The twinkling lights scattered about, the warming smell of evergreen and cookies galore!
I love the sound of bells jingling, Christmas music and laughter. I love being surrounded by family and dear friends; exchanging cards and making gifts. I hate these days going by so fast...I want to relive each day over and over...I'm certain there is nothing more promising than December's light. There is something very blessed about these days, I can feel the magic in my soul.
Spiced Nut Cookies
1 package Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix
1/2 cup crushed nuts (preferably almonds)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon all spice
1/2 cup butter
1/2 teaspoons almond flavoring
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup confectioner's sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
In the bowl of your stand mixer, combine sugar cookie mix, crushed nuts, and spices. Add butter, almond flavoring, and vanilla.
Scoop about a teaspoon of cookie batter and flatten onto cookie sheets. You should get about 2 dozen cookies. Bake for about 8 - 10 minutes or until edges are just slightly golden. Let cookies sit for a few minutes on cookie sheet before transferring them to a wire rack. (They will be very soft and will tear apart if you don't let them rest first).
Once slightly cool, roll each cookie in confectioner's sugar and enjoy!
Oh yummy Tammy. I love great cookies. I think I gain a couple of pounds every time I visit here.
Have a fabulous day. My best to your mom. ☺

I always get cookie fever at Christmas time - looks like you two do too!
Tammy, I really like cookies like these but it's been a while since I've had any. Thanks for reminding me about them! We have to get busy making some cookies ourselves for company and Christmas house guests... Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
