This year I had a chance to make lots of cookies. Here is our all time favorite called cream wafers. They are a sandwich cookie frosted with pink and green frosting.
These are rolled, cut, dipped in sugar, and baked in the oven. You can get the recipe here. My cookies are the original version from Betty Crocker's Cookie Cookbook that a friend gave to me back in the 1970's.
Here is another recipe I did. This one was new. I love to make snowflake cookies but this recipe is out of this world delicious. I kid you not. The dough is rolled and cut with varying shapes of cutters I have in my collection.
Some were frosted with Royal Icing in plain white and some tinted ever so slightly with blue Royal Icing that was thinned enough to spread.
The decorations were piped on the snowflakes and some glitter sugar was sprinkled on them to make them festive. The recipe used is here. I will definitely be making these again next year. They were light and not to sweet and so pretty. I also made Hershey's Dark Chocolate Chip, Pecan Tassies,and Betty Crocker's Almond Thumbprint Cookies. Last but not least I made Baklava which I make every year for the Holiday. This year I thought my baking was the best ever. Feel free to try these awesome recipes. I highly recommend them.
