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!
