How to make it

  • For Butter Cookies

  • Cream butter with sugar. Beat until light and fluffy.
  • Add flour a lil at a time until a stiff workable dough forms.
  • Let refrigerate at about 15 minutes.
  • Roll cookies out on a clean, dry surface with a lil flour, if needed, to avoid sticking. Roll out to between 1/4-1/2 inch sheet.
  • Cut with metal cookie cutters.
  • Place on prepared baking sheet(parchment works best) or a baking stone(this is what I use)
  • Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 12-14 minutes until edges are just starting to turn golden.
  • Let cookies cool at least 15 minutes on the pan then carefully remove to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  • Ice cookies when completely cooled.
  • For Butter Cream Frosting

  • Beat butter with vanilla and careflly add powdered sugar alternating with a T at a time of cream and mix well. Continue until desired consitency is achieved. I don't do the smooth perfect iced cookies, because we like the more rustic look...it's what we remember...but, you could ice these cookies with any favorite glaze or icing, if desired.
  • Decorate as desired.
  • **this cookie dough can also be rolled into a log, chilled well, and sliced to bake rather than rolling out to ice and decorate.

    Nice light butter cookie with wonderful icing! The shape stayed nicely too if you need to worry about that. They do puff a bit but not too much. And the icing, well I licked the bowl :)
