Saturday morning I got up and decided to make some cookies for my Mama, Nanny, mother in law and JW's Godmother. Mama's favorite cookies are the Danish wedding cookies, so that is what I made.
Start by sifting some flour and a little bit of cinnamon.
Melt 2 1/2 sticks of butter
Chop up some pecans.
Sift some powdered sugar.
Mix everything together with a little vanilla extract.
The dough will be thick.
Form into 1 inch balls and bake at 350 for 10-12 mins.
Let cool slightly
Roll them in powdered sugar.
When they have cooled all the way, roll them again in powdered sugar.
So, as you can see I did not burn the house down trying to bake these cookies for my Mama. I am not a huge fan of baking, but I was pleased that they came out so well. My next baking adventure will be some lemon cookies I made a couple years ago, but I have to find the recipe first. What is your favorite cookie? I love snickerdoodles! If you have a great recipe for them, please share.
