A Childhood Cookie Favorite ~

Genite Cookies ~ Our favorite Christmas Cookies ~ we make these special cookies only at Christmas, this recipe was pasted down from my Italian Grandmother.

Bake 350* for 15 minutes

12 eggs beaten

add ~ 3/4 lb. butter - melted & cooled
2 c. sugar
1 t. anise oil or vanilla
10 c. flour
3 T. baking powder

Roll into rope shapes & 'tie' the dough in a little knot ~ Frost with powder sugar frosting.

Cookies make great gifts. Everyone loves cookies. And they're easy to package in a creative way. We like making an assortment of cookies best ~ a vintage lunch box filled with the classics in our home would be: Genite, Peanut Butter Blossoms, & Gingerbread boys & girls.

Brown bags also make great packages for cookies, Stamp the bag first, or wrap a ribbon around the bag thats as wide as the bag itself.

Merry Christmas!!

Glad & Celia
