Mommy's Knots - Thanks Liz!
|1/2 lb (2sticks)||butter|
|8 oz||cream cheese|
|5 tsp||baking powder (HINT: Don't use baking soda! They'll explode! - Just kidding!!!)|
|1 tsp||Anisette flavoring (Liz uses Vanilla instead, also lemon, coconut or anything else you want!)|
|Some||confectioners sugar (for icing)|
Put this icing on all or only some cookies. The knots are good with or without icing and toppings!
Mix confectionary sugar with flaving (vanilla, lemon, anisette - make several types if you're making alot, like for a holiday!) and dip cookie tops. (Dave notes: Add jimmies (the little hard, round kind, not the longer softish kind :) ) or any other cutesey-wootsey sparkley topping you want! Have fun!)
If you don't know what jimmies are... you're not related! Tough!
