Mom’s Deathbed Cookie Recipe!
My parents are not techy. My dad only does email. My mom doesn’t do email and just learned to text. I’ve given them iPads and iPhones. I’ve tutored them on Facebook, begging them to click on it to see what I’m up to. My mom’s an avid reader. I’ve shown her how to order books. She says she’ll try to order later which never comes. My dad loves the Wall Street Journal. No interest on trying digital.
I give them a pass because I’m an only child who doesn’t have siblings to break them in, they’re 75 years old and have been married for 57 years. They’re set in their ways. So when one of them does something techy, it’s a big day. Yesterday was huge! My mom texted me about the cookies she made. She said they were good but very very messy so she was having second thoughts about them. She followed that up with:
Well dad called it a deathbed cookie. if you still want it it’s only got a few ingredients so I could give it to you
Since my dad is the real Founder of DeathbedFood® and knows it when he tastes it, I demanded she text the recipe to me. So, here it is – a Mexican Wedding Cookie that’s a Deathbed cookie from my mom (certified by my dad) for you:
- Two sticks of butter & 1/2 cup powdered sugar – cream together; add 2 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1 cup of chopped nuts.
- Mix together, role in small balls, place on a cookie sheet, bake 325 degrees for 40 minutes.
Last, roll in powdered sugar while warm.
