1 cup of water
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup of sugar
1 tsp salt
1 cup of brown sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice
4 large eggs
1 cup of nuts
2 cups of dried fruit
1 bottle of Tequila

Sample the Tequila in a large glass to check taste. Take a large bowl, and check the Tequila again, to be sure it is of the Highest quality. Pour one level cup and drink.

Turn on the electric mixer, Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl. Add one teaspoon of sugar. Beat again. At this point, it's best to make sure the tequila is still ok, so try Another cup.

Turn off the mixerer thingy. Break 2 leggs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit. Pick the frigging fruit and damm cup off the floor.

Mix on the turner. If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaterers, just Pry it loose with a drewscriver. Sample the tequila to check for tonsisticity.

Next, sift two cups of salt, or something. Check the Tequila.

Now shift the lemon juice and strain your nuts. Add one table. Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink. Whatever you can find. Greash the oven. Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall over. Don't forget to beat off the turner. Put the bowl through the window, finish off the booze and make sure to put the dirty stove in the dishwasher. CHERRY MISTMAS TO ALL!

This is one of my favorite. My Mother's cookies, I grew up with them. They were a
favorite in the neighborhood.
In my opinion, these cookies are waaaay better than Sugar Cookies. They also work
well in a Cookie Press.
I used to divide the dough and make 1/2 red and 1/2 green, put the colored dough
side by side in a cookie press and make Candy Cane Cookies.

Mom's Rolled Butter Cookies

Rolled Butter cookies

1 C Butter
1 C Sugar
Cream butter and gradually add sugar,
cream together well

1 Egg
2 Tbs Cream* Milk or Evaporated Milk
1 Tbs grated orange peel**
1 Tsp Bake Powder
1/2 Tsp B Soda
1/2 Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Vanilla

Blend into Sugar-Butter mixture

3 Cups Flour

Gradually add flour to mixture, mix well.

If necessary chill dough, divide dough into thirds, roll out about 1/3 at a
time on floured surface to 1/8 inch. Use Cookie Cutters to cut shapes.
Decorate with colored sugars, cinnamon dots, sprinkles, etc.

Baked on ungreased cookie sheets in 400 degree oven 5 to 7 minutes.

By the way a small glass dipped in flour works well for a cookie cutter if
uniformity is wanted and cutters are just too much to work with at the time.

*I have made these both with and without cream, substituting evaporated milk.
Slight difference but not a lot between cream, or evaporated milk. I would use
regular milk in a pinch but don't know the outcome, probably very little change.

** any orangy colored citrus works here, Tangerine,Tangelos, or oranges
I think for lemon cookies, lemon peel would work, but I have never tried it.

Also note: for peppermint cookies, especially the candy canes cookies use
1 to 2 Tsp of pepperment extract, instead of orange peel. I crush starlight
mints or candy canes and put in the dough. I don't really have a measurement
of the amount as this is something that is a personal touch.

For any other variation, almond, anise, etc drop the Orange peel. Again, 1-2 Tsp
of flavoring to taste.

TIP: If any cookie, not just this recipe turns out dry and crumbly add a little more
of the liquid the recipe calls for, or even a little water.

I haven't made cookies in years; when the kids were little, seems like I was constantly baking cookies, but the cookies left with them. :CoffeeNews: :SWG:

However, these sound pretty tempting & not that difficult.

Thanks!! :smile:

Thank you, Shecoda! These sounds amazing. Have you tried a gluten free flour or do you think one would work? There's a few people I know with gluten allergies. I might want to make a second batch for them. It's just that some of the gluten-free flours are bleh, though wonder if coconut flour would work...

I don't know about gluten-free flour in the cookies. The problem is the grind of the flour has to be fine, not coarse.

I would guess you could look online and see what other types of flour could be used in cookie baking.
