A Little Bit About The Recipe

I got this recipe originally from In Katrina's Kitchen. I edited the recipe a little bit to my taste.

When I made this recipe I hand mixed everything and it turned out perfectly. It yields about 40 to 60 cookies depending on the cookie cutter you use and how thick you roll the dough. You do not have to chill this dough at all, I recommend that you don't.

Though I included an icing recipe in this Hub, the cookies taste just fine without them.

Hope you enjoy making them as much as I did!

How To Create These Sweets

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a bowl whisk the flour and baking powder, set aside for the time being.
  3. Melt the butter in a large bowl, add sugar. Mix together until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.
  4. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture. You may want to knead the dough with you hands, it's easier. (If the dough is too dry add a little bit of water.)
  5. Prepare the surface and rolling pin for rolling out the dough by dusting it with flour. Work with small amounts of dough at a time to make things a little easier. Roll the dough out to be .25 inches thick.
  6. You can dust the cookie cutters with flour or powdered sugar. Once you have your cookies cut out, pop them into the oven for 6-8 minutes. You want them to be a light golden color.
  7. Move the cookies after a minute or two to a cooling rack. Be sure the cookies are completely cool before you start frosting.

Colored Frosting

For Frosting

You don't have to frost these cookies, but I did. The recipe is super simple.

1 cup powdered sugar

1 tablespoon milk

Food coloring

Mix this together. You can make it thicker by adding more powdered sugar (I recommend this to make frosting the cookies easier.)

Side Notes

To make the cookie on the top of the page I put red icing all over the cookie and quickly made a white line across the middle. I used a toothpick to create the bumps in the icing. I used toothpicks to decorate these cookies because they were so small and I made the icing too thin. You can always use a different icing.

I also used the freezer to help set the icing.

These cookies are great for having a baking party. Simply prepare the dough ahead of time, have guests cut out some shapes, and get to decorating after they cool (they don't take very long to cool.) May be a good idea for a child's party.

Also if you have to chill the dough, just take out the dough 10 to 20 minutes before rolling it out.
