Christmas Cookies


I know, I know, who needs another sugar cookie recipe...but you are going to get one. This is a great recipe but you MUST CHILL the dough before you roll it out. I iced these mitten cookies with royal icing with a little butter cream on the cuff. I like the look of royal icing but the taste of butter cream. This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek today.




Needed:




6 cups all purpose flour
1 t baking powder
1 t salt
2 cups butter- softened
3 1/2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 1/2 t vanilla




In your Kitchen Aid mix together your butter, salt, and sugar until fluffy. Now add your eggs one at a time and stir well. Now add your flour in 1 1/2 cup intervals with your salt, and baking powder. Stir well. Flatten your dough and wrap with plastic wrap. Place in fridge for a couple of hours before rolling out. Roll out and cut into desired shapes. Bake at 350' for 12 minutes. Ice with desired icing and enjoy!
