Our Advent Sunday afternoons are turning into simple family moments this season. This Sunday, while Nels took the girls off for a bit of Christmas craft supply shopping, I did a thorough clean and made some thumb cookies--our current favorite Christmas cookie. After everyone got home, we pulled down the Christmas decorations and books from the attic, built a fire, unwrapped the decorations one by one, and each found our favorite books.
Here's the thumb cookie recipe:
Cream 1/2 lb butter and 1/2 c sugar. Add 2 egg yolks and 1 tsp vanilla. Add 2 c flour. Refrigerate 24 hours (although I only did for an hour), roll in balls, press down the center, fill with jam.
375 for 10 minutes. Pretty simple recipe!
