Made a Boo Boo on my Ghost Recipe #Newsletter Blunder

I doubt there is such a #Newsletter Blunder, but for me there should be.

I sent my November newsletter out to my wonderful readers telling them my latest news and  sharing my ghost cookie recipe. Sounds like a good plan, eh, but I left out the cooking temperature and time. The cookies should be baked in a 350 F oven for 12-15 minutes until the edges are brown.

I also had the Gaelic term for nice *ss mysteriously end up in a title.  I blame that on my Highland Ghost.

So anyways, here is my recipe for ghost cookies:

img_20161027_173455Ghost Cookie Recipe

½ lb. butter at room temperature

1 ½ cups sugar

3 large eggs

1 tbsp. vanilla

1 tsp. almond extract

3 cups flour

1 tsp. baking powder

½ tsp. salt

  1. Cream sugar, butter, eggs, vanilla and extract.
  2. Sift flour, baking powder and salt together and add to the mixture
  3. Form dough into two patties, wrap each one and chill at least 3 hours (but I never do. I’m an impatient cook)
  4. Roll on a floured board (1/8 inch for thin and crispy cookies or ½ inch thick for a softer cookie)

Bake at 350 F, for 12 to 15 minutes (until the edges brown)

Use your favorite Royal Icing recipe to cover them (I use water and icing sugar) and slivers of chocolate chips for the eyes and mouth.
