RECIPE: Swedish Butter Cookie & Cornflake Macaroons

iris_galDecember 8, 2009

How do you save egg whites and only hard boil the yolks?

I have the water boiling, crack the egg and separate, leaving the yolk in the 1/2 shell. Then I lower that into the boiling water to hard cook.

It was worth it. I love this spritz-like cookie. Very delicate like the Pepperidge Farm cookies. Found in an old fund raiser cookbook.

Swedish Butter Cookies - by Fritzi Condee

1/2 C. butter

1/4 C. sugar

1/2 tsp. lemon or almond extract

1 C. flour, sifted

Cream butter, beat in sieved yolks, sugar and extract.

Stir in flour. Put through cookie gun.

I garnish with half a candied cherry or an almond cut in half lengthwise.

Ungreased sheet, 375 degrees, 10 min.
