This morning I woke up to find my 100th follower listed on my dashboard!
I can't believe that so many people have found this little blog out there in blogland, and in honor of all of you I'd like to have my very first give-away!
This lovely little dish is perfect to use on your own holiday table for cookies or candy - or you could fill it with some of your own home-baked cookies for a holiday hostess gift.
It measures 6 1/2" square.
To win this sweet little plate please leave a comment on this post telling me what kind of homemade treat you would fill it with.
If you leave a link to a favorite cookie or candy recipe, or include your recipe in a second comment, you double your chances to win!
The winner will be chosen by FHFB on Sunday evening, December 5th and posted on Monday.
Here's a recipe for a favorite cookie of ours here at Frog Hollow Farm. My mother-in-law Maria made these often, not only during the holidays. Maria was a phenomenal cook and introduced me to so many traditional Italian foods!
These cookies are FHFB's favorite cookie, he calls them "Rolled Cookies"and once you take your first bite you will understand why he loves them.
Maria's Rolled Cookies
2 cups sifted flour
1 cup butter
3/4 cup sour cream
1 egg yolk - slightly beaten
Mix flour and butter until crumbly, then add sour cream and egg yolk, mix well with your hands. Divide the dough into 3 balls and refrigerate over night.
Roll out each ball of dough like a pizza. Use a little flour on the counter to keep the dough from sticking and cut each circle into 16 pieces. Brush the top of each circle with the remaining beaten egg white then sprinkle the filling (below) over the entire circle. Roll each triangle into a crescent shape, starting with the widest end, and bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.
Use parchment paper for an easy clean-up.
1 cup of ground walnuts (or pecans, hazelnuts)
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
If you get to try this recipe I'd love to know about it!
