Spritz Cookies, Visitors, Followers and Frigid Temps!!
We made SPRITZ COOKIES the other day. I always think they are so much fun to make.
It took me awhile a few years back to finally find a Spritz recipe that I thought tasted really good. I will now share that recipe with you.
FARMCHICK'S SPRITZ COOKIES
1 cup butter
3/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon real vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3 cups flour
Cream butter and sugar together. Add egg, vanilla and almond extracts. Add remaining ingredients. Place in cookie press and form desired shapes. Bake at 375 degrees until desired color is achieved!!!
The main reason why I blog is because I have had SO much FUN meeting new people and making new friends. I would love for you who come to my blog to always leave me a comment so that I can return the visit. There are so many wonderful people out there and I want to get to know them! I love visiting your blogs...but you have to let me know where to find you. My husband says that I am addicted to reading blogs....and he is RIGHT!
So, now you are wondering.....Why on earth is she telling me this. Well here is the reason why:
Some of you may have noticed that at the bottom of my blog I have several counters....I have the live feedjit, a daily counter and a counter that has my total visitors since August 2008. A lot of days my daily counter is surprisingly high..I am astonished sometimes of just how many people are on my blog in a day. I copied my counter the other night to show you how many people had been on that day. Here is is:
So 435 people had stopped in to visit that day but at the time that I took the picture only 30 people had left comments!! I would love to see more people leaving me comments so that I can get back to your blog and leave a comment. It just makes it so much more fun to read every one's comments...I look forward to it daily.
I also invite you to follow my blog. All you have to do is go to my right sidebar and click FOLLOW THIS BLOG. Pretty please!! Thanks to those who already follow me--you're the best!
So, I thank you for stopping in and visiting our farm. It is very cold here. We just had a blizzard on Saturday and Sunday and now we are having to endure the frigid temps. Yesterday morning I took a picture of my computer screen...this is what it said:
Now in case you can't read it because it is rather blurry...it says -22 yes that is the actual temp and in smaller writing it says FEEL LIKE - 48!!! YUP--that's right the windchill is FORTY EIGHT BELOW ZERO!!! BBRRRRrrrrrrr.....that is miserably cold...and that makes it NO FUN to be outside in the lovely snow!!! IT is supposed to warm up to zero which seems like we are living in the banana belt after these temps!!!>
I hope you all have a happy and warm day!!! Make some Spritz cookies and enjoy them with your family as you cuddle around the fire. Thanks for stopping by and please leave me a comment and sign up to follow my blog if you have not already done so! See you soon!
