I had THE MOST FUN making these cookies. There's a lot less pressure to make cookies that are supposed to look ugly.
These are easy-peasy, can't-mess-them-up, no-wrong-way-to-make-them, uses-a-shortcut Ugly Christmas Sweater cookies.
(Wow. That was a lot of hyphens.)
First, you'll need some pre-made icing decor. Find these at Target, WalMart, Michaels, etc. etc. There are so many to choose from!
Make up your favorite cut-out cookies. I used the vanilla almond cut-outs that I make for almost everything.

I'm on a coconut kick. It seems to happen about this time every year. Maybe because coconut is the closest thing to snow that I'm going to see each winter.

There are so many holiday treats at Trader Joe's, it's almost overwhelming. Buy last year's favorites or buy what's new? Or buy them all? Yes, that sounds like a plan...and also a way to go up a jean size.
Anyhoo. Today, we review Trader Joe's Tartufi Dolce all' Amaretto. TJ's describes these as "sweet amaretto flavored truffles with crumbled amaretti cookies and Italian hazelnuts." Made in Italy.
A 6-ounce tin of individually wrapped truffles costs $5.99.
