Bake up some yummy refrigerator cookies!
Hello SaltTree readers! I'm Barb from Keeping up with the times -- a blog about Photography, Homemaking, and Life. I'm very happy to be a part of the Christmas Cavalcade and a big thank you to Amber for having me. Today my post is about something I really love... food!
I just love.love.love. refrigerator cookies at Christmas time. Such convenience! Whip up a batch of dough, roll into logs, wrap in parchment paper. You can store the logs in the fridge for a day or two or freeze for a month. Take them out any old time and you can have fresh baked cookies in an instant!
They also make an awesome little hostess gift if you wrap them up in a cellophane bag and add a pretty Christmas topper with a tag.
After countless years of using an old family recipe, I decided to try something new. I couldn't have been happier with the results. They are buttery, light, and tender with a bit of chewy goodness from the cherries. They are also prettier!! And we all know it's all about how it looks, right? OK, maybe not, but it's nice.
I like to bake these cookies just before guests arrive so that the buttery sweet smell fills the house and makes me feel like Mrs. Claus herself...
