Holiday Fun with Delilah Marvelle

The first time we went to RomCon we had never heard of Delilah, that soon changed and I now count her as a good friend. In fact my oldest has crush on her daughter, but shh don’t tell him I said anything. She sent us these amazing cookies that I can’t wait to try. 

I have three all time favorite Christmas movies I simply would never be able to chose from:
Elf (OMG), A Miracle on 34th Street (the 1947 edition), and the ever glorious It’s a Wonderful Life.  I cry throughout each and every one of these and HAVE to watch them all every single year at least once (though it ends up being 3-4 times each)
As far as Christmas music goes:
Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is You
Bing Crosby’s White Christmas
Eartha Kitt’s Santa Baby
Christmas Apricot Sage Cookies:
1 3/4 C all purpose flour
1/3 C sugar
1/4 C yellow cornmeal
1/2 C butter
2 TBS snipped sage, lemon thyme or Rosemary
3 TBS milk
1 egg white
1 TBS water
Fresh sage leaves
2 TBS apricot preserves
1.) In a medium mixing bowl stir together flour, sugar & cornmeal.  Using pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs and clings.  Stir in herbs.  Add milk and stire with fork to combine.  Form mixture into a ball and knead dough until smooth.  Divide dough in half.
2.) On a highly floured surface, roll half of the dough at a time to 1/8-inch thickness.  Using a 2 1/2 inch round cookies cutter, cut out dough.
3.) In a small bowl combine egg white and water.  Brush half of the cookies with the edgg white mixture.  Place a small sage leaf or two on each cookie.  Brush leaves with egg white mixture.  Sprinkle with sugar.  Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
4.) Bake in 375 degree oven for about 7 minutes or until edges are firm and bottom are lightly browned.  Transfer onto wire racks.
5.) Spread apricot preserves on the bottom of each cookie without a safe leaf.  Top preserves layer with a sage topped-leafed cookie, bottom side down.
Makes 16 sandwich cookies
