CHRISTMAS BUTTER COOKIES

Can you imagine Christmas without cookies? No, right? There is something to it- is it the baking or being together with your loved ones or just this wonderful Christmassy smell. Who knows? 🤷‍♀️ Anyway, back to cookies! So if you’re the one that keeps the traditions alive in your family, we suggest to bookmark this recipe. It has everything- tradition, simplicity and no fuss in the kitchen. Now let’s get baking! 🍪

 

THE RECIPE

 Ingredients

1 c. butter (no substitutions)

1/2 c. sugar

1 large egg

1 tbsp. vanilla extract

3 c. all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp. baking powder

Powdered Sugar

 

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In large bowl, with mixer at low speed, beat butter and sugar until blended. Increase speed to high, beat until light and creamy. At low speed, beat in egg and vanilla. Beat in flour and baking powder just until blended.

Divide dough into 4 equal pieces. Wrap each piece with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm enough to roll, about 1 hour.

On lightly floured surface, with floured rolling pin, roll 1 piece of dough 1/8 inch thick. With floured 2- to 3-inch assorted cookie cutters, cut dough into as many cookies as possible, wrap and refrigerate trimmings. Place cookies, 1 inch apart, on large ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake cookies 10 to 12 minutes, until lightly browned. Transfer cookies to wire rack to cool. If you like, brush colored sugar remaining on cookie sheets onto piece of waxed paper to use again. Repeat with remaining dough and trimmings.

When cookies are cool, sprinkle powdered sugar as desired. Store cookies in tightly covered container up to 2 weeks.
