In celebration of the holiday season, I'm sharing some of my holiday favorites:
Favorite holiday cookie recipe:
1 C soft butter
1/2 C powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 C all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 C chopped nuts
Mix together butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Sift flour and salt and mix in. Stir in chopped nuts. Chill 2 hours. Roll into 1 inch balls. Place 2 1/2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees until set, but not brown (10-12 minutes). While warm, roll in powdered sugar. Cool and roll again. Makes 24 cookies.
Favorite holiday song:
All I Want for Christmas by Mariah Carey. (Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAkMkVFwAoo)
Favorite holiday book:
Christmas Returns to Pottersville by Dennis Higgins.
Full of imagination, Christmas Returns to Pottersville is a clever combination of the familiar stories of Scrooge (A Christmas Carol) and It's a Wonderful Life. It's a well-written, quick read that offers hope that kindness and love can make the world a better place.
