The Return of Cookie Club

Good Morning dear readers, its that time again time for Cookie Club.  This is where I get to share new and old cookie recipes with you.  I don't know a lot of people locally so this is why I love sharing these recipes with you for the holidays.  This recipe also qualifies for the murder mystery genre.  It came from Christine Wenger book "Do or Diner".  You can even say its frugal because a lot of the ingredients can be found already in your pantry.  I've altered the recipe to fit my families needs.  So lets get to the recipe and here's what you'll need:

2 mixing bowls
1 metal spoon

2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cups butter melted in the pot
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. almond extract or any flavor you like i.e. vanilla or peppermint
1 egg
1 cup chocolate chips
you can add a cup of nuts which I omitted
1 cup confectioners sugar

First bowl add flour and salt together and sift
Second bowl add butter and sugar together
Add extract  and egg to wet mixture
Mix dry and wet ingredients together
Add chocolate chips and nuts(if your adding them) and stir with a strong spoon very thick mixture.
Here's a little trick I learned last year so the dough wont be sticky put in the freezer for 20 minutes
take out of freezer and roll into 1 inch balls
place on greased cookie sheet
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and cook for 15-20 minutes
Let cool slightly
Place in plastic bag with confectioners sugar and shake until covered
remove and Bon Appetite
