My grandmother bought this candy when I was a child. It was so colorful and fun! Since we sell it at Bernideen's I tried to think of a way to come up with a recipe for it and what's better than sugar cookies anyway?
Today I am participating with Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage & Inspirations
Sugar Cookies with Ribbon Candy
You will need to purchase one box of ribbon Candy!
Ingredients: 1 cup of butter, 1 tsp vanilla,1 ½ cups of sugar ( in high alt. Decrease 1 1/2 Tb), 3 eggs,31/2 cups sifted flour, 2 tsp cream of tartar, 1 tsp soda (in high alt reduce ¼ tsp),1/2tsp salt
This recipe will make 24 large or 36 med-large cookies
Preheat oven to 375 degrees (400 high alt)
Cream butter & vanilla and add sugar gradually till fluffy. Add eggs one at a time and beat after each. Sift dry ingredients together. Add this to creamy mix. Chill for about 30 minutes
Roll on floured surface –sprinkle with candy which has been crushed with a mallet. Cut to desired shapes and bake on ungreased sheet for about 8 minutes. No need for icing here as the candy makes each cookie colorful!
Bet you can't eat just ONE!
