Here are are my finished cookies all ready to be delivered to my neighbours as a little festive treat.  I used one dough for all three cookies, and you could really use it for any shortbread based cookie.  For the Jammie Dodgers I just shaped into a ball, pressed a little indent in the middle and filled with blackcurrant jelly.  I added chocolate chips ot the dough, made a ball and squished it with a fork and drizzled chocoalte over for the Chocolate Chip Shorties, and for the crescents, I made a crescent shape, then after baking diffed the ends in melted chocolate (microwaved) and sprinkled crushed hazlenuts on the ends.

Easy Peasy Cookie Dough

1 pound butter (4 sticks, salted)
1 cup sugar
4 cups all purpose flour.

Preheat oven to 375.  Cream sugar and butter with light and fluffy, add flour.  Shape into balls or crescents etc, bake 15-18 mins until golden on the bottom. You can half this recipe with no side effects.

  1. These look great, I love pressed glass at the moment, there is something so genuine about it. These homemade cookies on vintage dishes are something I really want to do next Christmas - I wonder if I will remember in time though.


I love to read each and every comment and are thrilled that you take the time to send one. Thank you so much. Chania
