Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well. Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.

Use an ornament cookie cutter and dip the top of these cookies in candy coating to create a cute stocking cap for these happy elves.
Combine butter, sugar, egg, orange juice and vanilla in bowl. Beat at medium speed, until creamy. Add flour and baking powder. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed.
Divide dough into thirds. Shape each third into a ball; flatten slightly. Wrap each in plastic food wrap; refrigerate at least 2 hours until firm.
Heat oven to 400°F.
Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-third at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8 to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut with 3-inch round ornament cookie cutter. Place 1-inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 6-8 minutes or until edges just begin to turn lightly browned. Cool completely.
Place candy coating in deep 1-quart saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat 5-8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until melted. Remove from heat.
Dip top one-third of a few cookies at a time into melted coating; shake off excess. Place onto waxed paper. Immediately, before coating hardens, decorate dipped portions to create hats. Repeat with remaining cookies.
Decorate as desired using candies to create eyes, nose, cheeks and mouth. Attach candies to cookies with a dab of melted candy coating. Let stand 15 minutes to allow candy coating to harden.

Made these for a Christmas craft faire and were sold out in no time. The taste was very good and they were easy to make.

Once the temperature drops a few degrees, I’m in full-on fall foods mode. Pumpkin bars, apple crisp, cranberry bread…you name it, I’m making it. However, most of it revolves around sweets. Why doesn’t dinner get a fair chance?
