Last Christmas, we visited my family's farm in Rogersville, Tennessee and stayed at the Hale Springs Inn. What a beautiful place filled with so much history! I'm not going to veer too far off course here though, we are talking about cookies! Well, My Aunt Sallie had made these cookies for our celebration and I fell in love. They are simple to make and though take like a regular butter cookie when you first bite into it, after you let it simmer and melt into your mouth, you want more. I would suggest these to anyone who is trying to watch their weight because you can't just eat one.
What You Will Need:
A Cookie Press
1 Cup Unsalted Butter (softened)
1 Cup White Sugar
1 Tsp. Vanilla
3 Cups Self Rising Flour
Pinch of Salt
Preheat Your Oven to 350 Degrees.
Mix First Four Ingredients
Add flour, one cup at a time. You will need to mix by hand the last cup.
Roll onto a cylinder and dive into three sections.
Press into Cookie Press.
You should be able to get at least nine cookies on a small cookie sheet. They don't rise that much.
Bake about 8 minutes. 10-12 minutes the edges with brown.
You will want to let them cool but they are amazing fresh out of the oven.
