Whether it’s driving around the neighborhood seeing every house lit up with lights, making reindeer food with the kids or grandma’s cookies from scratch, decorating the staircase with fresh green garland and red bows, to attending Christmas eve service at church the ladies at Design Lines are blessed this Christmas.
Below is a picture of Lauren’s Christmas tradition of baking her great grandmother’s French cookies and recipe. Yummy!
French Cookies – my great grandmother’s recipe
3 cups of flour
3 sticks of butter
3 egg yolks
1 cup of sugar
Strawberry preserves, Polander real mint jelly, MacKay’s lemon curd, pecans, etc
Soften the butter.
Mix with egg yolks; stir.
Mix in sugar; stir.
Mix in flour last; stir until it is moist and even.
Roll dough into 1” balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Using your pinky finger, poke halfway into each dough ball, creating a well.
Fill the well with a small amount of desired topping.
Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes.
Let cool and enjoy!
