since these are made with banana that it would taste like banana – but it only carried a minor flavor of banana. You can make them with whole milk instead of almond milk and you can cut the cinnamon in half or eliminate it all together. I added 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips to half this recipe and they came out perfect. I imagine you could substitute all or part of the raisins with chopped nut or dried cranberries. I highly recommend this recipe!
