    The holidays are sneaking up Ladies and Gentlemen, and for me, this means cookies!

    Who's up for a recipe exchange? Would anyone want to share their favorite holiday recipies?

    I will share my favorite sugar cookie recipie once I get to a computer, typing that long of recipie with my thumb would be painful! (posting using my phone.)

    Oh Yeah!!! This is a recipe for a German Christmas cookie called Pheffernuse or Pepper Nuts. Hope it is okay to put the recipes right here. Sounds logical to me. The part that says the mixing directions are on another page just ignore. Put the wet ingredients together and the dry ones in another bowl. Then slowly mix the dry into the wet.

    Blue Ribbon Oatmeal Cookies


    6 Tablespoons butter (4 Tbl. = ¼ cup)
    6 Tablespoons margarine
    1 cup light brown sugar
    ½ cup white sugar
    2 eggs
    4 Tablespoons water
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1-1/2 cups flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    ½ teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    2-½ cups oatmeal
    1 cup raisins (craisins are good in these, too)
    1 cup chopped nuts

    Preheat oven to 350*

    Cream butter, margarine, and sugars together. Add water and vanilla. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Combine flour, salt, soda, and cinnamon. Add to creamed mixture. Stir in oats, raisins, and nuts.

    Drop by teaspoons on to prepared baking sheets, 2” apart. Bake 8-10 minutes or until bottom of cookies are lightly browned. Let stand to firm up before transferring to wire racks to cool.

    Makes 4-5 dozen, but they disappear fast.


    If you bake in a gas stove, they will be crispy outside and chewy inside. Electric ovens make them crispy thoughout. Either way, they taste great.

    here is our fav. easy candy recipe

    Fool’s Toffee

    36 to 40 saltine crackers (1 sleeve)
    1 cup (2 sticks) real butter
    1 cup packed dark brown sugar
    2 cups (12 oz.) milk chocolate chips
    ½ to 1 cup chopped pecans

    Line a 10x17 inch-baking pan with foil and coat the foil with butter. Arrange the crackers in a single layer with sides touching in the prepared pan. Combine 1 cup butter and brown sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil for 4 minutes, stirring constantly.
    Pour the butter mixture over the crackers. Using a wooden spoon spread the mixture evenly over the crackers. Bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with the chocolate chips and let stand for 2 minutes or until the chips soften. Spread the chocolate evenly over the prepared layers. Sprinkle with pecans and press lightly. Chill for 30 minutes or until set. Break into pieces and store in a covered container in the refrigerator.

    An elderly friend gave this to me, it was her mother's recipe:


    Cut Out Cookies
    1 cup shortening or lard
    2 cups sugar
    1 cup sour cream
    2 eggs
    1 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp vanilla
    4 or 5 cups flour

    Cream sugar, shortening and eggs. Add the rest, mix. Refrigerate overnight before rolling out on a floured surface. Bake 350' for 10 to 12 minutes. Cool and frost.

    This is the original recipie's frosting. I use a mix of butter, milk and powdered sugar instead.

    1 cup sugar
    1/3 cup water
    2 egg whites

    Cook sugar and water until it spins a thread. While sugar mixture is cooling, beat egg whites until stiff. Gradually add cooked mixture to egg whites, continue to beat until it loses its gloss. Frost cookies.

    This is such a fabulous recipe! I hope you enjoy it!

    My great grandmother made these - Hungarian foldovers we call them

    Mix 1lb flour, 1lb butter and 1lb cream cheese - It works best if you let the butter and cream cheese soften overnight.

    Refrigerate dough until stiff then roll out until to 1/8" thickness. Cut into 2" squares and drop a teaspoon of apricot jam in the middle. Fold the opposite corners up and pinch tight then fold down. Brush with beaten egg yolk and sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 375 until brown.

    I recommend covering the cookie sheet with tin foil cause the jelly will leak out and the sugar browns on the cookie sheet too.

    If this doesn't make sense let me know I did this from my brain and doesn't work well sometimes :)
