Rolled Cookie Recipes in Bird Shapes for the Christmas Holidays

Cookies have been created, prepared and published by gourmets, bakers, cooks, chefs, cooking editors and boys and girls since the beginning of time. Like all of you, I reminisce with household names like Betty Crocker, Ann Pillsbury, Genevieve Callahan and Better Homes and Gardens. Inside old books and magazines and from the land of community cookbooks I turn the pages and find scraps of paper, signatures, arts and cookies by Alfred, Elsa, Blanche, Clara, Sara, Louise, Margaret, Walter, Mary, Muriel and Ruth.

And I follow the history and tradition of long time favorites animal cookies originated from countries like England, Holland and Germany and America. I chose the following holiday cookie sites below for bird lovers. You'll find beautiful shapes like doves, robins and partridges for this Christmas season. The cookies are delicious and decorative and make great gifts for anyone who loves to bake. Shortbread and traditional sugar cookies use the same cookie dough below for your very own holiday shapes.

Enjoy the cookies and try a wonderful Swedish tray to display  them!



The Christmas Swedish tray can display the Tree, the Scottie, the Gingerbread Man, the Bell and the Candy Cane. And the flavors can come from anywhere.
France, Holland, Italy, Spain or Japan. From Grandma's Secret Recipe to Pecan Divinities to Hershey's Kisses, old-fashion or new, we love cookies, not just for their food, but for their energy! They give us gatherings of family and friends, childhood memories and a wonderland called Christmas. They give us love and traditions.

Best websites for meatball recipes

The perennial favorite -the meatball, never disappoints. It is luscious and comforting. It excites the most mundane eater, satisfies the foodie and challenges the gourmet. Many of the young and inexperienced stop just long enough inside their Nana's kitchens to learn the art of mixing the meat, spinning the balls and simmering the gravy. Amidst Middle Eastern Indians, Swedes and Italians are some of the oldest recipes. While many old meatball recipes have been lost, others have been rescued, borrowed, restored and memorialized. From word of mouth, from books and magazines, from articles and morsels of paper, from hidden jars and diaries to today’s Internet, the meatball recipe is an extravaganza - party appetizer, wedding hors d'oeuvre, cocktail food, street food, festival food, Sunday dinner, heavenly hoagie, classic sub, stew dish and soup. Serve it traditional old-world style or spanking new from a smorgasbord of lavish, rich, delicious recipes found at these helpful sites.
