What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday?---More C-C Dookies!

 Yep...holidays keeping me out of my craft room and in my kitchen instead. I was bored today with making the same ole c-c-dookies, so I browsed through my cookie books and decided to try these cookies. I found this recipe online at Taste of Home.Just had to show the groupies over at What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday....notice there is no picture of my kitchen.........


Eggnog Thumbprints

2/3 cup of butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs, separated
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup finely chopped walnuts


In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla. Gradually stir in the flour, salt and nutmeg and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm.


In a small bowl, whisk egg white until foamy. Shope dough into 1 inch balls; dip in egg whites, then roll in walnuts. Place 2 inches apart baking sheets coated with cooking spray. ( I use a silpat baking sheet ungreased)


Using a wooden spoon handle, make a 1/2 inch indentation in the center of each ball. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until center is set. Carefully remove from pans and cool on wire racks. Pipe in filling. (recipe below)

 Frosting

1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon of rum extract
2 to 3 teaspoons of milk
food coloring if desired.

 Oh and then I decided to make these too.




 White Chocolate Cranberry Blondies

Spritz Blossoms

Lol, now that's hardly fair is it? tempting us with cookies that we won't get to taste!! Love the sound of the cranberry blondies, my favourite recipe at this time of year are my so called Christmas Cookies which are orange, cranberry and pecan. SO yummy. And last week my lovely husband came up with a cranberry & orange shortbread which just melts in the mouth!

Those look awesome esp. the first one. Question...do you think the frosting is absolutely necessary? My kids hate frosting (I know!)...

Pat's little corner of the world said...

And mine will be sent on what day?
Everything looks yummy...I also like your cards and things.
