CRIS’s CHRISTMAS COOKIES

CRIS’s CHRISTMAS COOKIES

1 cup sugar,
1 stick of butter, let it sit out to soften,
1 egg,
1 teaspoon vanilla extract,
2 cups white flour,
1/4 teaspoon salt,
1 teaspoon baking powder,
mix all ingredients together in
large mixing bowl,
put in refrigerator 2 hours to chill.

Put flour on clean counter
and use roller to roll out the dough.

Use cookie cutters to make the
shapes, or if you don’t have any,
then use a very dull knife to
cut shapes, and use a spatula
to pick the shapes up and put them
on a cookie sheet,
after you butter
the cookie sheet first.

Bake at 350 degrees almost
10 minutes,
but check before then
to see if there is a very slight
brownish crispt,
and they are done.

Now, make the frosting
in a separate mixing bowl,
put 1 softened stick of butter
and 1 cup of confectioners sugar,
and 1/8 cup whole milk.
Mix them completely.

Then divide the frosting into
5 containers, and add a different
color of food coloring to each one,
just a couple of drips of red,
green, yellow, blue.
Also, try mixing colors.

After the cookies are out of the
oven, set them aside to cool off.

When they are completely cool,
you can add the colors of frosting.

Be creative.
Use the smallest spoon
you have to spread the frosting
on in shapes.
Add walnuts, chopped cranberry,
pecans.
