Cookies for Quilters

I had quite a baking adventure last weekend. I went searching online for a new cookie recipe, hoping to find something quilter-appropriate since the point was to make gift boxes for a couple of my coworkers. I found instructions for Checkerboard Cookies on the Americas Test Kitchen website.

I’d never made anything like them before, but decided to get even fancier and make Nine-Patch Cookies.

Making the vanilla and chocolate doughs went well, and slicing the dough logs up and realigning them was totally fun…no seam allowances to worry about with cookies! Here’s my cookie log, being sliced for baking:

Next, on to the parchment-paper-covered cookie sheet:

Here they are, fresh from the oven. Not bad for my first attempt!

So here’s my question for you: What holiday cookies are you baking up this year? Happy snacking, and a Merry Christmas to all.

    I will make “Mrs. Minge’s Cookies (named after our friends’ Mom when we were all at Stewart AFB in the Air Force who taught us to make them) with my son, they’re also called Boiled Cookies. Made with cocoa, oatmeal, peanut butter, coconut, so rich & yummy. Favorite cookie of the US Army troops at PRT Ganze, Afghanistan for Christmas 2009. And I Love your Nine Patch Cookies!
