I have a craving for frosted sugar cookies... a bad craving.
So, since I need to blog about something, why not share my favorite holiday recipes?
I have no pictures of baked cookies, I am trying very hard to resist this temptation.
But I will share pictures from my actual cookbook from 8th grade Home Ec class.
I sold dozens of cookbooks in 8th grade so I could go on a field trip to
Betty Crocker in Minneapolis in 9th grade.
It was a great field trip.
I listened to my Madonna cassette tape all the way there and back
(about 3 hours each way from Duluth in 1985).
Magical Field Trip... Magical!
So, to all of my neighbors and relatives who bought cookbooks in 1984, thank you!
The first 2 recipes are from my Grandma Mary.Mary's Sugar Cookies
These are the best... no other sugar cookies even compare.
Next up is Grandma Mary's Spritz
I'm starting to feel a strong pull to my stand mixer and baking ingredients...
Lastly is a recipe my Mother In Law introduced me to... no idea if it is a family recipe or just a good one she found somewhere.
I'm going to guess this is supposed to be the famous cake from the Waldorf Astoria Hotel... but who knows??Waldorf Cake and Frosting
and because I love cookies and cakes so much this time of year... I bought myself a new cookbook today.
My doctor suggested it at my visit in June... Ugh.
Happy Holiday Baking Everyone!
