Tasty Christmas Cookies…………
-1-cup butter softened
-¾ cup of sugar
-1-teaspoon of clear vanilla extract
-2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
-1-1 1/2 tablespoons of milk
1-teaspoon baking powder
-¼ teaspoon of salt.
In mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar. Add egg, vanilla and milk; mix well. Combine flour baking powder and salt; add to cream mixture and mix well. You can judge it by how dry the dough feels. You do not want real dry dough.
You do not have to refrigerate but I always have better success when I put the dough in the refrigerator for about 20-minutes. I have had times when I did not have the time to refrigerate.
They will turn out fine. The next step is most important. Put a little flour on each side of dough and a little on your rolling pin, again less is better. Remember: you can always add but you cannot take away!
-Get two pieces of parchment paper.
-Put the dough in between the parchment paper and roll the dough out.
-Use cookie cutter and put on cookie sheet.
-Preheat oven to 325-350 degrees depending on your oven.
-Bake no more than 6-7 minutes.
-Let cookies cool completely, then frost.
-Below is my favorite cutout frosting recipe.
-First step is to add 3 1/2 – 4 cups of powdered sugar.
-Sift the powdered sugar if its real lumpy.
-You can also mix the powdered sugar on low for to break up the lumps.
-Add 1-cup (2-sticks) of softened butter.
-Add 2-3 teaspoons of vanilla.
-Add 2 tablespoons of whole milk
-In a large bowl beat together your butter and powdered sugar.
-Mix in your vanilla and milk, beat until smooth and creamy.
-If your going to color your frosting, mix in your choice of coloring at this time..
-When it’s the color your wanting, use a small metal off set spatula (or a butter knife) to smooth the frosting on, working from the center of the cookie, out towards the edges.
