This was the very first recipe I ever made by myself.  

I was about 11 years old. 

Yes I have been cooking pretty much my whole life, remember this picture? You can read about it here. 

Anyways, I was an interesting child.  Normal children ask for toys for Christmas.  Not me.

I asked for a Mixer. 

Yeah, like a kitchen aid.

And no, I didn’t actually get a Kitchen Aid, I got a cheap knock-off.  But I didn’t care.  I was thrilled about my new mixer, and ended up making these cookies to test it out! 

I grew up eating these cookies, especially during Christmas time.   They are basically a shortbread cookie, and they are delicious!

Here is the recipe! 

I actually made this dough a while back and froze some cookie dough to see if they would turn out.  It turns out that it freezes great, and I just had to cook them a little bit longer and they were just as delicious! 

PS: I still don’t own a Kitchen Aid mixer. 

Maybe one day.   🙂

Linking up to these parties!
