    BrandiRose's Note:

    This old fashioned cookie comes from the recipe box of my great grandma. They get their name from the fact that they are rectangular and colorful, resembling a magic carpet. She always made them with brightly colored icing as the filling but thay are just as good with jam (or a little of both!). I have also filled them with Nutella before and they turned out fantastic.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375°F Mix butter, sugar, egg and flavoring until creamy. Measure flour by sifting. Mix dry ingredients. Blend into butter mixture.
    2. 2
      Divide dough in half, reserve for trim. Roll remaining dough in 2 (12x6-inch) rectangles on a well-floured or cloth covered board. Cut each rectangle lengthwise in 3 equal strips. With a spatula, carefully lift each strip to a parchment lined baking sheet, placing 1 inch apart.
    3. 3
      Spoon reserved dough into a cookie press. Work in 2 teaspoons cream if it is too dry. Using the smallest star design, press out long ropes on each side of strip, and also 1 down center, pressing down slightly to seal. If you do not have a cookie press, you can roll long, thin ropes instead. Bake about 10 minutes, or until edges are delicately browned.
    4. 4
      Cool. Fill in the rows of trim with jelly or icing. Carefully cut 1-inch diagonal pieces with a sharp knife.
