I was so mad they didnt have it and not sure when they are goin to get it even. I searched thru ebay and didnt find one either. IT is the new Jo Packham mag Where Women Create the premier issue was nov and i so badly want one!! If anyone has one or know someone who sells them or where I can get it please PLLLLLLLLLLLLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSEEEEEEEEE let me know!! THANKS!!!
Hope everyone is recovered from thier big turkey day dinner i swear we dont eat the following days very much at all!! LOL But is sure is yummy stuff!! Just such a great deal of work goes into preparing and serving and then 5 min later it is over!!
Well with the holidays well under way and Christmas just round the bend here is a recipe for super wonderful yummiest ever butter cookies that i have been making for a long long time!! You can make so many versions of this it is great! Here are some ways i change it up a bit and make a triple batch.
So kind of like the good ol thumbprint cookies i take a small scoop then a shot glass bottom dipped in powdered sugar (shot glass comes in handy for just this purpose no other of cource)ROFL! push middle in to make a little well: now here is the fun part fill that with the following:
toffee bits, mini choc chips, reeces peanut butter pieces, jam/jelly, nut meal, chopped nuts, crushed peppermint candies, chopped cinnamon buttons, red hot candies and then drizzle melted milk or white choc chips. What is really really cute and so fun for xmas is to melt down the red and green choc discs from wilton and drizzle that on top for a festive look.
Here is the recipe:
BEST EVER BUTTER COOKIES
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 cup flour
combine all ingredients EXCEPT flour, in lg bowl, beat at med speed until creamy. Stir in flour by hand until well moistened. Scoop dough onto ungreased cookie sheets bake 15 min at 350 degrees or until edges are just lightly brown.
For a quick glaze take 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar and 3-4 tblsp milk mix well place in ziplock baggie snip just the end tip of one corner off and drizzled ontop of cooled cookies. makes 40 small cookie scoop size cookies.
