Default Anyone making Christmas cookies?

After a dinner of 5-cheese ravioli, sweet Italian sausage and a salad of mixed greens, me and the Mrs. spent 2 hours making cut-out sugar cookies. What a lot of work these puppies were. I made the dough and cut out all the cookies while she iced and decorated them.





This afternoon we also made snowballs, Danish sugar cookies and peanut butter blossoms.

Wife made whoopi pies and chocolate chip cookies and they seem to have disappeared. She took a bunch along to the spay/neuter clinic and I gave some to the Amish boy that helped me with the freezer. Those kids amaze me how they can eat goodies. They like my wife's baking as she makes different things they don't get at home.

I've not made these, but I have eaten them. As that hot Mex chic says, they are "Deliscioso."

Yep, the sugar cookies are a decorating nightmare, which is why the Mrs does that.

I wanna see those loaf pans of cinnamon rolls. I'm only familiar with the ones I make...

DOH

or is it "dough"

wife doesnt like icing, too much sugar ( so I put som blackstrap mollassas in the brownsugar/butter cinnimon filling )



lol, I also tried something different- I used a dinner roll recipe for it ( 2 eggs, 2 cups milk, 1.5 sticks of butter, 1/2c of sugar, 1tbs salt, 1 pkg yeast, 8c flour )

it's a pretty soft dough to work with

The smell of almond sticks bakiing is one of my fondest childhood memories of Christmas.

That and making shrinkie-dink ornaments.

WOW!!! The foodies are in the spirit today. The cinnamon rolls look delicious, Shep, and I'll bet they taste great with the blackstrap molasses. You dough is close to mine, but you use a bit more butter than I do...like 3x as much!

Cinnamon Rolls

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup milk (110 degrees F.)
1/4 cup warm water (110 degrees F.)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/2 cup butter, room temperature
2 eggs, room temperature and beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
5 cups bread flour
3 teaspoons instant active dry yeast


Cowboy, I haven't had cinnamon candy like that since I was a kid in the 60's when my grandmother made it. Sure brings back a lot of good memories. Oh, and the oatmeal cookies are my favorite. I love to dunk them in icy cold milk.

Hey Dave Nay! I used almond extract in the spritz cookies we made today. Outstanding flavor!
