Decorated Christmas Cookies

I don’t know what to call these — roll cookies, or cut outs — they’re the kind we decorate with icing and sprinkles and whatever else tickles our fancy.

The recipe is simple:

1. Cream together 1 cup butter and 1 1/2 cups sugar.

2. Crack two eggs and add 2 teaspoons vanilla.

3. Then add eggs and vanilla to the butter/sugar.

4. And cream together.

5. Mix together 4 cups flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 2 teaspoons baking powder.

6. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.

7. The dough should look like this . . .If mixture is very soft you may need to refrigerate for an hour.

8. Roll out dough 1/8 inch thick.

9. Place of well greased cookie sheets, or use parchment paper or silpats.

10. Bake at 350 for 8 – 10 minutes. ┬áThese cookies hold their shape well and get very crisp.

11. Make Royal Icing

12. Set up an icing station and . . .Decorate!
