Pistachio Pudding Cookies





each year at christmastime, my mom would make what we called "green cookies". it was tradition and everybody loved them! now, that i have gotten married and live so far from home, i plan to continue this tradition of making "green cookies" each year. it's part of christmas that i always want to continue. we had a christmas party to attend last friday night, so i thought it was the perfect opportunity to make them! the recipe is simple, and there is nothing better than good homemade frosting!

PISTACHIO PUDDING COOKIES:

1 1/2 cups of Bisquick
2 regular size boxes of instant pistachio pudding (jello brand tastes the best!)
1/2 cup of oil
2 eggs

Stir the above ingredients and form into small balls. Lightly rolls the balls in sugar and then slightly flatten on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.

VANILLA ICING:
Now according to my mom, there is no specific recipe. She always add these ingredients to taste but I will list basic measurements that you can double, triple or duplicate as many times as you'd like to get the right amount:

1/3 cup of softened butter (don't melt it, set it out ahead of time!)
2 tablespoons milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups powdered sugar




 (from watching my mom make these cookies, i took on the tip of flattening the cookies a bit with the bottom of a cup before baking)




(instead of sprinkling the cookies, it is sometimes quicker-and less messy-to pour the sprinkles in a bowl and dip the cookies!)





enjoy!!
