CULINARY ARTS: 3 Christmas cookies you can easily bake

Published: Thursday, December 13, 2012 at 10:42 AM.

While the oven warms, turn each cookie over and put a drop of apricot brandy in each moist spot. (This is cool: when the cookies bake, the brandy causes them to “pop” and become rounded.)

Bake the cookies about 20 minutes, watching them after about 15 minutes.

Let them cool and put them in an airtight tin or plastic container to soften. Adding an apple slice may help the process.

Roll the cookies in powdered sugar. You can also frost the cookies; don’t put an apple slice in the container if you do this.

If you want to frost the cookies, make frosting from confectioners’ sugar, egg white and a bit of water. Brush the glaze over the cookie, let it dry partially, and then roll the cookie in confectioners’ sugar.
