My Favourite Christmas Cookies



Basic Creamed Dough (Refrigerator Cookies)

Ingredients

Butter 16 tbsp – 227g – 8 oz
Sugar 1 cup- 201g – 7 oz
1 Large Egg plus one egg yolk
1 tsp Vanilla or Almond extract or a combination of the two
All purpose flour 2 cups – 256g – 9 oz
Salt 1/2 tsp if using salted butter no need to add this salt.
1 cup of nuts or dried fruit of your choice or make them plain with out these additions.

To turn this into a chocolate cookie substitute 1/2 cup of good quality coco powder for 1/4 cup of the flour used in the recipe.

Directions:

Cream the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy. Beat in the egg and flavouring extract. Sift together the flour and salt and add it alternating with fruit or nuts if you are adding those. The last bit of mixture may need to be mixed in by hand. Roll into log or logs depending on the size you prefer and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes but it will keep for a week in the refrigerator.

Baking:

Cut cookies about a 1/4 inch thick and place on a buttered baking sheet or parchment paper lines sheet and bake at 350 F for about 8 to 10 minutes.
