If you could only make one kind of Christmas cookie this season what would it be?
I came up w/this idea from our cookie swap @ work next week. Thought it would be neat to share your fav Christmas cookie recipe and why its your fav. I will start w/my Grandmothers recipe, it reminds me of her everytime I make them.
This was my grandmother’s recipe
1/2 stick of butter
1 cup flour
1 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp salt
2 Tbsp sugar
1 cup finely chopped nuts
Cram butter and sugar, add vanilla and egg, blend, add flour, salt, and nuts. This can all be done in food processor or mixer in that order. Put dough in refrig and chill until firm. Roll into 3/4" inch balls and bake at 350 til golden. About 12 min. more or less. Cool. When still slightly warm, roll in confectioners sugar.
I use a mixture of nuts, or whatever I have on hand. Today it was pecans, walnuts, and almond. And sometimes we add Cocoa (we don’t measure just do it to our taste) for Chocolate flavored ones.
