It’s the Christmas edition of the ‘White Food Club’. This is such a nice basic recipe that I make it all year long. The dough is very soft and the cookies bake up so tenderly. If you take a bite and leave it on your tongue, it will slowly dissolve. I love this recipe.
I use a cookie press to flatten the cookies. These presses are the cutest things. They come in many styles including holiday designs. I used to have quite a few, but moving caused me to downsize. If you don’t want a design, simply use the bottom of a glass or a fork in an ‘x’ pattern.
Super simple recipe. You put the first 5 ingredients in your mixer bowl and cream them. Add the next 5 ingredients and combine. Done. The dough is a little crumbly and super soft. When you roll it into balls, the crumbly aspects disappear.
They don’t look fancy, but you will love having a dozen or 2 of these in your freezer at all times. Remember when I was telling you about the cookie and coffee tours? Well, these are wonderful with a cup of coffee. Give me a call when the coffee is ready.

This is Aunty Kay’s recipe. The cookies are so light they melt in your mouth. I had quite a collection of cookie presses. I think I used to make these cookies so I had an excuse to buy another cookie press. A basic cookie and of course it’s white.
and remember: Just in case no one told you today: Good morning, you’re beautiful, I love you and your have a great butt. Big kiss, Lynn
