Christmas Cookies

So I have been looking through tons of magazines and cookbooks trying to find the best cookies I can find. I think I have found a few I definitely want to try on top of our family favorites. I will be sure to post the recipes and try and remember to take some pictures if I can get them before the kids snatch the cookies. :-)

Lemonade Cookies

I got this recipe from a magazine (but I can't remember which one, sorry) and tried last night, and everyone really likes them! They taste like lemon bars...so good..We would definitely make again.

1 c. butter, softened
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
3 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 c. thawed frozen lemonade concentrate, divided

In a large bowl, cream sugar and butter till light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time till well mixed. Combine flour and baking soda; add to creamed mixture alternately with 1/3 c. lemonade concentrate, beating well between each addition.

Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Remove to wire racks. Brush with remaining lemonade and sprinkle with sugar.

It's Been A While....

I know it's been a while and I apologize, but I am going to work on the site over the next few weeks hopefully.

Here is a link for a couple recipes that some have asked for over the past few weeks.

Harvest Cinnamon Rolls (the ones I made for everyone last year at Christmas)

Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day (which makes great pizza dough)

Sweet Potato and Apple Recipe (made this at Thanksgiving and will make again at Christmas, everyone loved it, even picky kids who don't like sweet potatoes that much)
