Cinnamon Nut Shortbread Cookies

These cookies are a lovely little shortbread cookie topped with cinnamon laced nuts. They are really tasty and because they are a bar cookie they are also a great time saver. You just make a batch of dough and press it into a small jelly roll pan. Top with egg white and a cinnamon nut mixture and bake. As soon as they come out of the oven cut them into little strips. I got nearly 100 out of one batch. It depends on the size you cut them. If you are looking for a simple, yet wonderful cookie, you might want to try these.

Cookie “Candies”

These oatmeal shortbread cookies are one of my must-do cookies every holiday season. The dough is  molded into little shapes then baked. They keep their shape pretty well. Once cooled the cookie are dipped in melted chocolate and then dipped in assorted toppings like sprinkles, coconut or sprinkles. They end up looking like little candies. A great cookie and fun for kids to help decorate.
