Bonnes Amies Sugar Cookie Recipe🏆

Bonnes Amies Sugar Cookie Recipe...Our Madeline won first place at the fair with this cookie recipe.
2-1/4 cups sugar
1 cup real butter (softened)
3 eggs
3 T. milk
1-1/2 tsp. Best Mexican Vanilla or Paste (Pick Up Your Bottle At Bonnes Amies...the paste leaves tiny flecks of vanilla bean in your dough which enhances the flavor of the cookie)
4-7/8 cups flour
3-3/4 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt

Mix sugar, butter, eggs, milk & Mexican Vanilla. Mix dry ingredients together and add to sugar mixture. Roll out and cut into shapes. Bake on greased cookie sheet at 400˚ for 5-8 min.
(I like to chill my dough first if using cookie cutters to keep the shape better)

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup shortening
1 tsp. Mexican Vanilla
1/8 tsp. salt
4 cups powdered sugar

Add a few tsp. milk if needed for consistency. Beat until smooth. Yum!
Just one tablespoon of Mexican Vanilla Bean Paste from Blue Cattle Truck provides your recipes with the flavor comparable to a whole vanilla bean. If your recipe calls for a teaspoon of vanilla, use a teaspoon of paste instead. This paste not only gives your recipes a rich and concentrated vanilla flavor, but it has the vanilla "caviar" seeds that add to the appearance and aroma of your dishes. With the thick consistency, you can use this paste to add more delicious Mexican vanilla flavor to batter and sauces without thinning them out.

A huge hit last Christmas our Cranberry Spiced Snack Mix made with Hot Pepper Cranberry Jelly was all the rave with customers. Be sure to pick up a jar and whip up a batch. This is also wonderful over cream cheese served with crackers. Our traditional red pepper jelly has also arrived.

Preheat oven to 275°F.
In a small saucepan, melt the butter and Hot Pepper Cranberry Jelly over medium heat until the butter has melted and has combined with the jam. Whisk in the chili powder and garlic salt and remove from heat.
In a large bowl, combine the cereals, pretzels, cranberries and nuts. Pour the jam and butter combination over the mix and toss until it is all coated.
Spread the mix across two parchment paper lined baking sheets. Place in the oven and bake for 50-60 minutes, tossing every 10-15 minutes.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle lightly with ground cinnamon. The mixture will crisp as it cools. Once cool, toss and serve or store in an air tight container.

½ cup (1 stick) salted butter
¼ cup Hot Pepper Cranberry Jelly (Pick up at Bonnes Amies Kitchen)
1 teaspoon chili powder (more if you like spice)
1 teaspoon garlic salt
2 cups wheat chex cereal
3 cups rice chex cereal
