  • Mound mixture onto a baking sheet lined with waxed paper; spread into a 10-inch ring. (For smaller gift-giving wreaths, make three separate mounds and shape into 6 1/2-inch rings. Or, for traditional haystack cookies, drop mixture by rounded tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheet.) If desired, garnish with red candies.

  • Chill 30 minutes or until very firm. Carefully peel waxed paper away from cooled wreath. If desired, tie a red ribbon around wreath for decoration. Slice with a serrated knife. Store in the refrigerator.

To Store:

Place the wreath(s) or cookies in an airtight container or large resealable plastic bag(s). Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze up to 1 month.
