Catholic Recipe: Jesse Tree Cookies
These cookies would make a wonderful dessert on Sundays during Advent.
Blend butter, sugar, egg, extract, salt. Add flour, mix thoroughly. Stir in oats. Chill dough. Roll out to 1/8 thickness. Cut, bake at 350 degrees, 8 to 10 minutes. Unless by the time you read this, some enterprising firm has already put out a line of Jesse Tree cutters, you will have to make your own out of cardboard or tin or freehand knife.Recipe Source: Holy Housewifery Cookbook by Ethel Marbach, Abbey Press, Saint Meinrad, Indiana, 1968
