Icebox Cookies

                           Wishing you all a Happy Christmas


Icebox cookies are often called as refrigerator cookies,since the cookie dough is rolled into a log and refrigerated till it becomes firm then sliced and baked.

The original recipe is with egg,candied cherries since my family doesn't like the smell of cherries I made it with candied orange peel once for my son's party in school without nuts and eggs(due to allergy).To replace the eggs I used baking soda and used an extra pinch of baking powder,milk.Today I made this cookies with tutty frutty and pistachios,these cookies are simply addictive,crunchy,perfect for holiday baking.Here goes the recipe...

Ingredients

IngredientQuantity
All purpose flour1cup
Butter/Vegetable shortening1/2cup
Sugar1/2cup
Pistachios(chopped)2tbs
Tutty frutty3tbs
Vanilla extract1/2tsp
Salta pinch
Baking powder1/2tsp+a pinch
Baking soda1/8tsp

Method

                               In a bowl add the sugar and butter,beat it until creamy and fluffy with an electric hand blender.Add the vanilla extract and blend it.Now add in the flour mixture and milk,mix it until it forms a dough with the blender.Add the pistachios and tutti frutti and fold it till it gets evenly distributed.
Now smooth out and roll the dough into a log on a parchment paper or butter paper and wrap it,keep it in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
After an hour take out from the refrigerator and slice it to 1/4 inch thickness with a sharp knife,arrange it on a baking tray.Bake it for 10-12 minutes at 375 F or until golden,remove and cool it on a wire rack completely.
Store in air tight container.
Enjoy.......
  • Keep the cookies on the baking tray at least 1 inch apart since the cookies raise it needs enough space.
  • Dried cranberries can also be added and use a sharp knife for slicing.
  • Take out from the oven once its golden color or after 10 minutes of baking even if it is soft,it becomes crispy once its cool down completely.
  • Keep the sliced cookies in the refrigerator,if the cookies needs to be baked in 2-3 batches.
  • If the dough is crumbly add couple of tbs of milk to get it soft.
