Cathedral Cookies Recipe with Colored Mini Marshmallows

I’m really excited to have Heidi from Mommy Made From Scratch here today sharing her recipe for Cathedral Cookies.  They look so simple and yummy, but also so creative!

I’ve gotten to know Heidi a little bit through her blog and e-mail.  She is an amazing mom of two young children who has taken on the monumental task of learning to cook for them.  I know that my toddler’s eating preferences change on a daily basis.  I applaud any parent who makes the effort to provide healthier, homemade foods for their families.  She has really creative recipes, but she also has some amazing photos.  Just look at how she staged these cookies.  I need to step up my game.  

Heidi, thank you so much for being here today.

Hello! I’m Heidi Zapolski, also known as Mommy Made From Scratch. I’m so happy to have the chance to get to share a recipe today on The Not So Modern Housewife.

I have gotten to know Bonnie a bit through email. I hope to get to the point where I am making more things completely from scratch as Bonnie is more accustomed to doing.

That was the main reason that I began my blog; to learn how to cook without the help of boxed and frozen meals in hopes of feeding my family in a more healthy way.

My kids are 2 and 4 so that is not always easy. They are in a very picky stage of life, but hopefully they will be more willing to try things because they’re being exposed to many different types of food…I hope!

Since it’s Christmastime, Bonnie asked me to share with you a Christmas recipe that symbolizes something to me and my family.

As a kid my mom used to make these cookies called Cathedral Cookies. These are some of my all-time favorite cookies.

Not only do they symbolize Christmas with my family but they also symbolize the reason that my family celebrates Christmas, which is Jesus’ birth.

This year Christmas falls on a Sunday so we’ll be spending Christmas morning at church rather than just Christmas Eve. These cookies are made to look like a stained glass window seen in many churches.

I’m pretty open to anything chocolate and these are packed with chocolate-y goodness! My mom usually makes them with chopped pecans or walnuts but I prefer them without. Feel free to add some if you like. Hope you like them!
