Grandma Knodel was always known for baking too many cookies at Christmas time and for giving everyone socks for Christmas. We miss grandma very much this year and will also miss her cookie and socks traditions. In rememberence of Grandma Knodel her cookie recipes live on... ;-)
Here is one of my FAVORITE cookie recipes from Grandma Knodel.
1 1/4 cup softened butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
3 1/4 cups flour
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix all ingredients together until nice and creamy.
Use a small or medium scoop and form cookie balls. Dip or roll in colored sugar sprinkles, or cinnamon and sugar mixture. Put on cookie sheet and bake for 9-10 minutes. Place pure chocolate kiss on top of cookie - press into the cookie just a little bit - then put back in oven for about 2 minutes.
Simple and delicious! Thanks Grandma Knodel!
