My mom is a COOK. Not the fancy kind of cooking you have in restaurants but down-home, old-fashioned, mouth-watering good cooking that makes you think of home and holidays. Every holiday at parents’ house is filled with food (Oy!) and may include but not be limited to:
turkey, ham, sweet corn, pickled corn, green beans, shuck beans, homemade biscuits, mashed potatoes and gravy, yams, greens, casseroles, cherry pie, blueberry pie, apple pie, pumpkin pie, dressing, and so many more dishes I can’t begin to think of them all, much less name them. All home made and usually from their garden.
One of my all-time favorite holiday desserts???
Now, you know me and my penchant for chocolate so cookies have to be all that for me to like the non-chocolate kind. It’s just the way I roll. LOL But for the holidays I thought I’d share my mom’s recipe for my favorite, non-chocolate cookies. Make. Eat. Enjoy! (And let me know how you like them!!!)
4.5 oz cream cheese
1 c butter or margarine
2 cups plain flour
Have cream cheese and butter at room temp. Mix all ingredients. Roll out and cut with biscuit cutter (round cookie cutter). Fill with your favorite jam (Strawberry is my fave!!!) and fold in middle (looks like a lily when folded). Bake 350 degrees for 15 minutes. After baking sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar. That’s it! These are absolutely delicious!
Do you have any simple but fantastic recipes to share???
