Cookie-A-Day #2

Here is a little ditty devoted to our Aunt's "ChristmasTree" Christmas cookie!
Oh Cookie Baum
Oh Christmas cookie, oh Christmas cookie
We made you oh so hasty
Oh Christmas cookie, oh Christmas cookie
Your dough of almond Paste (eeey)
you started as a pile of mush
your not a tree, more like a bush
Oh Christmas cookie oh Christmas cookie
You really were quite tasty

Pictured is the cookie cut in half. This is #2 for our Countdown to Christmas Cookie-A-Day! This cookie is the second to the last in yesterdays photo.

1 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 cup flour
1 cup finely chopped nuts
1 bag of chocolate kisses
green sugar
powdered sugar.

Mix everything butter, sugar, vanilla, flour, and nuts. Form the "tree" around the chocolate kiss. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes. While cookie is still warm roll in powdered sugar and sprinkle with green sugar. There you have it! Yummy little "Christmas Trees".
