Cookies on a cold day ~ mmmmm.
There is a book that I turn to every year during this season. It contains the most wonderful toffee recipe I've ever made. It has become a favorite Christmas cookie book. There is this sugar cookie recipe from the book. I can't speak highly enough of the recipes developed by Rose Levy Beranbaum, the high quality in the end result is always there.
I consider the lemon zest to be optional if I know these are being served with coffee.
I whip up an egg white with some water, paint it on the desired area with my finger - *shock and horrors* - then dredge it though sugar set aside in a bowl. The stamp ~ very fun.
