Butter Cookies (Cookie Press Cookies)

1 cup (2 sticks) Butter
1/2 cup Sugar
1 Egg
1 tps Almond Extract
2-1/3 cups Flour

Cream butter. Gradually add sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and almond extract. Gradually beat in flour. Fill cookie press with 1/4 of dough at a time; form desired shapes on ungreased cookie sheets. Add sprinkles! Bake in preheated 350˚ oven, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove immediately to wire rack to cool. Makes about 7 dozen cookies. For Christmas we usually make a double batch. They are smallish bite size cookies.

That is all the Christmas cookie recipies I happen to have on my computer here at work.

We usually make lots and lots of cookies! My mom, sister and I usually get together and make most of the cookies in one weekend. We have so much fun! The past couple of years DS12 has also helped. He loves to cook and bake! We all buy our ingredients and go to either my house or my mom's (we both have double ovens). We have two stand mixers and we usually have atleast 3 (but usually more) kinds of cookies being mixed, baked, chilled or iced at a time. We usually each pick a batch of cookies to make. We then double the batches or make 3 batches in a row if there is a certain kind of cookie one of us likes to make (like I hate rollout cookies and my sister loves it). It speeds things up if you do multiple batches of the same cookies at the time.

This year we are at my mom's house since they just did a complete kitchen remodel and she got the world's coolest double oven. We can have 8 sheets of cookies baking at one time!

When I get time over the next couple of weeks I will add more cookie recipies.

My mom and I are going to get together December 1st (DSis will be out if town) to start making cookies and then we will finish them up on the 10th while the guys are out deer hunting.

Thumbs up Grandma's Butterscotch Haystacks

These are my Dad's all-time favorite, my grandmother always made them with extra cashews!!! These are almost like candy when done. They are a nice filler on a cookie tray.

Butterscotch Haystacks
1 package Butterscotch chips (appx 12 oz)
1 can (10 ounces) cashews
1 can (5 ounces) chow mein noodles

Melt butterscotch according to package directions. Stir in nuts and noodles. Spoon onto waxed paper and let dry.

choco nut cookies

1 ¾ cups plain (all-purpose) flour
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
½ cup butter or margarine, softened
⅓ cup peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)
¾ cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla essence (NOT flavouring)
1 cup plain (semi-sweet) chocolate morsels, melted

Preheat oven to 350F/180C/Fan 160C. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl, mix well. In a large bowl beat butter, sugar and peanut butter until creamy. Beat in egg and vanilla, stir in melted chocolate. Add flour mixture and mix well. Drop scoops or dessertspoons of dough onto baking sheets about 2” apart. Flatten balls slightly (you can add chopped peanut butter cups or M&Ms to the top if you wish). Bake for 18-20 minutes until cookies are almost set and cracked on top (should still be moist – do not overbake!) Cool for 3-5 minutes on tray before moving to cooling rack. Allow to cool completely- if you can! Perfect with a glass of milk!

Makes about 18 BIIIIG cookies

These are nice, but I have another Christmas cookie recipe which I make only at Christmas (unless I'm asked VERY nicely ) but I don't have it on my work PC. I'll try to post it from home, but I might need time to actually type it in.

I usually use walnuts, but I have substituted pecans.

I too have some problems once in a while with them sticking to the press. This usually happens when I get too much or too little dough. I have the Pampered Chef cookie press and the perfect cookie squeeze is one and a half clicks. Just experiment with it and if they aren't right just scrape them up and throw them back in the bowl and try again. HTH
