Christmas Cookies

I still haven’t gotten to my baking yet. These photos are all cookies my daughter made. Giant snowflakes. This is the week I do a lot of baking for Christmas. My daughter started early. I have only had time to bake some of my Swedish butter cookies. This is a bragging post, sometimes us mom’s need to do that. “Look what my daughter made” should have been the title of this post. All grown up now, and no longer a little girl making messes with mom and her little brother in the kitchen, now she creates pretty cookies all on her own. Just had to share them all with you. Here is the recipe if you want to make some yourself. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas everyone.

1/3 cup shortening

½ cup butter

21/4 cups of flour

¾ cup sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 tablespoons of milk

Bake on un-greased cookie sheet, an inch apart, at 375F for 8-9 minutes. Cool before decorating.

Icing- 1 teaspoon of milk, 1 cup of powdered sugar.

Don’t forget to save some for the neighbors, even the ones you don’t know yet. They are waiting out there this year for you to meet.
