DIRECTIONS

  • Put the first 5 ingredients in a bowl.
  • Beat well with an electric mixer.
  • Add the flour.
  • Mix gently with a spoon until well blended.
  • Cover and put in the refrigerator.
  • Chill well.
  • Roll the dough out on a flat, floured surface.
  • Do not roll the dough out too thin or too thick. I usually roll it out to about a 1/4 inch thick.
  • Cut your cookies out and put them on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake in the oven for 12-14 minutes at 350 degrees.
  • **Note** do not overbake. I usually take them out of the over when the bottom of the cookies are slightly brown.
  • Let cool in a single layer on wax paper.
  • When they are cool, frost and decorate with colored sugars.
