Categories: Cookies / Desserts


1  cup  butter
2  cups  sugar
3    eggs
2  teaspoons  vanilla
1/2  cup  port wine, or cream sherry
5  cups  flour, (5 to 5 1/2)

1  pound  powdered sugar
1  tablespoon  milk, (1 to 2)
2  teaspoons  vanilla
1/8  teaspoon  salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream butter and sugar together. Beat in eggs, vanilla and wine. Stir in flour, one cup at a time. Dough will be stiff. Roll out dough, on well-floured pastry sheet, to a 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutter. Bake on greased cookie sheet for 10 minutes. Make icing by combining above ingredients. (Should be an almost runny consistency). Frost cookies. These cookies will keep for up to one year in an airtight container.
