Splattered Painted Cookies

Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 1
Categories: Cookies / Desserts

1  c  Room temp butter
1 1/2  c  Confectioners sugar
1    Egg
2  ts  Vanilla
2  ts  Freshly grated lemon peel
2 1/2  c  Flour
1  t  Baking powder
1/2    Cream with assorted food

Beat butter & sugar in a large bowl with mixer until fluffy. Beat in egg, vanilla & peel. With mixer on low, gradually beat in flour & powder just til blended. Shape into 4 balls. Flatten each to 1" thick round. Wrap & chill 1 hour or until firm enough to roll. Heat oven to 325. Have ungreased cookie sheets ready. On well floured surface, roll 1 piece of dough at a time (keep remainder refrigerated) to 1/8" thick. Cut in desired shapes with 2 1/4" cookie cutters. Place 1" apart on ungreased sheets. Press leftover scraps of dough together & chill. Bake cookies 9-12 minutes until very lightly browned. Remove to rack to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough. To splatter paint cookies, divide cream among small bowls. Stir a different color into each. Arrange cookies on a waxed paper covered surface. Dip a small brush in colored cream & flick over cookies or brush over tops. Let stand about 2 hours until paint is absorbed. Store airtight up to 2 weeks or freeze.
