Christmas Cookie Recipe
This Christmas cookie recipe makes a BIG batch of delicious, unique Christmas Cookies! They've been in our family for more than 25 years, and this recipe is unlike any body else's that I've ever tried. Hint: Find some people to help you frost!
Cream shortening, add sugar gradually. Beat till fluffy. Sift
flour and add dry ingredients alternately with buttermilk.
Combine thoroughly. Add flour to make a stiff dough. Roll thin
and cut into shapes. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
For frosting, mix 2 lb. powdered sugar with 1 tsp vanilla,
1 tsp. walnut flavoring, 2 Tbs. melted butter. Slowly add
evaporated milk (start with 1/2 of a 16 oz. can) and gradually
add more,stirring, until a creamy frosting consistency. After
mixing in a large bowl, divide into 4 small bowls and mix red,
blue, green, and yellow food coloring. Frost cookies, and add
sprinkles on top. Make sure you have family or friends to help
cut, bake, and decorate.
Of all the Christmas Cookie recipes I've tried, this is still my favorite for it's unique flavor and not too sweet taste. I hope you enjoy them, too.
