I wonder what these two have in store for y'all today?
Is there one tradition that you have to do during the holiday season, something you can't live without? Mine is eggnog...
yummy, creamy, rich eggnog...and do you know what goes great with eggnog?? COOKIES!!!
This recipe came from my Mother-in-law and while I do an okay job with them, and they taste pretty much the same for some reason her's are better...and these Linzer Tarts go great with eggnog, so grab a mug and get to baking...almost a match made in heaven.
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp almond extract
3 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup Raspberry Preserves (or flavor of your choice)
Cream butter and sugar; blend in eggs, extract, flour, baking powder. Mix well, chill batter for 1 hour or more. Roll out quarter of mixture at a time; cut with round cookie cutter (scalloped edges are pretty); take half of circles and cut smaller holes in middle; bake 350 for 8 to 10 minutes; do not overbake you’ll want a soft cookie and they should look white, no browning. Cool cookies completely on rack; put preserves on solid side of cookie, top with cookie with hole in the middle; sift powdered sugar on top.
Makes 32 cookies
