“Christmas Cookie Recipe!”

 

If you like cookies – here is the recipe for a delicious Christmas Cookie.

Ingredients

1  cup soft butter                                                         2 ¼ cup flour

½ cup confectioner’s sugar                                   ¼ tsp. salt

1   tsp.  Vanilla                                                             ¾  cup chopped nuts

1    Cup confectioner’s sugar for rolling cookies in 

Preparation

Beat butter and vanilla until smooth.

Combine the dry ingredients together –

stir  into butter mixture just until blended – 

 Mix in walnuts –     

Chill batter for at least an hour.

Preheat oven to  400  degrees —

 Roll batter  into one-inch balls and place on an ungreased baking sheet.  – 

 Bake  10-12  minutes.

Have your powder sugar in a bowl – I use two slotted spoons to take  hot cookies from   the hot cookie sheet and roll in the powder sugar  –while hot  – doing two hot cookies at a time – and  then put on serving dish –

When…Cool! –       

Depending on when you will serve cookies – you might want to roll cookies… In the powder sugar  – one more time ?

While making these “Christmas Cookies” was also making a cake  – and then went to make my own “Butter Cream Frosting”  as… I did not have “Whipping Cream”  – – so I tried something different and everybody had to have seconds on the cake…  just because the icing was so good! 

The general recipe for icing…  that I use calls for:

1 cup butter and I whip that till it is nice and light and creamy – – then I add 2 cups of powder sugar – continue whipping till creamy – and adding almost 2 tablespoons vanilla – and for  the final ingredient  – 3 tablespoons whipping cream –

and since I did not have  whipping cream   – went to the freezer and put 3 tablespoons  of  “COOL WHIP”  in…. and continued for  another minute  – spread that on the cake and decorated to looked like a  beautiful “Christmas Wreath”  with some  very colorful sprinkles on top  – 

So far, best cake ever!
