Amish Snickerdoodles…Just right with a cuppa tea

Buttery Amish Snickerdoodles and tea…

 

I’m so lonesome for my Ozark cousins and friends!

I miss that refreshing Southern Hospitality! Those big bear hugs and the exclamations, “I’m jus’ so glad to see ya! Y’all come on in now and have some tea.” And tea will be served with a little something…cookies, pie or a slice of cake.

Growing up, my Momma always had a stash of cookies somewhere.  Just in case somebody dropped by. Good manners…good Southern manners dictate you offer food with an iced or hot beverage.

Well, I can’t make a trip to Missouri…but I did bake some cookies. I love these buttery Amish Snickerdoodles. Hope you’ll try them and let me know what you think!

 

Amish Snickerdoodles

1 cup butter
2 eggs
1-1/2 cups sugar
2-3/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons cream of tarter
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

Combine the following:
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon

* Cream the butter and sugar thoroughly. Add the eggs one at a time, stirring in between.
* Sift together the flour, cream of tarter, baking soda and salt. Add to the first mixture.
* Form the cookie dough into balls (walnut size). Roll into mixture of sugar and cinnamon.
* Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes at 375 degrees. Cookies will flatten into circles as they cook.

Serve with tea!!

* **These store well in sealed container***

 

 

May everyday be your cup of tea!

Bourbon Balls & Velveeta Cheese Fudge

One year in the late 1960’s when we were poor, newly married and college students, we decided to give all our family Bourbon Balls for Christmas. These were popular with our friends and we had lots of fun making them ! They are easy and fast and just need a day or two to blend all the flavors.

My daughter & son-in-law gave me a sweet little Christmas with Paula Deen book, full of stories and recipes…my favorite kind of cookbook ! The most unusual recipe in the book, and maybe the most unusual recipe I’ve ever seen, is the “Chocolate Cheese Fudge. It calls for Velveeta Cheese ! I mean, if you are from the South, Velveeta Cheese is a staple ! But I have never heard of it being used in a recipe for Fudge !! I had to try it. It’s tasty…not really a gourmet fudge, but good and quite unique!

Hope you enjoy the recipes and may your Christmas be full of joy and peace and lots of tea !!
