The Christmas Cookie edition.
So the kitchen is a disaster area for the umpteenth time this week because of the following. In no particular order....
1) Anise cookies (these are little flat cookies that are delicious! A family tradition and one of my most favorites)
3) Peanut Butter balls
4) Almond butter balls (same recipe as number 3, but since my sister is allergic to peanuts, I thought I'd try an almond variety)
(*Note - the chocolate on #3 and #4 is hardening around me as I write. I think there are about 6 dozen total!)
5) Pecan tassies (yummy - with a cream cheese crust)
6) Cream Cheese Dreams
7) Pecan snowballs
8) Old-fashioned sugar cookies (These delicious things pretty much melt in your mouth. A college friend's recipe. Yum!)
I have a few more to make - Raspberry Stripes, "S" cookies (your basic buttery spritz cookie, but my Granny always made them in the shape of S's), , Thumbprints and Sugar cookie cut-outs. Oh, and Peppermint bark! Then I'm done!
I could really use a nice mug of tea right now and any of the above... but I'll refrain. For a little bit. A very little bit.
Happy Friday, everyone!
Here's the recipe, Lisa!
1/2 cup Butter
1/2 cup Canola Oil
1/2 cup Granulated sugar
1/2 cup Powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Cream of Tartar
1/2 tsp Salt
2 cups Flour
Extra granulated sugar for dipping
Cream Butter & Sugars. Add eggs & Vanilla. Mix dry ingredients, and add to wet. (It says to sift the dry ingredients but I never do!)
Roll tsp. of dough into a ball, then in granulated sugar. Press down on greased cookie sheet with glass dipped in sugar.
Bake 10-12 minutes at 375 until light golden brown.
(ps - they are really good with a nice cup of tea!)
