ANGEL COOKIES

Photobucket

Hey guys am back!!!!
I know i've been disappearing for quite a long time....But you know what it is like to spend some quality time with your loved ones.......Ofcourse I was in India for about 2 months..........Oh My!!! I couldnt explain how busy i was for 2 months shopping,attending parties,dinners......I was so spoilt.....

I just dropped by few of ur blogs and i couldt believe i missed them all......

Ok then lets get back to our cooking world....I made these cookies a long time back following the instruction on the back of a Flour Packet...They called them Sugar cookies.....But i'd love to call them the Angel Cookies b'coz they melted so fast in my mouth and looked sooo wonderful like Angel..........I would've done far better(coming to the shape)if i had used shortening,granulated sugar instead of butter,Confectioners sugar....B'coz using butter and regular sugar they melted in the oven and came out pretty flat rather than the cookie look....But heres the original recipe

INGREDIENTS:Yields 3 dozen cookies

All purpose flour-------------1 Cup
Shortening-------------------3/4 Cup
Sugar--------------------------1-1/2 Cup
Salt--------------------------3/4 tsp
Vanilla Extract-------------1 tsp
Roasted nuts-----------------2/3 Cup of ur choice

DIRECTIONS:

1.Preheat Oven to 325 deg. F.

2.Beat shortening & confectioners sugar until light and creamy.

3.Add salt & vanilla & beat to combine.Add flour at low speed, blending just to combine.Stir in nuts.

4.On a lightly floured board, press dough out to approximately 1/4" thickness and Cut out cookies with 1 1/2" round cookie cutter.

5.Place on a tray maintaining some gap.Bake 7-8 minutes. Note: they don't brown, so they will still be white when you pull them out of the oven.

6.Cool them and pop it into your mouth!!!!
