      Re: Wedding cookies

      I no longer have the recipe, but for my grandma's 50th anniversary, my mom and I made a bunch of the little buttery round cookies and put a "squirt" of icing on top, they actually went faster than the cake did. I wish I still had the recipe we used.

          I would make different variations of the cake balls and decorate them pretty. Those are always a winner.

            CAKE BALLS

            • 1 (18.25 ounce) package chocolate cake mix (I used Duncan Hines)
            • 1 (16 ounce) container prepared chocolate frosting ( I used Duncan Hines..not whipped)
            • 1 (16 ounce) bar chocolate flavored confectioners coating or almond bark (many people said more than 16oz is needed)

            1. Prepare the cake mix according to package directions using any of the recommended pan sizes. When cake is done, crumble while warm into a large bowl (into tiny crumbs) and stir in the frosting until well blended.
            2. Melt chocolate coating in a glass bowl in the microwave, or in a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water,(or a double boiler) stirring occasionally until smooth.
            3. Use a melon ball or small scoop to form balls of the chocolate cake mixture. Place on a cookie sheet in the freezer for several minutes to make dipping easier. Dip the balls in chocolate using a toothpick or fork to hold them. Place on waxed paper to set.

            NOTE: This recipe is very versatile and heavily addictive. You can mix and match cake and icing flavors as well as the chocolate coatings. If you want to go the extra mile, cake balls can be rolled in nuts, sprinkles, coconut, etc. or double dipped in white and dark chocolates. Chocolate confectioners' coating is also called Almond Bark in some stores. If the balls are not frozen/cold, your finished product will not have a smooth coating. It will be lumpy and full of crumbs. These are easy enough that someone who doesn't cook can make them without difficulty. Many people commented that they taste like donut holes, only better.

            Variations/flavors:

            • White cake mix and mint chocolate chip icing - Dipped in chocolate confectioners coating.
            • French vanilla cake with white chocolate almond icing. – Dipped in chocolate confectioners coating.
            • Red velvet with cream cheese icing and vanilla confectioners coating.
            • Red velvet with cream cheese icing dipped into milk chocolate coating.
            • Chocolate cake, milk chocolate icing, dipped into chocolate bark.
            • Lemon cake with lemon frosting and dip them in whit chocolate.
            • Lemon cake mixed in white chocolate chips and lemon frosting, dipped in white chocolate.
            • Spice cake with cream cheese frosting and coated them with white chocolate coating.
            • Cherry chip cake mix and cream cheese frosting dipped in white chocolate.
            • Fudge cake, mixed in peppermint chips and fudge frosting. Dip in dark chocolate.
            • Chocolate fudge cake mix and coconut pecan frosting dipped into chocolate.
            • Chocolate cake, butter cream icing, and dark chocolate coating.
            • Chocolate cake/chocolate icing and dipped into raspberry/chocolate chips are melted with a bit of oil.
            • German chocolate cake mix with coconut pecan frosting & dipped in melted semi sweet chocolate chips.
            • Strawberry with vanilla frosting, dipped in chocolate.
            • Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, dipped in white almond bark.
            • Chocolate cake, chocolate icing and Andes candy bits. If you like Girl Scout Thin Mints you will love these.

                    Re: Wedding cookies

                    All of these freeze well. The Chocolate Crinkles recipe makes a ton. The other recipes make an average amount.

                    Swedish Creme Wafers

                    1 cup butter, softened
                    1/3 cup whipping cream
                    2 cups flour
                    sugar for sprinkling

                    Icing:

                    1/4 cup butter, softened
                    3/4 cup confectioner's sugar
                    1 tsp vanilla

                    Mix butter, cream and flour. Chill for 1 hour. Preheat oven to 375 F. Divide dough into thirds. Roll out a section of dough 1/8 inch thick. Keep rest of dough refrigerated. Cut into 1 1/2 inch rounds with cookie cutter. Place rounds on ungreased cookie sheet. Sprinkle with sugar. Prick a few times with a fork. Bake 7-9 minutes.

                    Mix together icing ingredients. When cookies are cool, ice the bottom of one cookie then put another cookie on top to make a sandwich.

                    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

                    Sweetheart Cookies

                    3/4 cup butter, softened
                    1/2 cup sugar
                    1 egg yolk
                    1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
                    2 tablespoons raspberry or strawberry preserves
                    powdered sugar

                    In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add egg yolk; mix well. Stir in flour by hand. On a lightly floured surface gently knead dough for 2-3 minutes or until thorougly combined.

                    Roll into 1 inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheets. Using the end of a wooden spoon handle, make an indentation in the center of each cookie. Fill with 1/4 teaspoon preserves.

                    Bake at 350 F for 13-15 minutes or until edges start to brown. Remove to a wire rack to cool. Dust with powdered sugar (optional).

                    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

                    Sour Cream Twists

                    1 stick (1/2 cup) butter or margarine at room temperature
                    1/2 cup granulated sugar
                    1/4 cup sour cream
                    1/8 tsp salt
                    1/2 tsp almond extract
                    1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

                    For decoration: 1/2 cup colored sugar

                    In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar with electric mixer until pale and fluffy. Beat in sour cream, salt and almond extract until blended. With mixer on low speed, gradually beat in flour just until blended. Chill dough two hours or until firm enough to handle.

                    Heat oven to 375 F. Lightly grease cookie sheets.

                    Divide dough in half. Divide each half into 8 equal pieces. On a lightly floured surface, roll each piece into 16 inch long ropes. Cut each rope in 4 pieces. Bring ends of each piece together, overlapping them slightly to form a ring. Place on cookie sheets and sprinkle with colored sugar.

                    Bake 10 to 12 minutes until bottoms are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. Store in an airtight container up to 3 weeks or freeze.

                    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

                    Chocolate Crinkles

                    2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
                    2 teaspoons baking powder
                    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
                    1/2 cup butter or margarine at room temp
                    1 3/4 cup granulated sugar
                    3 large eggs
                    1 teaspoon vanilla
                    4 squares (1 ounce each) unsweetened chocolate, melted
                    1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar

                    Mix flour, baking powder and cinnamon.

                    Beat butter and granulated sugar in a large bowl with electric mixer until fluffy. Beat in eggs until mixture is pale. Beat in vanilla and chocolate until blended. With mixer on low speed, gradually beat in flour mixture just until blended. Refrigerate dough about 1 hour or until firm enough to handle.

                    Heat oven to 350. Lightly grease cookie sheets.

                    Shape heaping teaspoonfuls of dough into 1 inch balls. Roll in confectioner’s sugar. Place 1 ˝ inches apart on prepared cookie sheets.

                    Bake about 12 minutes until tops are puffed and cracked. Do not overbake. Cookies are soft when hot but firm and chewy when cool. Remove to wire rack to cool. Store in airtight container for up to 2 weeks or freeze.

                          By the way the cake balls make about 100 balls for each cake mix.

                            Classic wedding cookies

                            Crescent Cookies

                            Cream together;
                            ˝ lb. butter
                            5 tablespoons sugar
                            2 teaspoons vanilla extract
                            1 tablespoon water

                            Sift together;
                            2 cups flour
                            ˝ teaspoon salt

                            Add dry mix to butter slowly, then add 2 cups ground pecans.

                            Take about a ball of dough and roll it between your palms to make a log about the size of your pinkie finger. Bend into a crescent shape and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350°F for 25 minutes. Roll in powdered sugar while still warm. These will keep for weeks in a tightly sealed container and actually improve with age.

                              3 cups flour
                              1/4 teaspoon salt
                              1 1/2 cups cold water
                              crisco
                              wax paper
                              Icing
                              40 wooden dial rods/6 inch long each.

                              2 cups milk
                              4 heaping tabl. flour

                              2 teaspoons vanilla

                              Beat flour, salt and water till soft and pliable. Divide dough into 3 parts then take the first dough and roll out of floured cloth to 1/4 inch thick. Spread with 1/3 cup crisco and fold over about 6 times..to make a neat square. Cover with wax paper and refrige it. Do this three times total. After 1/2 hour in fridge take out and roll out again. Spread with another 1/3 cup crisco. do this with the other two doughs. Wrap well and put back in fridge forianother 1/2 hour. Do this a total of 3 times. After the third time, refrige overnite, make sure they are coved well with wax paper. Next day: Take one dough out. Let it sit a bit to soften some. Flour your cloth and rolling pin. Roll dough about almost size of cloth. Cut dough, using a ruler about 1 inch wide and 7 inches long. Wind dough around dile, slightly overlapping. Put on ungreaed cookie sheet. Bake at 400o for 16-20 minutes. When slightly cool, slip off the dile. Fill with filling when cool. I make the dough one day. Bake the second day and fill the 3rd..just so much easier. For the filling: Put milk and flour in saucepan. Cook till thick, stirring constantly to make sure it does not get lumpy. Cool. In mixer put, crisco, sugar and vanilla, cream this. Add the cooled white sauce and beat on high till creamy and thick. Fill the lady locks. I fill with a large pastry bag and a #12 tip.
