Earlier this week I thought it would be fun to make an attempt at creating my own holiday cookie recipe. I was pretty thrilled with the results, but of course being as neurotic as I am, even when finished I came up with several more additions to the recipe.

1 ½ C. REAL BUTTER

1 ¾ C. SUGAR

2 EGGS

½ t. ALMOND EXTRACT

2 ½ C. FLOUR

1/8 t. SALT

½ C. SLIVERED ALMONDS

½ C. SWEETENED COCONUT FLAKES

1 C. CHERRY CHIPS

 

PREHEAT OVEN TO 350

 

CREAM TOGETHER BUTTER , SUGAR, EGGS AND ALMOND EXTRACT.

ADD FLOUR AND SALT, MIX WELL

ADD ALMONDS, CHERRY CHIPS, AND COCONUT FLAKES

 

BAKE FOR 10-12 MINUTES. 

 

A FEW ADDITIONAL MIX-IN/DECORATING IDEAS I CAME UP WITH AFTERWARDS WERE…

 

-1/2 C. WHITE CHOCOLATE CHIPS

-RED FOOD COLORING

DIPPING THE BOTTOMS OF THE COOKIES IN DARK CHOCOLATE

These cookies are very sweet, so the addition of dark chocolate would be a nice compliment. What mix-in’s would you add?  –ELIZA
