COOKIE COUNTDOWN! Day #4
In our house, these are just known as...
the white cookies
All four of my boys love them. They will eat pretty much everything, but they ASK for these.
They might be everyone's favorite.
(But here's a lil' secret...
they are also the easiest to make!)
It's not an old family recipe, at least not from my family. My mom (known affectionately as 'Mama C' in Quilt Market circles!) got this recipe from her friend Martha. (She was a wonderful quilter too!) And so all of her quilter friends call these cookies "Martha's cookies".
We just call them "THE WHITE COOKIES".
And my boys know what I'm talking' about.
Here's the recipe:
2 cubes softened butter
2/3 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups flour
1. Mix all of the ingredients together to make the dough and press into a cookie sheet.
2. Spread powdered sugar on top (as much as you want, I use LOTS, about 2 cups!) and press into dough. A lot of it will still be "loose" on top.
3. Bake 350 18-19 min. Cut into squares while still warm.
On a scale of 1 to 10....
these cookies are about a 1 for easy!
and definitely a 10 for DeLisH-ish-NeSs!
