DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375°F Mix butter, sugar, egg and flavoring until creamy. Measure flour by sifting. Mix dry ingredients. Blend into butter mixture.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Cool. Fill in the rows of trim with jelly or icing. Carefully cut 1-inch diagonal pieces with a sharp knife.
