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.
