    CoolMonday's Note:

    This is a great recipe for variety (English, French, Greek, German, Flemish, Italian, Swedish, Norwegian, Turkish, Mexican). I have split them up two to a recipe but if you want them all, there are 5 separate recipes. They are made from one basic cookie dough. I think some of them may be posted individually, but at Christmas I make the entire variety. Each batch of basic dough makes a batch of two of the cookies with the ingredients I have listed.

      I used this recipe for my Wednesday night kid's club cooking class and it was perfect! I made up a big batch of the basic dough and then divided it into 4 of the variations. This recipe fit well into my 'around the year theme'

      I used a combination of the recipes from this collection as the dough is truly versatile and great for those making trays. From this perticlar version I made the Swedish ruby drops using finely chopped walnuts and apricot preserves. The cookies were easy and wonderfully tender. I will miss you my friend.
