Adlandpro Community Cookbook--COOKIES
5/9/2006 5:34:34 PM
Some of the sweetist memories of Home are bound up with Mother's cookie jar. My cousin and I recently remembered our grandmothers sugar cookies. She kept them in a pan covered with a towel and they sat on a ledge at the top of the basement steps to keep cool. No sugar cookie ever tasted so good. Here we list our favorite cookies with flavors that make you want to have several with a glass of cool milk or maybe tea or coffee.

Thumbprint Cookies When I was a young teenager, someone baked this lovely cookie for a wedding shower. I asked for a copy of the recipe only to be told that it was a family secret from her Aunt in Canada. Being curious and somewhat stubborn, I checked out my pride and joy cookbook by Betty Crocker. Low and Behold, there was a picture of that very cookie. Old family secret, my foot!!!! So here it is for the world to know. I have only ever filled the cookie with jelly--grape, or berries. Luckly some will break in the transfer and handling so you get to eat some too!!!! They do look nice on a cookie platter because of the beautiful filling. No cookie platter of mine has ever been without. Thumb Print Cookies 1/2 c. soft shortening (half butter) or use all butter 1/4 c. brown sugar (packed) 1 egg yolk 1/2 t. vanilla Mix thoroughly Sift together and stir in: 1 c. sifted flour 1/4 tsp. salt Roll into 1 " balls. Dip in slightly beaten egg whites. Roll in finely chopped nuts (3/4 cup). Place about 1 " apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 5 min. Remove from the oven. Quickly press thumb gently on top of each cookie making an indentation. Return to the oven and bake 8 min. longer. Cool In the thumbprint place a bit of chopped candied fruit, sparkling jelly, or tinted confectioners sugar.
