The Monday Recipe Blog
This blog features Lois Elaine Mueller's recipes every Monday. Lois' heyday was in the 1950's and 1960's, and her children swear she was the best cook that ever lived. Many baby boomers will remember these mouth-watering recipes, and these dishes are just as tasty today as they were in the sixties.
The Mueller family loved the holiday season, and Lois Elaine used the holidays as an excuse to bake great cookies and desserts. As the holidays approach again this year, I will post more of Lois Elaine's Thanksgiving and Christmas recipes.
I have made these butter cookies many times, and they are to die for. If you only make one batch of cookies for the holidays, it should be these!
Lois Elaine's Butter Cookies:
4 c. sifted flour
3/4 lb. butter
1/4 lb. butter substitute
3/4 c. butter
4 egg yolks (save the whites)
3/4 c. almonds, ground
Mix together like pie crust. Add the egg yolks.
Roll real thin and cut with a cookie cutter. Put a little egg white and ground almonds on each cookie.
Bake at 350 degrees on an ungreased baking sheet for about 8 minutes.
