Christmas embroidery and more cookies!

By Christy Amular - December 21, 2008

Cinnamon the Bear just loves his new Christmas pillow featuring the wonderful Tree Family pattern from Nini Makes. And he's all settled for his long winter nap...

Guess what? Another cookie recipe for ya! This time, it's my adaptation of Mel Goodsell's wonderfully yummy Amish Cookie recipe. Seriously good with hot chocolate!

  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup sugar coated chocolate candy tablets
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp amaretto liqueur

Cream butter and sugar until fluffy and add egg. Add 1/2 tsp. vanilla and 1/4 tsp amaretto and stir well to blend. Sift together all purpose flour and baking soda. Add to butter mixture. Stir well with wooden spoon until combined. Add chocolate candy tablets. Scoop 1/2 tsp of cookie dough and form into circular shape. Press more chocolate candy tablets on top of cookies. Bake at 350 until golden brown.
