Nutmeg Butter Sugar Cookies

They’re coming– 

And you know you want them.

You do, so stop denying it.

The holiday cookies are just waiting to overtake you, your scale, and bust that needle into a million unrecognizable pieces—until January 1 arrives, that is. 

This is a Swedish recipe. I’m part Norwegian, but what the heck—I make them anyway. We’re all from the same neck of the woods. 

These are quick, easy and good.

 1-2-3 Kakor

½ cup sugar

1 cup butter

2 cups flour

1-1/2 tsp. vanilla

Combine the 4 ingredients and roll into small balls. 

Make a deep impression in each ball with your thumb, and fill with jam of your choice. 

Bake on ungreased cookie sheet in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes. 

This recipe makes about 4 dozen cookies. 

“Becky Crocker” says: Match the jam colors to the holiday/occasion you are baking for. {Just kinda’ makes you want to tie on a vintage type apron, doesn’t it— ;-}

AUTHOR NOTE: Remember? I did tell you this blog site was about the 360-degree writing life. In December cookies ARE a part of my life. 😉
