LOOK - Cookies for Me
I baked these lovely little cookies this morning as a reward for going out in the snow storm AGAIN - last measurement was 9 inches deep and that was 11:00 this morning - still coming down hard and heavy. Enough of that on to the COOKIES !
This is a very easy but very yummy cookie.
ROYAL TEA COOKIES
1 cup softened butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla and 1 teaspoon almond extract
2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
Jam or Jelly (any favor that you wish)
Beat butter and sugar slowly until creamy. Add extracts and beat till well blended. Add dry ingred's slowly. Shape into 1 inch balls on a greased sheet. Make a well in the center of the dough ball but do not go to far or the Jam will run out. Place jam or jelly in the center and bake for 15 to 20 minutes at 325 degrees. Makes about 2 and 1/2 dozen.
I can not wait for my cup of hot herbal tea and a couple of these cookies. The cookie on the right is Fig and on the left is Orange Marmalade ENJOY
