Hi! Are you ready to view some yummy cookies?
It's that time again, time for Fill The Cookie Jar.
This months theme is: Christmas Cookies.
I chose to make a cookie that could probably be made all year long but I generally only make them at Christmas time. They are a favorite of mine and I have been known to "over indulge" and eat most of the batch myself which is why I only make them about once or twice a year.
Here is my cookie:
These are very rich, buttery cookies with a wonderful creamy like frosting.
They are a little messy to make but so worth it in my opinion.
1 Cup Soft Butter (or Margarine)
1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
2 1/4 Cups Sifted Flour
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup chopped nuts. Most recipes for this cookie use walnuts but I substitute Pecans since I don't like walnuts.
Cream butter and sugar. Add the remaining ingredients. Chill (although I've been known to just roll mine without chilling the dough.) The dough will be crumbly but once you roll it, it will hold it's shape. I slightly press mine down so they are not balls.
Bake @ 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes
Immediately roll in more powdered sugar and cool. I roll mine twice so you get a thicker layers of the frosting.
Since I missed Novembers cookies I'm including them here as I wanted to share them.
I found recipe for these cookies HERE: I changed the nuts again to Pecans and in place of raisins I used Craisins instead. Made them a little more "Thanksgiving" with the craisins in my opinion.
