Holiday Cookie Recipe Exchange!

Happy Holidays to all of you! I love to bake during the holidays. It is a tradition in my family, I have great memories from when I was growing up. We had a schedule on the bulletin board so everyone knew what their jobs where for the baking process. We boxed them and passed them out to friends and family. I still do that with my daughter and I love to give out cookies to our friends. I am hoping you might share some recipes on your blogs so we can all try each others treats. I am going to start with cut-out sugar cookies. They do take a little extra work and time, but it is so worth it and these are delicious.

Sugar Cookies:
1 cup softened butter
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almond extract
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp. baking soda

Mix together and form dough into a ball. Cover tightly and refrigerate for 2 or 3 hours to get it firm. I use a combination of powdered sugar and flour to roll them out in. I take a handful of dough and roll out and use my favorite cookie cutters. Keep the dough covered when you are rolling out the cookies. Don't let it dry out.
Place them on a cookie sheet and use colored sugar or sprinkles to decorate them.
Bake for 8-10 minutes until the bottoms are lightly browned


I love these cookies, they are so pretty in a gift box and they are so good and melt in your mouth. Sometimes(when I am patient enough) I leave them plain for baking and frost and decorate them. I use a sugar substitute as my husband is diabetic and they taste just as good.
God bless you all and go bake some cookies!

Yes they look very pretty and thought of not touching or eating them. It will look nice on colorful boxes with pretty ribbons, Anne.

Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Wonderful!! I am so looking forward to baking and giving baked goods this year!! Thanks for my first thing to work on!! One question...can these be frozen?? I tend to bake/freeze until I have a few different types of cookies together and then distribute!

Thanks so much!I will be getting a cookie recipe up in the next couple of days!!

JackDaddy said...

Those cookies look great! Home-made cookies taste so much better than the store bought ones!

Lily Robinson said...

Yum! Christmas cookies! I'll have to dig out my recipe for Pistachio cookies and send it to you. I nicknamed them lead-belly cookies. It's easy to eat too many!

Hi Anne,

Hope you holiday preparations are going well. Thanks so much for the kind words on the awards post. I am so glad we met here and I treasure our friendship. Your posts are always refreshing and uplifting.

Awards are so hard to give out and I have been trying to come up with some way to deal with them. I got the idea from one of your awards post and took it a step farther. So it was yours to begin with, I'll probably continue to write them up like this.

I posted a cookie recipe last night on The Road to Here, I had hoped to do it with photos but ran out of time.

Wishing you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving. Give sassy Sasha a hug from me.

Love,
Judy

[b]Description[/b]

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
[b][/b]
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
