The time is flying! I still have cookies to make, lights to see, and gifts to wrap! I need more time! I need an elf helper.
Christmas is one of my favorite times of year. I love the hustle and bustle, the shopping, the parties, the love of family and friends. The baking, the expressions on the faces of my granddaughters as they open their gifts on Christmas morning, and the general feeling of love all around. It's too bad that Christmas is the only time some people show that love and compassion for others. The world would be a better place if we could all keep that Christmas spirit all year round.
One of my favorite Christmas Cookie recipes:
3/4 c. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 c. sugar
1 c. chopped walnuts
1 c. chopped dates
Mix together all ingredients EXCEPT confectioners sugar. Bake in bread pan at 360 degrees for 30 minutes. Cut into small squares while hot and roll in your hands. Watch out! It's hot! Dip in confectioner's sugar and let cool.
These are yummy!
