Grandma’s Christmas Jubilee Jumbles

You just can’t beat Grandma’s cookies, right?  These Jubilee Jumbles are the Christmas cookies of my childhood.  They are light, and cake-like, and the red and green icing on top is just divine.  If you are a chocolate chip cookie fan, you are sure to love these delicious and festive treats.  (Just ask my Grandpa, who is known to sneak “just one more” with the best of us.) 

Jubilee Jumbles

1/2 c Crisco
1 c Brown Sugar
1/2 c Sugar
2 Eggs
1 c Evaporated Milk
1 tsp Vanilla
2 3/4 c Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp. Salt
6 oz Chocolate Chip

In a large bowl, mix first four ingredients.  Stir in milk and vanilla.  In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt.  Slowly add dry ingredients to wet.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Chill dough in the refrigerator for at least an hour.  Heat oven to 375 degrees.  Drop by rounded tsp. fulls onto a greased cookie sheet for 10 minutes.  (Cookies will rise like small cakes rather than flat cookies.)


2 Tbs Butter
2 c Powdered Sugar
1/4 c Evaporated Milk

Heat butter in a sauce pan until brown*, stirring constantly.  Beat in powdered sugar and evaporated milk.  Make sure enough powdered sugar is added that icing is spreadable, but not runny.  If desired, color with a few drops of food coloring.  Spread on while cookies are still warm.  (Optional:  Place a walnut on top.)

*Heating the butter until brown gives a slight butterscotch flavor.

Makes approximately 3 dozen cookies.
