Candle Cookies

Happy First week of Advent! 

I'm sharing these darling candle cookies that I saw a picture of as I thought they'd be cute to do with kids.  

Aren't these a darling project ?  They come together so quickly, too, using Pinwheel cookies and Pirouette's.

My Cup of Christmas teacup was given to me from my friend, Janne, and I just love it!

I made the tea cozy to coordinate with the teacup.  

We are having this Christmas Tea with the cookie candles.  I still haven't found the perfect Christmas tea blend, but I'm always searching.

My youngest daughter-in-law gave me this plant several years ago that was given to her as a gift, knowing that I love plants.  It has grown so much.  I do keep it outside Spring through Fall.  

These little Santas were from my daughter years ago, when we started collecting them.  The funny thing about the top Santa is the calendar that he's holding says 1996.  Harper, a few years ago, took a piece of popcorn from the bucket and ate it before I could stop her!

My mantle looks so pretty at night.

Candle Cookies

I saw a picture of these and had to try them!


  • Pirouette cookies (mine were from Pepperidge Farm), or any round wafer type cookie
  • Pinwheel Cookies (mine were from Nabisco)
  • Sliced or blanched whole almonds
  • Chocolate to melt to adhere the almond to the top and to keep the "candle" in place (I used white candy melts)
  • Powdered sugar and a little water to make the "wax"


  1. Cut the Pirouette cookies to the size that you want
  2. Melt some chocolate or candy melts to hold the "candle" in place in the center of the pinwheel cookie.
  3. Attach a sliced almond or whole blanched almond to the top of the "candle" with a little melted chocolate.
  4. Mix a little powdered sugar with some water to make an icing to drizzle for the "wax".
  5. Enjoy you candle cookies!


Sometimes you can find these cookies at Aldi.

Thank you for your visit!  xo
