First off, Merry Christmas! It’s been a rainy one here in North Carolina, but we’re been having a good one regardless. This year’s Christmas cookies recipe is as follows:

  • 3/4 cup of softened butter
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

Simply beat the cream and sugar before adding the wets, then the dries. Chill the dough for a bit before rolling it out and cutting. If the dough gets too warm it sticks to the cookie cutters and is hard to move around once cut! These are a tradition around my house.
