Hello Bloggy Friends,
We have just returned home from our Christmas travels and in light of that I have no inspired prose to post today. However, I thought I would share my absolute favorite Christmas cookie recipe. I would have a picture for you but I haven't made them yet. It's on my to-do list for Christmas Eve.
Unfortunately, I am the only one in my family who loves the cookies but maybe I will find a fellow lover of the Christmas wreath cookie among one of my new friends.
I will back on Friday with a love letter to the king. I hope and pray everyone has a safe and wonderful Christmas. May each of you enjoy your time with family and friends and create memories that will last a lifetime.
Christmas Wreath Cookies
1 cup softened unsalted sweet cream butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs separated
2 cups sifted flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups chopped nuts (I usually get away with 1 cup)
maraschino cherries or chocolate kisses
preheat oven to 375
Cream butter and sugar.
mix in egg yolks, flour, salt and vanilla
Form 1" balls, dip in egg whites and then chopped nuts
Bake on greased cookie sheet for five minutes. After five minutes, use thumb or back of spoon to smoosh cookie in the middle. Place cherry in the middle and bake for 10 more minutes. (if using chocolate kisses, put them in the middle after total baking time)
Again, Merry Christmas!
