Christmas Cutout Cookies (marge Clark)
This seems a slightly less
Fragile dough than some I
And will roll out very thin,
If you wish.
1/2 c butter, softened 3/4 c sugar 1 1/2 tsp vanilla 1 egg 1 1/2 c
flour 1 tsp baking powder Dash salt
Glaze paint: Powdered sugar Milk Vanilla
Cream butter well. Add sugar and cream. Beat in vanilla and egg
until smooth. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to batter
and beat just until smooth. Wrap in wax paper and CHILL VERY WELL
Bake cutouts at 375 degrees for 6-8 mins, til barely golden.
Mix a very thin glaze by combining powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla.
"Paint" the cooled cookies and decorate while glaze is still wet with
sprinkles, colored sugar, chopped nuts, cherries, etc.
