Default Re: Christmas cookies

I had planned to make a few more cookies but DD needed to make a tray up early for work (today is the last day everyone will be there till after Christmas). I may still make the ones I had planned because I bought the ingredients.

Here is her work tray.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

I want to make two more cookies which would make 13 varieties (a bakers dozen). But I'm not sure my hands and shoulders can handle it. BUT I'm going to try! LOL

Spectacular job, Peep!

Those Pecan Puffs look like Russian Teacakes which were my brother's favorites. Pretty much flour and butter, right?

And the perennial favorite Toll House.

Made 4 dozen-ish of each.

Thank you Lee. Yes they are also called tea cakes.

Your cookies look wonderful. The chocolate ones look fantastic. I'll have to try those.

Is the "unsweetened chocolate" Baker's chocolate?

Thanks, Peep.

Yes, I made a double batch, so used two packages.

They are messy to make, but SO worth it!

How many cookies did you get from 1 recipe? And how much did they spread while baking?

Good Lord..
Note to self: never use Pillsbury refrigerated cookie dough to make thumbprint cookies.
The first batch collapsed and spread out, with no sign of thumbprint lol
I had to half each dough ball in this batch, then re-thumb once they cooled.
Ugh..

They look wonderful Sass.

I learned a few tricks/tips over the years.

My thumbprint cookie tips:

#1 - Make the thumbprint/indent with a pestle dipped in powdered sugar if you have one.
#2 - Fill the thumbprint BEFORE baking.

Peep,

A single batch makes about 2 dozen (Cook's Illustrated says to make 22). I put a dozen on each sheet and they didn't run into each other. The cookies are very much like a brownie, so rolling the batter into balls is messy.

I have never filled thumbprint cookies before baking them. Didn't know you could! Well, whaddaya know!

Sass, your cookies look good to me!
