Fruit Puffs

Happy Wednesday, folks! With the all the hustle and bustle of Thanksgiving + December, we took a mini-break on the Recipe Release portion of the blog... but we're back at it today! Hooray!

November brought a month of pies + assorted goodies, whereas this month I'm sharing with you the joy of COOKIES! Comin' in hot to introduce the Christmas lineup is... Fruit Puffs.

I was gifted this squeal-worthy book of recipes for my birthday! How perfect, right?

I couldn't wait to jump in and share them with you, and that's when I decided that I would cook through the book with you all here on the blog. Let's do it!

Getting started:

(NOT PICTURED: ONE EGG)

1. Sift flour, salt, and baking powder. Cut in shortening, until it resembles cornmeal.

2. Add beaten egg + water.

3. Knead for about 1/2 minute. Turn out onto floured board and roll to thickness of 1/2-inch.
