So what’s our offering? Ta-da! I make cookie mix into maximum flavor.
My wonderful cousin, Beccah, gave us a couple packs of sugar cookie mix. I wanted to dress it up a little, ’cause sugar cookies, eh, they tend to be methods of getting frosting to your mouth at functions where finger-lickin’ if frowned on or a cute craft project for the wee ones that isn’t going to be sucking up prime real estate on the fridge for an eon.
So I was pleased when Sis, aka DS 8, asked to use a recipe found in this cookbook (in the Party Treats section):
The ingredients were as simple as the procedure.
Almond Snowball Cookies
We poured everything into a bowl and mixed it, sugar cookie mix, 1 cup almonds, 3/4 cup flour, 1 cube butter, 1 egg, 2 T honey, 1/2 t almond extract. Dropped dough balls into a shallow dish of powered sugar to coat and baked at 350 degrees. Easy-peasey.
They tasted great. As you can see, Benjamin has happy eyes. And he can barely hold the cookie, because he didn’t allow it to cool at all but ate it straight out of the oven. The dough tasted great too. According to the kids. Because how else would I know? Oh all right I ate plenty of dough–it was fab.
The dough was crumbly we had to mash it together a bit before rolling it in the powdered sugar.
Thank you all for hopping by. We’ll have several more tastey recipes coming out this Christmas season along with my series on creating and keeping family harmony, so be sure to stop back by.
