przepis na następne święta

christmas cookies. sugar cookies, molasses cookies and if we are feeling really adventurous, we make gingerbread too. this year we planned to bake all three but only got to one on the list. the sugar cookies. truth be told i am not a very good baker. i am not sure why since baking is an exact science, but i have managed to master the sugar cookie. here is my recipe...
what you will need:
3 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup white sugar
1 cup butter
1 egg, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract preheat oven to 400 degrees. in a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. cut in butter and blend with a pastry blender. stir in lightly beaten egg, cream, and vanilla. blend well. chill dough for to hours before rolling. lightly dust surface and polling pin with powdered sugar. roll out dough to be 1/8 inch thickness. sprinkle with white sugar and cut into desired shapes. transfer to baking sheets and bake for 6-8 minutes.
we also like to make holiday potpourri every year on the stove top. it makes the house smell incredible.
you will need:
one orange
one lemon
two bay leaves
1 cinnamon stick
1/4 cup whole cloves
cute orange and lemon into thick slices. put all ingredients into saucepan and cover with water. simmer on stove top adding water during the day as needed.

a tak wyglądały nasze pierniczki. sesję z ich powstawania umieszczę później
