KathrynApril <b>Peanut Butter Holiday Mice</b>
Ingredients:
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup butter (no substitutes), softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup peanut halves (though next time i might try out broken prezel bits & make them reindeer instead)
2 tablespoons green and red M& M minature baking bits
4 teaspoons minature semi sweet chocoate chips (for the eyes)
Cake decorator holly leaf & berry candies (optional)
60-66 pieces red shoestring licorice (2 inches each) (though if i try making them as reindeer next time i wont need this)

Yields about 5 dozen.

In a large mixing bown cream the peanut butter, butter, sugar and brown sugar. Beat in the egg and vanilla. In a seperate bowl combine the flour and baking soda, gradually add to the creamed mixture. Refrigerate for 1 hour or so.
Roll into 1-inch balls. Place on baking sheet/we used parchment paper on it. Then form the nose by pinching one end of the ball and tapering. Insert two peanut halves in center of each ball for the ears. Add one M&M baking bit for the nose on the tapered end. Push in two semi sweet chips for the eyes. I stuck the pointy end into the dough and seemed to give them cute big eyes. Add the holly & berries to around the ears.
Bake at 350 for 8-10 mins or until set. Insert one licorice piece into the warm cookie for the tail. Allow cookies to cool on wire racks

And link is a picture of the precooked versions. They kind of flattened out when I cooked them versus what they looked like in the magazine, but still adorable none the less. Nothing like festive cookies to say we are "on the road" to the holidays!!! | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Sure! It occurred to me I should specify the yield. I think the full recipe made 10-12 dozen cookies. It was something ridiculous.

But if you have lots of people to bake for, it isn't so ridiculous after all.

selzer Oh and this other recipe calls for Toasted Cashews. Now I found roasted cashews and honey roasted cashews and toaste pistachios and a dozed different kinds of almonds, but I can't find toasted cashews.

Should I put them on a cookie sheed and put them up onder the broiler element in the oven?

Will roasted be fine?

half of them will go in the crust, and these are supposed to go through a food processor (which I do not have), so I will be processing them a husband-beater (rolling pin). The rest are roughly chopped and mixed with with soft caramels, heavy cream and are poured into the prepared/baked/cooled crusts of the tarts before allowed to set.

Wild Wolf My grandma swore by this sugar cookie recipe.

I would strongly advise halving it, I ended up with a ridiculous number of cookies the first time I made it.

Sugar Cookies
ˇ 1 cup powdered sugar
ˇ 1 cup white sugar
ˇ 1 cup margarine or butter
ˇ 1 cup vegetable oil
ˇ 2 eggs
ˇ 1 tsp vanilla
ˇ 4 cups plus 4 heaping Tbsp flour
ˇ 1 tsp salt
ˇ 1 tsp soda
ˇ 1 tsp cream of tartar

Cream sugars, butter, and oil. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Sift flour, salt, soda, and cream of tartar and mix into the creamed mixture.

Roll into balls and press down with glass dipped in white sugar. (I had great luck with a pint glass, and you can do colored sugar for Christmas.)

Bake at 350 on an ungreased cookie sheet for 10-15 minutes.

Cool, I have always bought salted butter. But I am reading this cookery cookie book and they made a case for unsalted butter. After reading your recipe, I read the other from a link just after or before yours, and it was similar but called for unsalted butter and twice the salt.

Now I went out last night and bought supplies and bought both salted and unsalted butter. I wrote down your recipe and will use it with the salted butter. Thanks.

WateryTart That rolled sugar cookie recipe looks great - I've been looking for an easy one (yes I'm a lazy baker) and this would fit the bill!
