Christmas is almost here so I thought I’d keep this blog short and “sweet.”
Do you have all your cookies baked and ready for the holidays?
I’m not much of a baker, but around the holidays I try my hand at making a few cookies. We usually try to have at least two or three different types on hand for people dropping by to enjoy.
I thought I’d share one of the recipes we use. It is a “Tea Cake” cookie recipe and the cookies can be eaten plain or with various types of topping such as chocolate icing or sugar sprinkles.
2 Cups of Sugar
½ Cup of Crisco
1 Tablespoon of Milk
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Flavoring
2 ¼ Cups of Flour
Beat sugar, eggs and Crisco together. Then add milk, vanilla flavoring and flour. Mix together well.
Mixture needs to be refrigerated for an hour. Then take mixture and roll out and cut out using flour to keep from sticking.
Bake at 375 degrees on a barely greased cookie sheet for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
It’s always funny to me how one cookie can have so many different names. You may know this recipe by another name, if so let me know.
Are recipes something that are passed down from generation to generation in your family? When you give someone a recipe, do you include it’s history with it? Do you tell the person receiving the recipe where the recipe came from and when?
Do you leave cookies and milk out for Santa each year? If so, what type of cookies do you leave?
Be sure to leave a few carrots for the reindeer.
