time to make the cookies!!
what i love about this recipe is that i can make them ahead of time…while they are at school….and then put them to work decorating them when they get home.
wait…what are we missing here???!!
hats of course!!
my taste tester caught in action!
this recipe makes a little over 60 cookies!!! enough to eat a bunch now and freeze the rest for later!
I have no idea where i got this recipe….it has always been a clipping from a newspaper that i taped into my recipe book!
this is a dry cookie, great with coffee, with a little bit of sweetness. It wouldn’t be Christmas without these!
- 5 eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 sticks of margarine
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp orange extract
- 1 tsp lemon extract
- 1 Tbsp anise extract
- 4 cups of flour
- 4 tsps baking powder
Beat eggs and sugar until smooth. Add margarine and beat again. Add flavorings and continue beating. Add baking powder and flour gradually. Beat until well blended. More flour can be added in order to make dough stick together.
Preheat oven 350 degrees. With floured hands take small amounts of dough and roll into balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes (more like 12 in my oven). Cool on cookie rack.
Glaze: mix 1 1/2 cups of confectionary sugar with 4 Tbsps of milk. Dip cookie in glaze and then dip into sprinkles.
