It was a toxic month for me last December. I was so busy catering to my Christmas pastry orders. I should have shared this recipe prior to Christmas but of course the cookies can also be served or given as gifts for other occasions.
This recipe will activate your creative juices. You can dip the cookie logs in melted milk
chocolate, white chocolate or dark chocolate. Sprinkle with cupcake sprinkles, chopped nuts,
minis choco chips, mini M n Ms, etc. Drizzle with melted colored chocolate melts.
So many options.
3/4 cup sugar
2 1/4 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter, softened

2 cups chopped nuts (optional)
