Ingredients Jump to Instructions ↓

  1. 1/2 c Butter

  2. 1 c Granulated sugar

  3. 2 x Large eggs

  4. 1 tb Milk

  5. 1/4 C FLOUR LATER--

  6. 2 1/2 c All-purpose flour,save

  7. 2 ts Baking powder

  8. 1/4 ts Salt

  9. 1/2 ts Vanilla

  10. 1/2 ts Almond

  11. 1-2 hours. Heat oven to

  12. 300 degrees. Grease cookie sheet (only ONCE). No need to grease it each time. Add ingredients together, saving out the

  13. 1/4 cup of flour. Knead the

  14. 1/4 cup flour into the dough now, chill. Roll out, using flour on surface, cutters and rolling pin, generously. Try to get more flour on tiny places. This is a great recipe for the creased cookie cutters, because it is delicious and dough does not lose its shape. For this type of cutter, roll to about 1/4" thickness, so dough is just thick enough to leave the cutter imprints. Ordinarily, roll dough to

  15. 1/4" thickness for best results. Any cookie will lose detail and shape when it is too thick. This cookie is good iced with thin royal icing. Cookie stays soft, but is not terribly fragile.
