Scripture Cookies

By Paula Weed

From “Scripture Cookies,” Friend, Mar. 2010, 13

Find each ingredient by looking up the scripture reference and filling in the blank. (Check your answers at the bottom of the page before making the cookies.)
1/2 cup “When I washed my steps with _______________” (Job 29:6). 3/4 cup “To what purpose cometh there to me … , the _______________ from a far country?” (Jeremiah 6:20). 1 “As one gathereth _______________ that are left have I gathered all the earth” (2 Nephi 20:14). 1/2 teaspoon “Spices for anointing _______________, and for the _______________ incense” (Exodus 35:8). 1 3/4 cups “And thou shalt take fine _______________, and bake twelve cakes thereof” (Leviticus 24:5). 3/4 teaspoon “A little _______________ leaveneth the whole lump” (Galatians 5:9). 1/4 teaspoon “Ye are the _______________ of the earth” (Matthew 5:13). 1 cup “Their root is _______________ up, they shall bear no _______________” (Hosea 9:16). 

  • 1. Wash your hands and ask an adult to preheat the oven to 400˚F (205˚C).

  • 2. Mix first four ingredients together.

  • 3. Mix in remaining ingredients.

  • 4. Roll dough into 1-inch (2.5-cm) balls and place on an ungreased baking sheet.

  • 5. Flatten balls with fork, first one way and then the other, making a crisscross pattern.

  • 6. Bake 8 to 10 minutes.

1/2 cup butter, 3/4 cup sugar, 1 egg, 1/2 teaspoon lemon oil or extract, 1 3/4 cups flour, 3/4 teaspoon baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 cup dried fruit (for example, cherries, cranberries, mangos, or apricots).

*The kids and I made these for our FHE treat.  A fun way to get into the scriptures--and then we were rewarded with a delicate shortbread, sugar cookie-type treat.
