I have about three thousand loose leaf papers with different recipes on them stuffed into my cupboards or stuck inside various cookbooks. I just want to have them all organinzed. This is my attempt to get them that way.

Thumb Print Cookies

¾ cup nuts, chopped fine
¼ cup butter
¼ cup shortening
½ tsp. vanilla
¼ cup brown sugar
1 egg yolk, save the whites
1-cup flour
¼ TBS. salt
1 recipe of butter cream frosting in Christmas colors

Sift flour and salt together.  Mix together all ingredients except chopped nuts.  Roll dough into balls the size of walnuts.  Beat egg white until frothy.  Dip balls in egg white and roll in nuts.  Bake 5 minutes at 375*.  Press thumb gently in center of each cookie.  Return to oven and bake another 8 minutes.  Drop or pipe frosting into thumbprint while cookies are warm.
