Happy Holidays To You and Yours, (2009) Tis’ the season is here already! My how time flies by. this is what happens when you are having fun. Might as well enjoy it, we never know how time we have here.
I usually bake Shortbread cookies, Fruitcake and Tarts. Did you know, that I cannot find anywhere here in Sedona, pastry lined tart shells? I was really hoping to make some Mincement and Butter tarts for Christmas. oh, well..next time. I guess they could be pies..with tarts you can eat more.
In remembrance of my mom, here’s her favorite Shortbread Cookie recipe.
1 c of butter
1/2 c of Icing sugar
1 egg yolk
1 3/4 c of flour
Preheat oven to 325 degrees
Soften butter, stir in sugar, nutmeg and egg yolk. Add a little flour a little at a time. Roll out on a floured board and cut with a cookie cutter. Sprinkle with sparkling decorations. My mom used to put cut cherries on top before baking. Bake for 20 minutes. Yield 3 dozen cookies.
We will all miss her this Christmas..
May you share your rich blessings this Holiday Season! Thank you, for sharing time with us!
