Swedish Cookies


1 cup butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 cup walnuts, chopped fine
1 1/2 c sifted flour
1 tsp vanilla

Mix in order given. Roll out like a pie crust and cut out with a round cookie cutter. Bake 325 degree oven for 15-20 min (until lightly browned.) Take off cookie sheet while still warm and dip in granulated sugar. You could add red and green sprinkles, if you wish. I discovered Parchment Paper helps as you don't grease cookie sheet with this recipe.

K o l a c h y



1/2 (1 cube Blue Bonnet)
1 pkg (3 oz) cream cheese
1 cup sifted flour
1 cup apricot/pinapple jam
Powdered sugar

Cream Blue Bonnet with cream cheese. Work in flour. Roll out thin and cut with round cookie cutter Put scant tsp of jam in center and fold over sides to center of cookie. Jam will squish out some. Bake at 325 degrees 15 min on greased cookie sheet ( or use parchment paper is best) When light brown and while warm, take off cookie sheet and cool on racks. Sifted powdered sugar over all. (Doesn't make very many so double the recipe for 2 doz.)
