    Default Christmas Cookies.

    I know, I know it's early but here's a few recipes to help keep your kids (and yourself) busy during The Christmas Jollies. You can give them as Christmas gifts or scoff them all on your own.
    Below are some common Christmas cookies that aren't too hard to make. Go on...ya know ya want to.

    Short Bread Cookies

    Shortbread cookies are classics that will melt in your mouth. You can roll the dough out and use Christmas shaped cookie cutters or simple roll the cookies into balls and then roll the balls in a festive topping like crushed almonds or coconut. These cookies are easy and fun to make.

    You'll need the following:

    2 cups flour
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    1/2 pound unsalted butter
    pinch of salt

    To make the cookies mix the ingredients well and then roll out to a quarter inch thickness and use cookie cutters. Or make small balls out of them and roll the balls in nuts or coconut. Place on a greased cookie sheet and then flatten lightly with the bottom of a glass

    Bake at 300degrees F. for around 20 to 25 minutes.

    Secret Kiss Cookie

    These fun cookies have a chocolate kiss treat inside!
    1 3/4 cups flour
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    1 cup butter, softened
    1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
    1 bag chocolate kiss candies, unwrapped (7 ounces)
    powdered sugar

    Cream the butter, vanilla, and sugar. Blend in the flour. Wrap a tablespoon of the dough around a chocolate candy kiss. Place on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350degrees for approximately 15 minutes until the dough has set but is not brown. Then while still warm, roll each cookie in powdered sugar.

    The recipe above makes about 2 to 3 dozen cookies.

    Thumbprint Cookie

    This is a colorful and fun cookie that kids love to make with a thumbprint.

    2 1/2 cups flour - add more if dough is too thin
    3/4 cup granulated sugar
    1 cup butter, softened
    1 teaspoon almond extract
    2 teaspoons vanilla
    Chopped nuts

    Use an electric mixer and beat the butter at medium speed until creamy. Then add sugar and flour, vanilla and almond extract, blending well. Chill the dough for 2 a half hours then form it into small balls and roll them in the nuts. Place the balls on a lightly greased cookie sheet then make an indentation with your thumb and fill it with jam. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes until firm and light brown on bottom. Bake at 300degrees.
