These are great cookies to bring to any holiday party – starting at Thanksgiving and ending with New Year’s Eve! We often use this recipe to make different cookies for each day or each few days of Advent by creating different shapes or adding different flavors or toppings.
These are so simple – a child could make them – and they are great when you are low on groceries! In fact, that is why we made them last week. We were in a snowstorm and I wanted something sweet and warm to eat but I didn’t have ingredients to make any comfort food!
So here they are – my favorite cookies!
1/2 lb. butter
1/2 cup confectioners sugar (we used organic)
1/4 tsp. baking powder
2 cups of flour (they are nicer with just white unbleached but I used WW/White mix and they were still yummy – and just a little more hearty).
1/4 tsp. salt
1. Cream butter, gradually add sugar
2. Beat well
3. Mix flour, salt, Baking Powder and add to above
4. Roll out with pin or press into mold
5. Cut and prick with a fork (before baking)
6. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes
These are also nice holiday cookies because you can cut them in shapes (but don’t take them from the pan, they will separate as they cook) but you don’t have to do all that work you do with sugar cookies…so think Valentine’s Day, etc…
