Meg will give away a copy of SANTA PAWS to one lucky commenter.....
SANTA PAWS -- The last thing Lacey Gordon—divorced with a teen daughter and two cats—needs is a rescue dog coming into her life. To top it off, she's rooked into a "Get Under the Mistletoe by Christmas Eve" dating contest. Since Buddy the dog prefers to be the only "new guy" in Lacey's life, will Santa Claws ruin her holiday for good?
Here's my recipe and a short "story" about the cookie recipe. Stole it from Betty Crocker's website, since my mom always used her old cookbook to make these....
Mom had a special silver tray that she placed a variety of Christmas cookies in rows -- and my favorite was the Russian Tea Cake.
After rolling the dough into balls and baking, you roll them twice in powdered sugar. The cookie itself is a bit dry and crumbly, but I love love love them with Hot Cinnamon Spice tea from Harney & Sons, or a nice mocha latte. Mmmm! They're fairly easy to make, too. If you use all butter, the balls will melt down to half circles. I usually use half butter and half margarine.
