Favorite Things Friday #5: Easy Treats

Holiday Pretzel Treats, from my favorite source, Family Fun. Easy to make, even easier to eat. I love that you can make as few or as many as you want, although when it comes to these, more is always better!
Spritz cookies. You do need a cookie press to make them, but it's so much easier than rolling and cutting dough. My mom always made these when I was little, and my dad, without fail, would walk through the kitchen and say "Ready. Aim. Cookie!" He's one of those dads.

I don't do complicated recipes this time of year. Too many other things to do. My baking has to be quick. Most cookies are in bar form. I will be making layered mint brownies this weekend, also from Family Fun. I love those because even though they look really complicated, they are easy to make, and soooo good.
