The Twelve Days of Christmas at our house

Day 1 …..Hedgehog Cookies
The daughters have already been into these and say they are delicious.
You'll Need:
  • 1 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Melted Chocolate chips
  • Crushed walnuts
  1. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla; mix well. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture and mix well.
  2. Form cookies (in an oval shape with a pointed end) and place 2" apart on on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees F for 6-8 minutes or until set but not brown. Cool on wire racks.
  3. Dip 3/4 of cookies in melted chocolate and then in crushed walnuts. Dot two eyes and a nose!
