Monday Morning Coffee

The Christmas mice have returned.  They come to visit every year!


I love having coffee with them, they share great memories!  Can you see them?  Look close!


Maybe, just maybe, they were the stable mice of long ago.  Just saying....


I found this cute Christmas Mice Cookie recipe at
The Happier Homemaker's place.

Christmas Mice Cookies

Cute, almond-y cookies shaped like little mice.


Ingredients

3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 large egg
1/4 cup sliced almonds
pull apart twizzlers
mini chocolate chips
black frosting or melted chocolate for eyes

1. In electric mixer, add the butter and whip on high speed until fluffy. Add sugar slowly, then egg and almond extract and continue to mix an additional 2 minutes.

2. In a separate bowl mix flour and salt.

3. Slow mixer speed to low and slowly add flour mixture 1/3 at a time. Mix until uniform.

4. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and chill an hour.

5. Preheat over to 350 degrees. Roll dough into balls, tapering one end to form mouse shape.

6. Pinch tapered end to form mouse’s head and insert almonds for ears.

7. Bake 20 minutes or until lightly browned.

8. Immediately upon removing from oven poke a hole in the bottom with a skewer or toothpick and insert twizzler “tail.” Add mini chocolate chip for nose (it’s important to do this when the mice are still very hot as the heat melts the chip to the cookie and adheres the tail as well.)

9. Cool on cookie rack. When cookie is completely cook add “eyes” from frosting or melted chocolate with fine tip tip.

Cute and Yummy!


Until Next Time
Praising God for sending His only Son that we might have everlasting life.
Merry Christmas
