Cathedral Window Cookies

This recipe was passed down to me from my mom. As well as beining one of my favorite childhood recipes that we would make every Christmas for family, friends and our teachers when we were in school! Now I make them for my children, friends and family! I remember certain details from those times, such as the giant green plastic bowl I would mix the chocolate and marshmellows in. Or the look of the kitchen covered in chocolate, flour, powdered sugar and huge smiles as we would look at the beautiful cookie covered plates! Now, keep in mind there were about 4 kids and my poor mom supervising us all in one small kitchen!!! Wonderful fun times and the munchies were always well worth it!

So now that you are impatient to see what I'm talking about let us proceed!

Cathedral Window Cookies
1/2 Stick real butter
12 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
-Melt these together in 1 quart pitcher in the microwave for 4-5 minutes, stirring once after 2 minutes.

2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
-beat together in a separate bowl, then add to the pitcher of chocolate.

10.5 oz colored mini marshmellows
3/4 cup chopped nuts
-put these in a large mixing bowl and pour in chocolate mixture. Stir well.

Confectioner Sugar
Plastic Wrap

You will be making two rolls of Cookies

Lay down two long pieces of foil. (about 15 inches long)
Then Lay a piece of plastic wrap on top of the foil the same length.
Sprinkle Confectioner's sugar evenly all over the wrap.
split mixture in half.
Place half on the wrap.
Using the plastic wrap form a roll about 1.5-2 inches round.
Close the wrap and then seal the foil around the roll and refrigerate or freeze.
After the roll is completely cold and more solid unwrap and slice into 1/4-1/2 inch slices.
These cookies freeze well and keep well.
Always nice to keep some in the freezer during the holidays for a quick easy treat!
