It's Friday and time for some fun in the kitchen! Katy McKenna is sharing a recipe with us today. Thank you, Katy!
Here is my favorite Christmas cookie recipe, which my mother learned from her Girl Scout leader, circa 1940. The basic recipe makes a dozen cookies, but I typically quadruple the recipe.
1 stick butter
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 heaping tablespoons powdered sugar
Place softened (not melted) butter and all ingredients in mixing bowl. Remove your rings, as this is about to get messy! Use your hands to thoroughly mix the dough, which will seem a bit dry to the touch. Form into 1" balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 325 degrees for 10--12 minutes. If the dough is dry enough, the cookies should remain ball shaped, rather than spreading. While still warm, remove from cookie sheet and roll cookies in additional powdered sugar. These freeze well, so make as many as your heart desires! Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.....
