Do you have cookies ready for Santa tonight?  Well, I didn’t until we made a stop to visit Lee’s Aunt Mattie Lou this morning!  Mattie Lou reminded me of a recipe I had given her for Snicker Doodle cookies.  She said, “I made that recipe and they turned out great!”

Mattie

She had them all packaged up in cute little brown paper bags with little cutouts of snowmen, Christmas bears and such.  I only slightly remember even giving her the recipe and I was pretty sure I had never blogged it.

I remember making Snicker Doodle cookies for a 4-H project a kazillion years ago.  I’m not sure I have made them since.  But I have been wrong in not keeping these on hand for family and friends.

These really are melt-in-your-mouth wonderful.  My Chief  Santa could hardly wait until we got home to dig into them.  I said, “wait!  I need a picture first.”  He smiled and sighed, “of course you do.”  :)

These are super easy to make and Santa will love them!  It’s not too late for this year and be sure and put them on your cookie list for New Year’s eve munching!

Merry Baking!

Recipe type: Cookies
Ingredients
Cookie:
  • 2¾ cups (360 grams) all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup (227 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1½ cups (300 grams) granulated white sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Coating:
  • ⅓ cup (66 grams) granulated white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Cookies: In a large bowl whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder.
  2. In the bowl of your electric mixer (or with a hand mixer), beat the butter and sugar until smooth (about 2 to 3 minutes). Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Beat in the vanilla extract. Add the flour mixture and beat until you have a smooth dough. If the dough is soft, cover and refrigerate until firm (about one to two hours).
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (190 degrees C) and place rack in the center of the oven. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  4. Shape the dough into 1 inch (2.5 cm) round balls.
  5. Coating: In a large shallow bowl mix together the sugar and cinnamon.
  6. Roll the balls of dough in the cinnamon sugar and place on the prepared pan, spacing about 2 inches (5 cm) apart. Then, using the bottom of a glass, gently flatten each cookie to about ½ inch (1.5 cm) thick.
  7. Bake the cookies for about 8 - 10 minutes, or until they are light golden brown and firm around the edges. The centers of the cookies will still be a little soft. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool.
  8. Makes about 4-5 dozen cookies.
Notes
Can store in an airtight container, at room temperature, for about 10 - 14 days.
Makes 4 to 5 dozen cookies.

WW Almond cookie
Have you ever heard the term “you can’t out give a giver?”  That saying totally describes my neighbor and friend Gaye. Isn’t she beautiful?  Imagine this — she is even more beautiful “inside” and her love of God is unsurpassed.

Gaye
Recently I baked some fresh strawberry cupcakes (recipe coming soon) and couldn’t wait to take them to Gaye and her family. But, as is usual, before I could take them down the road she showed up at my door with these outstanding Whole-wheat almond butter sandwich cookies! Gaye saw the recipe in the April copy of Living magazine and knew they would be a perfect treat for her family. You can find the recipe on Martha Stewart’s website here.

ww almond butter cookieCan you just taste the crunchy, buttery almonds?  I can and I did!  The best part is these cookies aren’t overly sweet.  Actually not too sweet at all, but packed full of taste!

Thank you Gaye and happy baking!
Blessings, Catherine

John 15:12-15

English Standard Version (ESV)

“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command you. 15 No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.
