Icebox Cookies Recipes

This one is pretty plain and simple. You can go from here and add all kinds of variety to it. I usually add candied cherries (red and green for Christmas) and nuts.


1 c. butter
2 c. brown sugar, packed
2 eggs, unbeaten
1 tsp. vanilla
3 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 c. chopped nuts

Mix all ingredients together. Roll into 1 1/2 inch rolls with waxed paper. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Cut into 1/4-1/2 inch slices. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes. Dough can be prepared in advance and frozen until needed.

This one sounds good too.


1 c. shortening
1 c. brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. salt
3 c. quick oats
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. soda

Mix shortening, sugars, vanilla, and eggs. Sift flour, salt, and soda; add along with oats to mixture. Form into long rolls and wrap in waxed paper. Chill; cut in slices and bake 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
