Holiday Cookies

 

These are fun to make.  Use Christmas cookie cutters and make sure to have plenty of different sprinkles to top the colorful frosting on the cookies.

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 tbs cream cheese
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Mix the flour, sugar, and salt together.  Beat the butter into the flour mixture.  Add the cream cheese and vanill until the dough begins to form large clumps.  Knead the dough into one mass.  Chill for at least 20-30 minutes.

Heat the oven to 375.  Using sections, roll out the dough and cut out your cookie shapes.  Place the cookies on a baking sheet (using one of those plastic liners that can bake helps).  Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Continue baking and let the cookies thoroughly cool before frosting.  In fact, we recommend frosting the next day.

To frost the cookies beat the following:

  • 3 tbs whole milk
  • 1 tbs cream cheese

Once mixed combine with 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar.  Beat until thoroughly mixed.  Separate the frosting into bowls and add food coloring of choice.  Frost the cookies and add fun decorating sprinkles.

Saltine Toffee

Beware!  These are delish!  And totally rich!  And very sinful!!

  • First, glaze a cookie sheet or baking pan with butter. 
  • Lay saltine crackers to cover the pan. 
  • On the stove mix 1 cup butter with 1 cup brown sugar.  Once this mixture starts boiling, cookie and stirring for 3 minutes. 
  • Pour this butter/sugar mixture over the saltine crackers and bake at 400 for five minutes.
  • Take them out of the oven and sprinkle the entire pan with chocolate chips or grated chocolate.
  • Put the pan back into the oven for about a minute.  You can turn off the oven.
  • Pull them out and place a walnut or pecan onto each saltine square.
  • Cut and cool immediately.  (This part is important.  If you keep them in the pan, they’ll stick in there and won’t come out.)

These are an easy yet very impressive Christmas cookie!
