Cookies with your coffee

Thought you would like cookies with your coffee. Here is a recipe. Enjoy!! :-)



4 eggs, well beaten
2 cups white sugar
1 cup butter
4 cups white flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp nutmeg

Cream together the eggs, vanilla, sugar, and butter. Sift together dry ingredients and add to the creamed mixture. Mix well.

Spray a * jelly roll pan with baking spray and spread cookie dough evenly to all sides. You can always sprinkle the top with flour and use a rolling pin like I did!

*A jelly roll pan is 17-1/2' x 12-1/2' x 1' deep. It is a baking sheet with sides so the batter does not slip off. A lot of people use jelly roll pans as cookie sheets.

Bake in the oven at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or so, until top is golden.

6 cups icing sugar (powder sugar) (can add a bit more to stiffen icing)
1 cup butter
1/2 milk
2 tsp almond extract
several drops of food coloring

Whip together icing ingredients until light and fluffy. Spread evenly over cooled cookie bars.

Slice cookie bars and serve

My Cuisinart Coffee Maker

This was a gift. I am so happy to have it. it's been a while since I had an automatic coffee maker. I used a portable one.

The middle picture was my coffee maker when I couldn't afford an electric one. It makes coffee very well. It uses a #2 filter #Melitta. I really like it. Great for traveling.

Reusable KCup Filter

This will definitely come in handy especially if you travel.

I love this machine. No fuss, no boiling water, no filter.  A great buy. Just put in your favorite coffee, tea or hot chocolate.
