Wow, this is such a wonderful time of year! I'm so excited to pawticipate in Daisy's Christmas Cookie Recipe Exchange today. Click on her name to see her blog and join in. Here's a favorite holiday cookie from my house:
1 cup butter or margarine
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
1 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon corn starch
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
Cream the butter and sugar together until smooth. Add the egg and vanilla and stir. Mix the dry items, then add to the cream. Drop on ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
These are so tasty and soft and delish! Most everyone likes cinnamon and it's a popular flavor at the holiday season, so I hope you enjoy these. Thanks, Daisy, for hosting such a yummy event!
And now for the big Holiday Card Exchange Count:
