Happy Saturday Cookie Peeps.
I am not sure if you heard,
but my neck of the wood got a little show.
Well at little snow if you think
11 inches in one day a little snow.
So...with so much snow, I have been stuck in the
house for two days now!
Stuck in the house to me means
baking and watching Happy Days all day
on the Hallmark Channel.
Yesterday morning, I got out my
recipe book and started flipping through it
looking for something to make.
I came across something I had not made in a long time
I wish I could tell you where I got the recipe, but it is clipped out of
a magizine, and there is no source.
I used to make these all the time, at Christmas time,
adding red and green nonpareils,
and I got to thinking....
Why not make them for every holiday?
These are quick and simple,
only have 3 ingredients, plus whatever
colored sugar or nonpareils you want to add.
To give the St. Patrick's Day feel,
green nonpariels would be great,
but I did not have any, and since
I was pretty much snowed in
I used a mixture of light and dark green sanding sugar,
and they topped each one with a shamrock "sprinkle".
1 ¼ cup Flour
3 Tablespoons Sugar
½ Cold Butter, cut into small pieces
1 Tablespoon Nonparelis or Colored Sugar
Preheat oven to 325. In a food processor with knife blade attachment, pulse flour and sugar until combined. Add butter and pulse until dough begins to come together. Transfer dough into a medium bowl. With hands, gently knead in nonpareils or sanding sugar until evenly blended and the dough forms a ball. On a lightly floured waxed paper, pat dough into a 8 x 5 inch rectangle, freeze for 15 minutes. Cut dough into ½ inch squares. Place squares ½ inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake cookies for 18-20 minutes or until lightly browned on bottoms. Transfer to wire rack to cool. Store cookies in a tightly covered container at room temperature for up to 1 week, or freeze up to 3 months.
I hope you enjoy these as much as I do, they are fun and easy to make.
