Why I Love This Recipe

What happens if you give a mouse of cookie?...... he usually will bring a friend! Merry Ho Ho! Maria Cano

Ingredients You'll Need

3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup margarine or butter, softened
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
3 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
1 cup finely chopped nuts
Melting chocolate
Maraschino cherries
Almond slivers
Hershey's Kisses


In a large bowl combine sugar, brown sugar, butter, vanilla and eggs. Blend well. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt; blend well. Stir in nuts, divide dough into a roll 1 1/4" thick in diameter. Wrap, refrigerator at least 2 hours or until firm.

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Cut dough into 2 parts and roll into ball. Roll out ball to fit pizza boxes you paid $2.00 for at Pizza Hut. Slice with pizza slicer and place on uncreased cookies sheets. Bake for 6-7 minutes, or until light brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet and cool.

Drizzle melted chocolate that I forgot to mention on top of the recipe and decorate with mouse you made by dipping a maraschino cherry into the melted chocolate and placing a Hershey's Kiss up against it and placing that on wax paper, then adding 2 sliced almond slivers between the dipped cherry and the kiss.... then tell everyone you forgot it was cookies that you needed to make because you were distracted by the large mouse in your kitchen....and watch the fun begin!.....
