A Wonderful Christmas Cookie with a message....

This is such a wonderful way to share Christmas cookies with a special message with friends and family. I am going to make these cookies and attach a star cookie cutter along with this recipe to it to share with my neighbors.


A Christmas Star To Lead The Way....

To Jesus on this special day.

Cookie Recipe

1 Cup butter (1 Cup of Peace)

1 Cup white sugar (1 Star to lead them))

3 Eggs (3 Wise Men)

1 Teaspoon vanilla extract (1 Angel)

3 Cups all-purpose flour (3 Cups of faith)

1 teaspoon baking soda (1 Manger)

2 teaspoons cream of tartar (2 parents, Mary and Joseph)

Pre heat oven 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix together all your ingredients.

On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to a 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters.

Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes in pre heated oven.

Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes

I attended a wedding several years ago where there was a Heart Cookie Cutter at each place setting.....attached was a message attached with a lace ribbon. I don't remember the message, but I still have the cookie cutter hanging in my kitchen..the couple has since divorced, but I still have my cookie cutter:)) What a great and simple gift...Happy Holidays

Do you know that my children could tell you the number of home baked cookies they have had out of my kitchen?
I made beautiful Maple Bars, Cinnamon Rolls, Indian Fry Bread and totally messed up every batch of cookies I ever tried to make. When we lived in Timberlane there was a really strange, dysfunctional lady that lived behind me and she made the most amazing zucchini cookies. So I asked her for the recipe.....total disaster and I never tried again. I thought "with her problems, and she makes these great cookies, what chance do I have" and I haven't tried since.
