Default Yule log cookies


1/2 cup Brown sugar, firmly packed

3 Tablespoons Butter or margarine, softened

1 Egg

1 cup All-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon Baking powder

1/2 teaspoon Ground cardamom

1/4 teaspoon Baking soda

1/4 teaspoon Ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon Ground cloves

1/4 teaspoon Ground allspice

1/4 teaspoon Ground nutmeg

Red and green decorator icing (can be bought at specialty shops or grocery store baking sections)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a medium bowl, beat the brown sugar and butter or margarine together until blended. Add the egg; beat until well blended.

In a separate bowl mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda and spices together mix well.

Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients using a large spoon or a electric hand mixer until well blended.

Divide the dough in half. On a lightly floured surface, roll each half of dough with your hands to make two 10 1/2-inch logs; flatten slightly to 1 1/4 inches in diameter. With a spatula, place the logs 2 to 3 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Dip a non-serrated knife in water; score each log diagonally at 3/4-inch intervals. Bake for 11 to 13 minutes, or until set and no longer moist. Cool for 1 minute. Remove from the cookie sheet; place on a wire rack. Cool for 5 minutes. With a serrated knife, cut the logs at the scored lines.

Cool completely. Decorate each cookie with decorator icing to resemble a holly leaf and berries.

and let the beautiful stuff out. - Ray Bradbury
