Team IPT Favorite Holiday Recipes!

This is a special posting for December. With the holidays quickly approaching we wanted to share two of our favorite holiday recipes with you to get you in the spirit! Holiday butter ball cookies and holiday latkes!

Holiday Butter Ball Cookies


1 cup butter

4 tablespoons powdered sugar

1 tsp vanilla

2  1/4 cups sifted flour

1 cup chopped nuts (pick your favorite!)

Directions: Cream butter, add sugar and continue to beat until light. Add vanilla, sifted flour and mix well. Fold in chopped nuts. Shape into balls on an un-greased cookie sheet. Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes. Roll in confectioner’s sugar while hot!


Holiday Latkes


2-3 peeled medium potatoes

1 large egg

1/4 cup chopped onion

1 tsp of salt, flour and cooking oil

2 medium size frying pans

Directions: Grate potatoes, squeeze out the starchy liquid. Mix in the whisked egg, chopped onion, 1 tsp of sale and 1 tsp of flour. Add enough canola/vegetable oil to fill entire bottom of the pan and then some. When oil is pipping hot, take one large tablespoon of mixture and place into the pan and smooth it out to become somewhat rounded (like a pancake!). Leave for two minutes or until golden brown on the bottom and flip to the other side. Place latkes on thick paper towel to cool and dab off extra oil. Serve with a side of applesauce or sour cream and enjoy!
