I love Home Made things~
Food,crafts,wine,anything really..and this time of year is a great time to do some of these things..
I had some time..and a new tea to try..
..Chocolate and Mint~ It's so good..It is my second one from this company and they are exceptionally good.
Exceptionally good to bake by..and to soothe a Nana cold caught from Ollie..
I know you're not supposed to kiss sick kids with runny noses..But we..cannot resist.Pay the Piper Nana.
With exceptionally clean hands..I put my new stamp to the test..I had seen it offered in the UK..never here.I was happy to find one ap. 25 minutes away..
The cookies turn out very well..
I had bought some stamp/cutters at The Christmas Tree Shop by Wilton..and they just don't compare..this one works!
The recipe was found on Cooks .com..
HONEY STAMPED COOKIES
1/2 c. butter
1 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/3 c. sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tbsp. honey
1/2 tsp. vanilla
In a large bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed about 30 seconds or until softened. Add about half of the flour. Add the 1/3 cup sugar, egg yolk, honey and vanilla. Beat until thoroughly combined. Beat or stir in the remaining flour.
Shape dough into 1-1 1/2 inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Using a floured cookie stamp or the floured bottom of a glass, flatten balls to 1/4 inch thickness. If desired, trim uneven edges from cookies with a round cookie cutter. If desired, lightly sprinkle cookies with additional sugar.
Bake in a 375 degree oven for about 6 minutes or until done. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute. Makes 24-36.
My recipe did not make that many cookies..it made about 14..But this is a large stamp:)
I did add a touch of flour and baked ap.7 mins..
It's one of those cookies..where 1 minute makes a difference.
I pressed my stamp in sugar before stamping the dough
They are cute and good~Aren't they cute? It's not just me right?
Like the teas~
