I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Christmas Butter Cookies

A buttery melt in your mouth shortbread cookie.

  • Ingredients:

  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1  1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsps vanilla
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • Sprinkles

Sift the flour and icing sugar together.
In a large mixer bowl cream the butter, then add the flour/sugar in 2 or 3 additions. Next add the vanilla and mix until well combined. Add some sprinkles to the dough.

Roll into 1" balls and place on a parchment line baking sheet.

You can "sprinkle" more sprinkles on the top of each ball or for an easier, more-sprinkle way dip each ball into a bowl of sprinkles. Place back on the baking sheet and gently press down with a fork.

Bake at 350 F for 12-13 minutes or until the edges are just golden. These pictured below may have been in a minute longer than necessary.

Once cooled these cookies may be stored in a tin for weeks.
Makes 3 dozen
