How to make it

  • In a large bowl, cream together butter, powdered sugar, flavoring and extracts.
  • Beat in the egg.
  • Add dry ingredients and blend all together well.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour.
  • Working with about 1/5 of the dough, roll out dough to ⅛” to ¼” thickness on powdered sugar dusted waxed paper (cut waxed paper to fit on a baking sheet that will fit in your freezer); cut out desired shapes.
  • Slide waxed paper onto baking sheet and place in freezer for about 10 minutes; remove pan from freezer and pull scraps of dough away from cut out shapes.
  • Place cut outs on lightly greased baking sheet.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for about 8 minutes, until edges of cookies are just barely beginning to turn a golden brown…the thinner the cookie, the quicker it will bake, so watch carefully.
  • Repeat this for all of the dough, saving the scraps from each batch until the end, then joining them all together and rolling it out for one last batch.

    AWE, you had me at the picture. I love the 3 diffrent extracts, and rolling out in powdered sugar, I never put in the freezer before taking off the wax paper, but never too old to learn a new trick. Great recipe Krum and a beauty flag.
    (I see you didn't show Maggie how to do those press out cookies)hehehe
