Christmas Cookies and love

This past weekend, I had the priviledge of being at a church in Indianapolis that was passing out food for Christmas.  16,000 pounds of food!  Many K-LOVE listeners came to volunteer and handed out food.  And many K-LOVE listeners came to receive some food for their families.

After a trip through the plentiful food line, with full bags and happy hearts, people were invited to a room with hot chocolate, coffee, and Christmas cookies.  The youth group was passing out the goodies, spending the last Saturday before Christmas serving others.

And the cookies were exceptionally yummy:)  I made a point to visit the cookie room several times on Saturday:)  I chatted with several families as they sat at tables and enjoyed Christmas cookies.  We heard many stories of God providing, and many hopes for this Christmas and the future.

You know, there's just something about Christmas cookies.  They warm the heart.  I tried the no-bake cookies (that I hadn't tasted for years--so good!), sugar cookies with fun frostings, snickerdoodles and, well, many others:)

IF by chance today you are pulling out your Chrismtas cookie recipes to make the heart-warming favorite of your family, share the recipe here with us!  Maybe we'll make your cookies this year!

And thank you River of Life Church in Indianapolis for reaching out to others in such a big way, with love, presents, food, and cookies:)

Merry Christmas,


PS:  My family's favorite Christmas cookie...


Cream together: 1 C flour, 1 C softened butter, and 1/4 C brown sugar.  Pat into a 9x13 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.  While that crust is baking, stir together:  2 eggs, 2 tsp flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 C chopped nuts, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 1/2 C brown sugar, and 3/4 C coconut.  Spread over the cooled crust and bake for 25 minutes.  Cut into bars and dust with powdered sugar.  Enjoy!  My Momma made these cookies every year when I was a kid:)

Our Christmas tradition is to make Tamalies!After living in California for 38 years, it was a must to learn how to make tamalies (I taught high school in mostly hispanic populations). We moved to Missouri several years ago, and now I have friends and families that look forward to the Christmas gift of a dozen tamalies that they get from my family each year. All three of my kids get involved in helping make them, and I am told that they are GREAT!

I have a very easy and delicious cookie recipe.  They are called turtle cookies.  You only need the snack size pretzels, hershey caramel kisses and pecan halves.  Lay the pretzels on a cookie sheet.  Place an unwrapped hershey kiss on each pretzel.  Bake at 300 for 3 minutes.  Removed from oven and place a pecan half on each, spreading the kiss into the pretzel.  Let cool.  They are delicious and easy.

The last year my mom was with us, she gave my daughter a “Night Before Christmas” book with fun facts and ideas about Christmas; including Mrs. Claus’s recipe for Santa’s favorite Cookies.  Even as my children have grown into teenagers, we still have a tradition of baking these cookies the night before Christmas Eve and although Mom is no longer with us, we are reminded of the beautiful love she left behind.

Bake a batch of chocolate chip cookies in a sheet cake pan.  When they are just about done put some mini marshmallows onto and put the pan back in the oven so the marshmallows melt together.  In the meantime melt some chocolate chips in the microwave (a hint of oil helps it from hardening).  Drizzle he chocolate over the marshmallows and toss some M&Ms on top.  Not too sure what these are called, besides DELICIOUS!

Kuchen (German for cake) is a year-round delicacy here in Germany, but before we moved over here, we used to make it for Christmas.  You take the dough and shape it like a pie crust, spread the custard over it, then place canned fruits on top.  We love peaches, apples, or sweet cherries, but you can use any sweet fruit!  Spread more custard, then sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar.

Kuchen Dough:
2 packages dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
3 cups hot water
1 cup shortening
3/4 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 Tablespoon salt
9 cups flour

Soak yeast in 1/2 c. warm water.  Pour hot water over shortening, salt and sugar, let stand until lukewarm.  Add beaten eggs, vanilla and the yeast mix.  Add flour and let raise.

Kuchen Custard
6 cups milk
6 eggs
6 Tablespoons flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
pinch salt

Put all ingredients together except vanilla,  and cook in microwave until thick.  Add vanilla afterwards.

NOTE:  This is a triple batch for 11 kuchen.  Great for giving away, or freezing and enjoying in later months!

I have used this Cut-out Sugar Cookie recipe for years. This cookie stays soft! I put them in a cool place and store them for a month and they are still soft. This year my daughter and son invited friends (aged 17 - 22 years old) to the decorating party. We had a blast! This is a fun recipe.

Sallie’s Old Fashioned Sugar Cookies:
Cream together 1 ½ cup sugar with 1 cup butter and 2 eggs
Add:      1 cup sour cream
                1 tsp baking soda
                1 heaping tsp baking powder
                Pinch of salt
                2 caps of vanilla
Mix together with mixer
Add enough flour to make dough soft (about 3 cups)
Chill cookie dough overnight, roll out, cut into shapes, bake at 375 degrees until they have a real nice tan. Don’t over bake.
Cool and decorate in your favorite way.
Cookies stay soft even days later.

Oreo Balls
1 package Oreo cookies crushed
1 8 oz package softened cream cheese
1 bag each semisweet and white chocolate chip for dipping

Mix the crushed oreos and cream cheese together. Roll into walnut sized balls and place on cookie sheet to freeze. Let set for about 30 minutes before melting down the chocolate for coating.
For easy coating, use a toothpick to pick up the oreo balls. Dunk into the chocolate of your choice and then place back on the cookie sheet to harden. Use remaining chocolate to drizzle on top of the oreo balls.

These are more of a truffle than a cookie but they are AMAZING! <3

On the Oreo balls, it is better to dip them in the white "almond bark" that you can get in the grocery store.  It cuts down on the sweetness and makes them more irresistable.  We make these several times a year.

I love reading all the recipes. Every saturday I bake cookies or bars for sunday morning. I fix two different kinds of sweets.Then sunday morning comes along and I have coffee and sweets for the people. I so enjoy watching the kids(of all ages) as they try the treats. I make the treats small so kids can get more than one. Adults can just pop one and go. Everyone have a very Merry Christmas.

"Love KLOVE"!  I LOVE,the support and commitment that KLOVE stands for. I rely on KLOVE.  All capitols, to emphasise the degree of ministry KLOVE represents. I have been listening to 91.1 since the days of KWBI, Colo. Christian university.  Those who served,died and began the ministry.  Only recently, I once again turned to CHRISTIAN radio in order to be up-lifted and  blessed in my daily life.  We all strugle with our sinful nature and worldly "confines", that we allow others to dictate what we are "TOLD" to do and be,by society.  During this Holiday season we tend to get wrapped up in the commercial things of Christmas.  "We hav'nt done our shopping yet", we only have a few more days left, and, and, etc.  I am in a position this Christmas and every other Christmas, that It is only another day and we need to live each day as God allows. After all, our days are numbered by God and God alone.  Thank You KLOVE! To God be the GLORY in all things GREAT and Small. I am praying and thanking GOD for our radio station,all the artists and everyone who is serving GOD through this ministry. GOD BLESS and THANK YOU! T. Bell
