|We woke up to our first snow and it was beyond gorgeous! We decided to stay warm in the kitchen baking some Christmas cookies...|
Here is the link to the snow post if you would like to see it....
|Nothing puts me in the mood to make Christmas cookies like freshly fallen snow. We are going to make my mothers recipe for Sand Tarts or Snow cookies as my kids used to call them! The powder sugar on the cookies always looked like snow to them!|
|When the cookies are done, H and I will sample a few of them with our lunch....just a few...lol! H will have coffee with his cookies out of this beautiful tea cup that belonged to my mother....|
|I will have a cup of tea in my Grandma tea cup|
|I'm serving my tea in a white ironstone teapot that I have placed on a green hobnail cake stand. This is the smallest stand in a set of three that were a Christmas gift to my mother from me several years ago.|
|We are almost ready to sit down for lunch, but first I want to give you the recipe for these cookies....|
|Christmas Sand Tarts|
|I cut my ball of dough into about 1" pieces|
Roll between your hands to form crescent shaped cookies. Sometimes I make them round with a thumbprint in the center to hold jam...yummy!
Bake at 375 for about 11-15 minutes depending on your oven.
|Let them completely cool and you are ready for some fun! |
The kids love to help roll the cookies in powdered sugar....there's something about the feel of powdered sugar between you fingers...lol!
|Our 6 yr old grand daughter loves to lick the powdered sugar off her fingers after all the cookies are covered....kitchen rule #1 no licking fingers while rolling!|
