How funny! Just this afternoon I had an earworm of the line, "Now bring us a figgy pudding, now bring us a figgy pudding, now bring us a figgy pudding, etc., etc.," and wondering what on earth was a figgy pudding. Now I can find out!  :D

Some of the cookies my mom and I would bake for Christmas.





1/2 cup butter 
1/2 cup shortening 
1 cup sifted confectioners' sugar 
1 egg 
1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
2 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour 
1 teaspoon salt 
1/2 teaspoon red food coloring


1  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
2  Mix well the shortening and butter, sugar, egg, almond and vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix flour and salt and add to shortening mixture. Divide dough in half.
3  Blend red food coloring into one half. Roll 1 teaspoon of the red dough and 1 teaspoon of the white dough on lightly floured board into 4 inch strips. Place strips side by side and press lightly together and twist like a rope. Curve top of rope down to look like the handle of a candy cane.
4  Bake 9 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove while still warm. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup crushed peppermint stick candy and 1/2 cup sugar (optional).

1/2 cup butter 
4 cups miniature marshmallows 
1 teaspoon green food coloring 
1/2 teaspoon almond extract 
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 
4 cups cornflakes cereal
red hots/red M&Ms

 
1  Microwave marshmallows and butter on High for 2 minutes. Stir, then microwave on High for 2 minutes more. Stir. (This can be done in a double boiler if one doesn't have a microwave.)
2  Add and mix quickly the coloring, extracts, then cornflakes. Drop by spoonfuls in clumps on greased wax paper and decorate with 3 red hots/red M&Ms each.
3  Once cool, transfer to lightly greased serving/storage tray with lightly greased fingers.
