Kiss Me Cookies Recipe

Now, here's one that's been around since grandma's were invented—That great ol’ standby, Kiss Me Cookie. It's a fine recipe I'm sure to turn to when this Christmas holiday is here again because it is one that rolls out easily to make those lovely heart shapes. Fun to make kiss me sugar cookies with your friends.

The Recipe below is a never fail Kiss Me Sugar Cookie, that will melt in your mouth if ya don't over bake ‘em! Yum!!

These kiss me sugar cookies are spicy heart shaped cookies. Kiss me cookies are popular in Germany. The idea is to buy icing and write your messages onto each cookie.
Cookie Messages Like: Darling, My Treasure, Kiss me, Love You, Today Forever, Stay True to Me.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

Kiss Me Cookies Recipe Ingredients:

3/4 cup of honey
2/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 tsp. grated lemon peel
4 Tbsp. butter or margarine
(HINT: use butter, they sure taste better even if there are a few more calories. Geeze! You’re eating a cookie, not a piece of celery. Forget the diet for once!)
2 eggs (lightly beaten in a small bowl with a fork, remember, like I told you in those other recipes?)
3 -3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup almonds, ground
1 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 cup minced candied orange peel
1 egg yolk beaten with 1 Tbsp. water
Purchase decorating icing in tubes.

In a small cooking pan, combine honey, sugar, lemon peel, and butter; stir over medium heat until butter is melted. Turn off heat and let cool.
Get out a big bowl and your electric mixer, beat the eggs until foamy; stir in honey mixture.
In another bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, salt, almonds, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and orange peel; gradually add to egg mixture, blend together thoroughly.

Make a large heart shaped pattern out of heavy paper. A 7 or 8 inch size heart will work nicely. Divide cookie dough into 8 equal portions; dust with flour and shake off excess. On a lightly floured board, roll out one portion of cookie dough until just slightly larger than pattern. Transfer cookie dough to a greased baking sheet and place pattern on top; cut around pattern with a knife and remove the scraps.

Repeat with the remaining dough, spacing cookies 1/2 inch apart on cookie sheets. Combine scraps and re roll to make 1 more perfect shaped heart. Brush cookies with egg yolk mixture. Bake Kiss Me cookies in a 350 degrees oven for 12 to 17 minutes or until lightly browned.
Transfer hot kiss me cookies onto racks to finish cooling.

Decorate cookies with icing, making a decorative border around the edges. White icing and a regular tip work well for writing your special messages. Let icing dry, uncovered, until icing is firm (2 to 20 hours). Wrap each cookie snugly with plastic wrap. Tape plastic wrap together on back if needed. With a tool, make two evenly spaced holes at the top of each heart. Next, force a piece of narrow ribbon through plastic and cookie holes. Tie ribbon ends together, making loop long enough to fit over a person's head.
Store kiss me cookies airtight for up to 2 weeks.
Recipe makes 8 to 10 big kiss me cookies.

Grandma's Cookies and Tea

As I watched the sun sink low in the west, I reminisced about my grandma and how she loved the sunset. She would sit on the swing on the porch, eating one of her famous sugar cookies and sipping her cup of tea. She would watch the big, round, yellow ball kiss the horizon and softly say a prayer thanking God for another beautiful day.

However, during the day she did what she loved best. She would get out her recipe box and go through her cookie recipes to see what she thought would appeal to her loved ones. She knew that my favorite was oatmeal and raisin and my brother’s was brownies with frosting on them. My sister was partial to Grandma’s peanut butter cookies.

She would finally decide on which cookie she was going to bake that day. No matter what Grandma made they were always a hit!!

Oh how I miss my Grandma’s home baking. Grandma left her cooking sheets and cookie recipes for me, but somehow, no matter how hard I try, I can never get mine to taste the same as Grandmas! But I won’t give up because I am sure one day, my granddaughters will reminisce about their Grandma’s cookies and try to get them to taste as good as mine!

In case you haven’t heard … gourmet style cookies are to 2013 what cupcakes were for 2011! The cookie's somewhat dull, predictable reputation has undergone a complete makeover from glazed and filled to become the latest trend in the pastry scene. Artisan and “designer” cookies are popping up at local Farmer’s Markets, specialized bakeries and are even being featured on menus in restaurants, as a delightfully delicious dessert.
