Cookies Around the World 5 of 5

"This is a great recipe for variety (English, French, Greek, German, Finnish, 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 red, green and yellow coloured sugar for the coating.

    Wonderful collection and it amazing that the final results for each addition results in a unique cookie with its own texture and taste. From this recipe I made the Mexican Swizzle Sticks which were a hit on my holiday traces. The light amount of cinnamon was just wonderful in these crispy wafers of joy. I will miss you my friend.
