How to make it

  • Directions for Cookies:
  • Beat butter and shortening thoroughly with an electric mixer.
  • Add sugar, baking powder, the pinch of salt and mix until well combined.
  • Beat in egg and vanilla then as much flour as you can with the electric mixer; it will get too thick to finish mixing with the electric mixer. You'll have to finish it by hand.
  • Stir in the remaining flour.
  • Cover and chill for at least 1 hour.
  • Split the dough in 1/2 and roll one half at a time. Cut out with cookie cutters.
  • Keep the piece you aren't using in the fridge.
  • Bake at 325° F on ungreased cookie sheets for about 7 to 8 minutes, until edges are firm and bottoms are lightly browned (don't over cook).
  • Directions for Icing
  • In a small bowl, stir together the confectioners' sugar and milk until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients and mix until smooth.
  • Divide into separate bowls, and add food colorings to desired intensity. Spread the icing on the cookies with butter knives.
