Day 19: Video: The Best Christmas Cookies



Tomorrow, I will show you what I will do when we own a home. (If that ever happens) You will be WOWED! Ever heard of the song Amazing Grace? Come back tomorrow and see what I’m talking about!


Today we are going to make the best tasting Christmas cookies you will ever have! Don’t think they will be the best? Well, make them so you can taste them and see! These cookies are my “diet downfall” every year. You can’t just eat one or two or three or four…


Here is the recipe:

What you need:

2/3 cup margerine/butter – 3/4 cup sugar – 1 TSP Lemon Extract – 1TSP Vanilla Extract – 1 Egg – 4 TSP Milk – 2 Cups Flour – 1 1/2 TSP Baking Powder – 1/4 TSP Salt


Cream together butter, sugar, extracts, egg. Mix in milk. Blend in dry ingredients. Divide dough in 2 parts. Refrigerate at least 1 hour. On floured surface, roll dough, cut with cookie cutters. Bake on greased sheet @375 degrees for 6-8 minutes (based on how light or dark you prefer them to be). Best to double batch and divide into four parts to cool.


Here is the very amature instructional video:

    Great video!! I loved the “moose” cookie cutter! ( Very appropriate since Leah comes from Vermont where there are “moose crossing” signs!)

  • Marti:

    Quick question – directions say 375 degrees…video says 325. Which is correct? Thanks! I remember also seeing the Moose Crossing signs in Vermont…never saw one crossing the road however.

  • @ “MOM” – Thanks! We bought it in Vermont. Ironic?

    @ Marti – Good catch! The directions are right and the video is wrong. I must have been so nervous on the video that I messed up! It is supposed to be 375 degrees! haha

  • you are a regular Paula Dean (minus the fat fingers)

  • @ Steve – Thanks! Maybe you can make these for Brother Rodney. Is he still staying with you?
