Irish pattato cookies

INGREDIENTS
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups confectioners' sugar
2 1/2 cups flaked coconut
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


DIRECTIONS
In a medium bowl, beat the butter and cream cheese together until smooth. Add the vanilla and confectioners' sugar; beat until smooth. Using your hands if necessary, mix in the coconut. Roll into balls or potato shapes, and roll in the cinnamon. Place onto a cookie sheet and chill to set. If desired, roll potatoes in cinnamon again for darker color.

I love these cookies below. There a holiday hit every time. I leave off the perserves but thats a personal choice. Also I put the dough on a cookie sheet then cut out circles with a coffee cup so they look more cookie like.
CROATIAN COOKIE

2 c. butter
2 c. ground nuts
1 jar apricot preserve
4 egg yolks
4 c. flour
1 tsp. vanilla

Cream together butter and sugar until creamy. Add beaten egg, mix in vanilla. Add flour and mix. Put 1/2 of the dough on a greased cookie sheet. Spread apricot jam, sprinkle rest of dough on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Cool and cut into 1 inch squares.

Thank you so much for putting them together. I'm going to make a cookbook out of them all for my daughter in law in Ireland. I've been sending them piecemeal.

Didn't we have a similar thread about just appetizers? I tried the search and got no where (surprise). I'd like to add those. And then I think I'll add the slow cooker recipes too! So far it's 69 pages (book size, double sided). This is just great.

Shagley, Left210 and ZipaDeeDooDah A million thank you's for compiling all those recipes on page 53! That was so awesome of you to do that. I'm really enjoying this thread and have made several of the recipes and they are yummy (and so easy!)

Happy Holidays to you and yours!

When my DMIL passed away in 1994 (just 2 weeks before my DD, her first grandchild, was born) the only possesion that her two sons (one my DH, of course) fought over was a hand-written cookbook where she had kept all of the family's favorite recipes. She was one heck of a cook.

So to try and make everyone happy (because her sisters, step-daughter and other familiy members also got involved) I spent the next weeks after she passed away typing it up so it could be shared by all. Each holiday I try and pick out something that she noted that my DH loved as a child (I even transcribed her notes about who liked what and I'm so glad that I did) and make it for him. The cookbook ended up being 122 pages long in a Word document so she's left me a lifetime of special surprises for her son.

This year I think I'm going to try this one:

Miniature Chocolate Fruit Cakes

1/2 c. all-purpose flour
2 tbsp. Hershey's Cocoa Powder
1/8 tsp. baking powder
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1/4 c. margarine, at room temperature
1 lg. egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3 tbsp. milk
1/2 c. chopped walnuts
1/3 c. chopped red candied cherries
1/4 c. each, golden raisins and chopped dates
For Decoration: 24 red candied cherry halves

Heat oven to 325. Grease 24 - 1 3/4 inch muffin cups. Mix flour, cocoa and baking powder. Beat sugar and margarine in bowl with mixer till well blended. Stir in remaining ingredients except decoration. Spoon into prepared muffin pans. Top each with a cherry half. Bake 15 to 20 minutes until tops look dry. Remove to wire rack to cool. Pack in an airtight container. Makes 24, 85 calories each.

According to the notation that she left this one is "good!"

This is such a sweet story. My friend's mother passed away a couple of years ago and her mother was also a wonderful cook with many handwritten recipes. My friend is working on typing up a cookbook using a font of her mothers handwriting (http://www.fontifier.com/) to give to her family members. She meant to do it for Christmas this year but ran out of time, but I know her family will just love it. (She used old letters and recipes that were written by her mom to have the font made).

Current has a 'hand writable' cookbook (From my kitchen to yours) for I think $19.99. (I'm sure you can find one cheaper than that, that just happens to be the one that I got.) I have one and have been passing it around to grandmas, aunts, even some uncles who like to cook. They write their specials in there and when it is done I will have a cookbook in all their own handwriting. Takes time, but I got started on it a few years ago, and add my own to it when I find something everyone likes. It is for my 17 yr old DD to have eventually.

What a GREAT idea this is! I really wish I'd had the chance to do something like this. The one piece I miss is the actual handwriting and notations (and even the cooking stains!) of the book. I don't know if I'd have enough of her handwriting lying around but I'm sure going to look!

Anyone interested in a place where you can self publish your own book with a harcover or as paperback and then order only as many copies as you need, go to: http://www.lulu.com/en/products/hardcover/

Look under the "Publish" links.

Here are several wonderful DIS archived threads I compiled from the various boards for cookies, treats, appetizers & other goodies. (They are not just for the holidays!) They are excellent DIS resources and would go great in a cookbook.

Quick and Easy Appetizers & Snacks

New Year's Eve appetizers

Here's the link to my favorite thread on the DIS:
