“Christmas Cookie Recipe!”
If you like cookies – here is the recipe for a delicious Christmas Cookie.
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
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 –
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!
