The latest Hanukkah cookies.
s-so our family is roughly as late as three late things and we are having our Hanukkah party tomorrow night

we have a big yankee swap every year and being in college i don't really ever have much to contribute so i thought i'd make up a box of cookies and truffles

oreo cheesecake truffles

i know you're interested now

Sad naked truffles. :c
they're made by food processing a package of oreo cookies and mixing the whole thing in with an 8-ounce glub of cream cheese

roll them into balls and refrigerate for a short period of time until they stop being greasy and falling apart

they are delicious

e-especially after you cover them in chocolate and or more oreo crumblies

anyway here's a dreidel cookie for funsies
and the recipe for extra funsies:

delicious non-denominational sugar cookies

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (or less if you use salted butter)
      • 3/4 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  1. preheat oven to 325 degrees F (~165 C)
  2. combine the flour and salt in a middly-size bowl
  3. cream the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until it's super fluffy and awesome
  4. add the egg and vanilla and beat until well blended
  5. scrape down sides of bowl and add the flour mix and then beat it until it's combined BUT DON'T MIX IT TOO MUCH (it will seem like it is too dry and not mixy and terrible but do the next part anyway)
  6. gather the dough into a ball then make the ball into a disk and refrigerate until cold (like an hour or so)
  7. roll out dough on a floured surface or between two pieces of parchment paper (rubber spacers make uniform rolling easy)
  8. use cookie cutters to make fun shapes and then bake for 13 minutes

delicious non-denominational royal icing

$7.99 plus tax because connecticut is lame like that
  1. drive to joanne fabrics
  2. buy royal icing in a bottle
  3. once at home try to open the cap by stabbing
  4. after stabbing hand realize that cap twists open like glue
  5. microwave bottle according to package directions
  6. frost cookies
  7. decorate cookies with sugar if you want or just leave icing to dry
