Swiss Alps Cookies

One of the prettiest cookies on my holiday cookie tray and absolutely DELICIOUS! You'll want to hide a few away for yourself, though, because they are always the first to disappear! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! (photo from taste of home)

How to Make Swiss Alps Cookies


  • 1In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well.
    Shape into 1-in. balls; place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Make a deep indentation in the center of each cookie. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until the edges just start to brown. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
