12 Days of Christmas Wishing – December 3

“On the Third Day of Wishing

“I’d love a place for my rulers”

 Don’t let your sewing room get unruly!  Take charge and get those rulers and acrylic templates standing on guard, ready for action. 

 “I want to do some baking”

 Here’s a chance to make cut cookies that are dear to your heart. 

 

These would make wonderful gifts for guild friends, sewing buddies, or yourself.  Next guild meeting you could bring in a plate of treats that’s just perfect for the occasion.

As a treat for you, here’s Grandma Ohm’s sugar cookie recipe courtesy of Leslie.  If Grandma Ohm was still here to enjoy these, she’d be 120 years young.

Mix together and set aside:

  • 3 ¼ cups of flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt

Cream together:

  • ½ cup of margarine
  • 1 cup of sugar 

Mix with sugar/margarine mix:

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla or ½ tsp. nutmeg

Add ½ cup sour cream. 

 Add dry ingredients to moist ingredients.  Roll out to ½” thickness.  Bake in pre-heated oven at 350°F until light golden.  Let cool and frost.  (Alternatively, you can sprinkle with sugar before placing in oven.)

 Linda the new Cookie Monster

 Knock, knock,

“Who’s there?”

 “Cookie Monster”

 “Cookie Monster, who?”

 “Cookie Monster who’s blue, cause Sesame Street, says, “No more cookies for you!” (Will he be changing his name to Salad Monster?)
