Bumblebee Cookies for St. Ambrose

This post was written by Catholic Cuisine contributor, Charlotte from Waltzing Matilda

Our tradition for December 7th means that my kitchen is a buzzin', with cookies that is. These were made last year but I am sure this year's hive will look pretty much the same.

To celebrate the patron saint of beekeepers we keep these bees in our tummies! Use your favorite peanut butter cookie dough (or any cookie dough, I imagine), some pretzel twists and sticks and melted chocolate for the stripes. We rolled the dough into balls and flattened them on top of the mini pretzel twist wings then added the antenna and baked them for about 10 minutes. Once they cool, you can pipe the stripes on using a fancy piping bag or just snip off the corner of a ziploc baggie. These are so easy and the kids have a blast making and eating them!
