Vanilla Icebox Sugar Cookies
This is a really cool idea from Chatelaine. It's just one recipe that you can make 20 different varieties. I did not follow the exact amount to put in the cookies. I just divided the recipe into 4, mixed one with chopped walnut, another with cocoa powder and nescafe, and one with walnut and cocoa powder. I made the remaining ones plain, and added chocolate on top of it, and it was the best ever!
I bought the cooking chocolate (unsweetened) from Bulk Barn, and mixed it in with a little bit of icing sugar, butter and milk, just tasting it as I add them so it will be just perfect. Then I spread it over the cookies. Hubby is not a big fan of chocolate cookies or cakes, but he went back for a second round, so it must be good.. hehe.
This is a really simple cookies, another keeper. I hope my friend and my cousin (who asked me to send her some too for her birthday) like them. I'm not sure if it is a good idea to post them, they might be broken into pieces before they get them.. or get stale... and the postage is not cheap, but it's worth a try.
Well Happy Birthday to my dear cousin ( who probably won't be reading my blog) and my best friend, the one who cheered me up when I was down, surprised me with gifts, one that never forgets my birthday and a dear friend that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Happy Birthday.
