Penny's Story

From my neighbor - each year we trade plates of Holiday cookies - she gave me this basic recipe for a basic cookie mix and five recipes that use the mix probably a good 15 years ago. It's a real time saver! You can even make it up and use it year round if you have a houseful of cookie hounds.

I think she got the recipe in one of those little holiday cookie cookbooks by Pillsbury you find at the grocery store check out during the holidays.

Ingredients

6 c
all purpose flour
3 1/2 c
sugar
1 Tbsp
baking powder
2 tsp
salt
2 c
unsalted butter

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a 4 quart bowl or container, combine 1/2 each of the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
2
With a fork or pastry blender, cut half the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
3
Repeat the first two steps with the remaining ingredients. Transfer the mix to a tightly covered container. Store in the freezer or refrigerator for up to 4 weeks.
4
When you are ready to make cookies, remove the amount you need and let it come to room temperature before adding the other ingredients to make the recipes.
