The arrival of the annual Christmas Ideals Christmas magazine was something to which my family looked forward in the months before Christmas. These publications came with a glossy cover and a few colour photos inside depicting a winter Christmas scene or the tasty looking tray of Christmas cookies.
This week’s recipes come from the 1979 Ideals book, Christmas Gifts From the Kitchen. ••• Drop by teaspoonfuls abut 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Stamp each cookie with the bottom of a glass that has been dipped in sugar. Bake until cookies are light brown around the edges. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
••• ingredients, fruit and nuts.
Spread dough in pans and bake at 350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes. Cool. Cut into bars.
••• for one hour or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pans on rack for 10 minutes then remove from pans and cool thoroughly on rack. Wrap tightly in foil. Allow flavours to mellow overnight before serving.
